We had an amazing time at Inkungu Lodge. The views are amazing and the hosts are so gracious and welcoming. They even organised a Birthday cake for my special day. The dogs and the fireplace made it super homey. The food was fabulous too. Loved every second. Thank you guys so very much!!

Stunning views and pure beauty. The food and wine was superb and rooms very comfortable. The hosts really made you feel welcome. Will definitely return for another visit. Maybe in the summer to try the pool.

2 night stay in the Drakensbergs, and this was a great choice of hotel. The others in the area all seemed to be enormous resort hotels which wouldn't have suited us. Incredible situation, with views to the hills and lovely swimming pool. Great walks nearby, and try hard to be there on a Wednesday to go to a concert by... More

The lodge and rooms are fantastic. The decor is gorgeous, the view spectacular but above all the hosting was second to none. Our hosts went above and beyond what was required to make sure we had a brilliant stay, including helping us to organise all of our day and evening activities. We left feeling like we had stayed with old... More
