We spent 3 nights at Montusi - we had one of the garden suites with the most stunning views of the amphitheatre. The food and service were outstanding and the hosts were very knowledgeable in helping us plan hikes both locally and to the top of tugela falls. Would highly recommend Montusi to people looking to explore the drakensburg but also for relaxing in fabulous surroundings. And for stargazing on a clear night!

Thanks very much for enjoying your time with us! It is the best for us when people adventure into the mountains and love the magic Montusi offers - well done of getting to the top of the Tugela Falls! Our clear skies (day and night) and the peaceful atmosphere are 2 of the things we find it difficult to explain to people before they get here, even though these two things are among the most the striking. We hope to welcom eyou back again one day. In the meantime, we will do our best to keep Montusi and our mountains fabulous. Kind regards, Lindsay

We enjoyed virtually every aspect of this lovely lodge. The setting is truly stunning and surrounding grounds beautifully immaculate. Sitting on one’s tranquil cottage terrace looking out across the valley was a real delight. The cottage was cosy, inviting, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We very much enjoyed having a few early evening drinks on the main lodge terrace; watching the swallows and taking in the wonderful views: the open air dinning room proved to be a charming and atmospheric place to have dinner. Both breakfasts’ and dinners were good although we did find the dinning room service a tad disjointed and slow at times. Would we go back and would we recommend to friends and family ? Yes to both !

If you come here, stay for at least two nights as it’s a great hotel with lovely cottage accommodation, good service and pleasant food. The pool is excellent. This is a place for hikes if only to the nearby waterfall.

Montusi must be the calmest most serene Lodge in the Drakensburg. The units are luxurious and well appointed. Our unit had a great view of the Amphitheater. The food is exceptional. My wife is a vegetarian and was catered for with a separate menu. The staff is excellent.

Dear Etienne, Thank you so much for this review - I guess the essence of Montusi really came through to you guys:D We are so happy that you loved your time in the peace of Montusi. We do our best to provide vegetarians (and all other restricted diets!) as good a meal as the omnivores so we are delighted that Mrs Theron enjoyed her meals too. We wish you all the best for the year ahead and hope to see you again one day. Kind regards, Lindsay
