Located in the Eastern Free State's pristine Sterkfontein Nature Reserve at the foothills of the Drakensberg Escarpment, Wild Horses Lodge is the perfect location for an African breakaway. With its panoramic views of the majestic Platberg Mountain and the vast Sterkfontein Dam, the Lodge is a masterpiece of architectural design in local sandstone and offers luxury accommodation, exquisite cuisine and a variety of activities centred around the dam and the abundant wildlife of the reserve.

This small, romantic country lodge with its four ultra luxurious suites, is privately owned by hosts Jon and Trish Hawkins, who offer personalised service and a warm South African welcome to guests seeking tranquility, comfort and stylish sophistication in beautiful surroundings.

Conveniently situated halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, just 30 km from Harrismith, Wild Horses is the perfect place to rejuvenate mind, body and soul. We undertake to provide our guests with peaceful surroundings and complete privacy and, for this reason, children and pets and not permitted.

The Lodge consists of an accommodation wing, a dining room which opens onto an extensive terrace, a lounge with private library and a well-stocked wine cellar. A Koi pond, rim-flow pool, rose garden and landscaped indigenous garden complete the picture.

Accommodation is offered on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis or the Lodge can be booked in its entirety for private functions.

Smoking is not permitted in the Rooms, Bar, Guest Lounge or Dining Room.

Those wanting to relax and savour the tranquility and beauty of the surrounds will not be disturbed. Read the daily newspapers in the lounge. Bask in the sun at the rim-flow pool with its views over the expansive Sterkfontein Dam or indulge in a massage in your suite. Stroll around the indigenous garden or the extensive rose garden or watch the Koi glide through the cool waters of the pond.

The more energetic can choose from a host of on-site activities.
