Right from the moment I inquired about an anniversary romantic getaway, Gareth and his team provided quick, bespoke, and excellent service. A package was quickly tailored for our requirements and right throughout our stay, every point of contact was faultless. The location of the lodge is magnificent and the accommodation private and luxurious. We booked extra massage treatments as well as a horsehide, both of which were fantastic additions to our stay. I would highly recommend Sani Valley Nature Lodge. We'll certainly be back soon.

A little piece of Heaven in the Southern Drakensberg Region. Booked one of the newer Early Mist luxury cottages - Under floor heating/heated blankets/Jacuzzi etc. Exceptionally clean inside and out. The views from the main bedroom in the morning are beyond words! Early morning surprises from the various animals on the property at your doorstep. Lovely Full breakfast was served in our Cottage on the second day. Peaceful and quiet - cottages are spaced out. Excellent service from a very friendly Gareth and his team! He even arranged massages on short notice in our cottage. They have thought of everything you would need. Even had a small hail storm thrown into the mix! Advised to bring whatever supplies/food you need - The town (Himeville/Underberg) is quite some distance. The access road to the property maybe best suited for an SUV or Bakkie - lovely scenic drive.

Everything was perfect. Highly recommended for all couples needing a break away from their busy lives. Me and hubby had a wonderful get away at Sani Valley Nature Lodge. The lodge is situated between the mountains which overs you a spectacular view and privacy. The entire place was clean with everything you needed, the surroundings breath taking. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We ordered supper 1 night as we decided to stay another night. Compliments to the chef for a 5 star meal! This lodge offers the ideal get away for couples. We will definitely be back!! The horsey kisses was a bonus!!
