A great place for a long week's vacation. The house is enormous with loads to keep both adults and kids entertained. The views from the mountain top are spectacular and the peace and quiet in the evenings, together with the amazing star-gazing is incredible. Highly recommended

We had a fabulous stay at Enuhleni Lodge. We were greeted very friendly by Damaris and showed to our clean and spacious rooms. The facilities are modern and everything is in good working order. Love love love the outdoor shower, even at night in the middle of the winter!! We would love to go back!!

Our stay was wonderful. All our needs were catered for. Everything you can want on your get away is available. We especially enjoyed the wide variety of board games in the house.It was a pity that the hot tub was out of order but we were not bored for one moment

Really enjoyed our stay, home away from home. It was so relaxing sitting on the deck playing games, reading and star gazing at night.The lodge was very clean and had all the comforts of home.  Damarus was fantastic and very helpful, such a lovely friendly lady. We loved getting a visit from the buck and some squirrels. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
