Mountain Lodge


  • Great mountain views
  • Very family-friendly


  • Rather bland interiors

Fodor's Review

This attractive thatch lodge sits on a rocky hill overlooking miles of bushveld plains and the Ubombo Mountains. Wide verandas lead into the lounge and bar, with their high ceilings, dark beams, and cool tile floors. In winter guests can snuggle into cushioned wicker chairs next to a blazing log fire. Brick pathways wind down the hillside from the lodge to elegant split-level suites with mosquito nets, thatch roofs, and large decks overlooking the reserve. Children are welcome, although those under five are not allowed on game drives and 6- to 11-year-olds are permitted only at the manager's discretion.
