What a treat my wife and I had at Montusi! Cottage was great, food excellent and staff very friendly and efficient. Lots of activities to keep you busy, if getting bored of doing nothing gets to you. But the best part is the "doing nothing"!! We would definitely recommend this Lodge!

A quiet getaway in the Drakensburg. What a treat, this holiday venue is just right if you looking for peace and tranquility. Each chalet is completely separate from another. Chalets are well equipped. Mattresses are decent. Dining is a la carte and there is a very good selection to choose from. Some of the meals are outstanding. Compliments to the Chef. Only just over 3 hours from Jhb

Dear Philip, Thanks so much for choosing Montusi for your mountain getaway! We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and found it to be a peaceful reprieve from the hectic Joburg pace. It is indeed an easy drive down from the Big City and we have loved hosting more South Africans in our post-Covid era. We hope to welcome you back again one day. All the very best, Lindsay
