Montusi Self-Catering Cottages

From R450 PPS

Overview

Montusi is a spacious and quiet development in the Northern KwaZulu Natal Drakensberg near Royal Natal National Park. There are six privately owned self-catering cottages situated on the Montusi Estate (separate from Montusi Mountain Lodge). Each cottage has magnificent views of the Drakensberg's Amphitheatre, a World Heritage site.
The 1000 hectare Montusi Estate offers guests a playground like no other, where they can hike, horse-ride, mountain bike and relax in a safe and pristine mountain environment. The expansive mountain views and distance from the road make the peace and quiet almost tangible.

Activities abound:
Daily guided hikes for a cup of tea in the Wilderness are a highlight, but guests are free to explore without a guide. The hikes visit the bushman paintings in the Bushmen's cave; a lovely Waterfall at the Waterfall Cave, the scenic riverside loop on the Wanhoop Loop or the spectacular views on the top of Montusi Peak
The Drakensberg Mountain Bike Trail network incorporates the Northern Berg resorts and is accessible right from Montusi. The trails are purpose built and maintained and stretch for almost 100 km.
The hiking paths and mountain bike trails double as excellent trail-running routes for all levels of runner.
The Northern Horse operates excellent horse-riding trips from the Estate. The well-loved horses take guests over the mountains, fields and rivers on exciting equine adventures.
There is a tennis court and swimming pool for guests to use, and the two trout dams provide fly-fishermen with a great opportunity for an relaxing afternoon or early morning session.

The Montusi Mountain Lodge main building is only available to self-catering guests by special arrangement. Dinner and breakfast are only available to self-catering guests when booked the day before. Advance bookings and walk-ins cannot be accommodated for breakfast and dinner because the Lodge accommodation is let on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and there is limited space in the dining room.

Guests need to bring all their own food, swimming towels and torches. There is no grocery shop on the property: the closest town with shops, chemist and a doctor is 50km from us.

The Montusi Self-Catering Cottages offer guests a peaceful escape where they can make their own timetables and completely unwind.

Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
