We stayed here in June 2015 and the place is absolutely amazing with stunning views of the drakenberg and the amphitheatre. The rooms are modern with a gas fireplace which comes in very handy in the evening. The room was equiped with a king size bed and an ensuite with a shower and a bath. The view from the room... More

Bonus includes a bar fridge and the rooms are all separate from one another, so you basically have your own private little cottage with a patio . The meals were well presented and everyones needs were catered... More

This is a beautiful lodge situated 10k from the entrance to the Royal Natal Park and stunning walks in the Drakensburg. The gorge walk is amazing when you get high into the gorge and the views are stunning. We were very well looked after and made to feel very welcome. Very good food

I spent 3 nights here in June 2015 with my husband and in-laws. We had a lovely chalet (two double rooms each with an en-suite and a kitchen / sitting room area, plus a terrace with a beautiful view of the mountains) and the lodge has a main area with a big communal sitting room, dining room and bar, all...

The Montusi is located in a beautiful spot in the foothills of the Northern Drakensburg not far from the national park (an easy 20-minute drive). It is a full-service resort with many activities available, yet it is serene and low-key, unlike the bustling and much larger neighbor Alpine Heath a few kilometers away (families with young children might consider the...

We had a 3 night stay at Montusi Mountain resort and could easily have stayed longer. We were in a mountain suite which had wonderful views of the Drakensberg Mountains and amphitheatre. The staff were all welcoming, friendly and helpful. There are guided walks offered every morning which was an excellent way to explore some of the local surroundings. Walks... More

We took our friends from Germany for two day stay at Montusi. We were blessed with clear skies and balmy weather. The rooms are superb with an excellent view of the Amphitheatre, and the surrounding Drakensberg Mountains. There are many great walks in the area as well as horse riding, swimming, and special activities. We were treated to a rare... More

I had the pleasure of a three night stay at this beautiful resort, accompanied by my elderly parents. The owners and staff did everything to make us feel welcome and cared for. The friendly atmosphere is enhanced by attention to detail in every sphere, from room presentation to meal preparation and manicured gardens. All this in the magnificent mountain setting... More
