About Mkomazana Mountain Cottages
Mkomazana is an historical site situated within a trans-frontier peace park; a unique property nestled at the foot of the Sani Pass in the beautiful Sani Valley. It is a nature lover’s paradise and possibly the Southern Drakensberg’s best-kept secret.
The accommodation is a charming combination of eclectic facilities consisting of two original and recently refurbished farmhouses and three picturesque new cottages with all home comforts. This former trading station from the 1800's era is perfectly situated for a range of outdoor activities including - high or low 'berg walking / backpacking / nature rambling / trout fishing (rates on request) / swimming in crystal clear mountain pools / mountain biking / bird watching. All of these activities can be undertaken from the property. You can also canoe or tube in the area (± 20km away) and play golf, squash or tennis (±4ms away)
Whilst we wish to preserve the serenity of the area (and therefore do not allow motorbikes/quads to be ridden on the property), exhilarating fun for the adventurous can be had at the bottom of the driveway - test your 4x4 / mountain bike / motor bike skills on the famous and formidable Sani Pass which takes you up into the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. At the top of the Pass is the legendary "Sani Top Chalet" which lays claim to "the highest pub in Africa".
NB: Bring your PASSPORT. If you do not have your own 4x4, tours up Sani Pass can be arranged (details on request). We have it all, flora; fauna (including otter, baboon, reedbuck, eland); wide variety of birds (including black eagle, bearded vulture & fish eagle); provenance of people past (history; bushman paintings) waterfalls, crystal clear 'berg rivers and pools; dams.
We guarantee you will not visit just once!
