If You like to stay on a very quiet spot in the middle of nowhere then Iketla is the place to be. 550 hectare of pure Drakensberg mountain nature is surrounding the lodge. Very spacy rooms, all the comfort you want, even an all fresco shower . good breakfast and tastefull South-African dinner; nice choise of wines on the card.
From the lodge there are 4 or 5 walkingtrails , starting from a 1 hour trail to a trail of several hours. Starting from the lodge i did the panoramatour whith the3 rondavels, the potholes,the waterfalls , blyde river canyon etc.nice place to stay for a couple of days !

Wonderful place! Fantastic Accomodation in an own Bungalow with a view on a waterhole, where Kudus, Bushbocks, Warthogs... come to have a drink in the morning and afternoon. Great hiking opportunities (easy trails for 1 hour up to hiking on a 4 hour trail). Very warm and friendly welcome. Lodge owners are always happy to give advice and help! Food is really, really good!
Perfect place to relax and walk and also to explore the beautiful sourrounding area!

Room Tip: Best view in Bungalow 3 and 4

One of most spectacular routes in the northen part of South-Africa is the Panorama Route. The Iketla Lodge is close to the route and it is a beautiful hotel to relax after visiting the Route. The lodge is developing and in the next couple of years they want to add more animals. The breakfasts and dinners are delicious, with some traditional and nice dishes. Especially liked the kudu pie! Swimming pool is big enough to come to rest.
The lodges were really big for 2 persons and I liked the idea of an outside shower (next to an inside shower). Sometimes there were some problems with the warm water in the shower but they try to solve your issues immediately.
A splendid lodge, worth its stars!

This lodge was great and very relaxing. The staff is super friendly, the food is awesome, the rooms are beautiful (with outside shower!) and there are plenty of scenery in the surrounding. Great experience, definitely come back to this place. I would not dare to skip bushkombuis!
