Montusi Mountain Lodge


Montusi Mountain Lodge offers genuine hospitality in the tranquility of one of the most beautiful settings in Southern Africa.

Come discover space, luxury and tranquility when you visit Montusi. Witness the natural splendour and romantic ambience of this Northern Drakensberg haven.

Situated midway between Johannesburg and Durban, Montusi Mountain Lodge is one of the few destinations with a panoramic vista of the Drakensberg’s most famous feature, the Amphitheatre escarpment.

Join us and enjoy the beautiful Drakensberg mountains from a luxury setting where you can be as active or relaxed as you choose.

Montusi Mountain Lodge was established in June 2000 by the Carte family and has created a unique opportunity for guests to indulge in the freedom of the wild Drakensberg experience.

Montusi believes that preservation is an integral part of conservation in the Northern Drakensberg. With this in mind, over the last ten years invasive wattle trees have been eradicated from Montusi and the area rehabilitated by planting indigenous trees.

This effort has culminated in the indigenous forests, and resultant indigenous birdlife, flourishing. Additionally, this has seen the return of Mountain Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebuck, Bushbuck and the elusive Eland that have begun to populate this area once inhabited by Bushmen.

This is an idyllic escape to space, comfort and peace.


Montusi boasts the 16 beautifully appointed suites set in open gardens each with panoramic views of the Amphitheatre and surrounding mountains.

All the suites are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities and a bar fridge for fresh milk. A minibar facility in the suite is available upon request.

We look forward to hearing from you
