We decided to break our journey from Natal to Guateng and opted for Ikungu Lodge. It is well situated in the Drakensberg with lots to do in the area. We were treated to the Presidential Suite that included a balcony where we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst admiring the scenery. The lodge is a great place... More

We stayed at Inkungu over the long weekend in June. Although management was warm welcoming and accomodating, and the staff inexperienced were eager to please, the stay was below average. For the price you pay, akin to a proper five star establishment, attention to detail, cleanliness and overall mbience was below par. For instance there is no turn down facility... More

Stunning place with fantastic views of the Drakensberg. Felt very welcomed by both staff and owners, who took us to a private Biltong making masterclass! Food is absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience! Gijs and Suzanne

my wife and I stayed 2 nights in November 2012 after reading the reviews . The lodge is basically a boutique hotel with magnificent views across the hills up into the Drakensburg escarpment .After a slightly prickly booking and check-in experience and some very closed entrance gates we were made most welcome and comfortable in this quite stylish modern/ traditional...
