Game drives

Eland, hartebeest, blesbok, zebra, duiker, reedbuck and the protected orbit, are all wildlife on the local reserves.  Discover these sights during a game drive in the open game viewer while witnessing the outstanding view from the mountain top.  There is a fascinating mixture of grasslands, wetlands, and local mountain forests and so the local landscape allows for exceptional sightseeing.

Wine and Dine initiative

The Qambathi Mountain Lodge forms part of a KwaZulu-Natal Wine and Dine Initiative where guests and tourists can experience the highest standard of gastronomy from just a select few good lodges in the region.

Guests mingle with the chef and benefit from his tips and wine pairing with the delicious food.  Courses develop into exciting events that inspire entertaining discussions with the chef and other diners.  Bush dinners and shining stargazing around the boma fire set the tone for a perfect end to the picture-perfect day.

Nearby activities

The extensive 200-kilometer long mountain range, The Drakensberg, provides an incredible backdrop for unique experiences in the region. The mountainous wonderland is a world heritage site and so very popular amongst South Africans and international tourists alike while The Kamberg Nature Reserve and The Highmoor Nature Reserve (just 5km away from the lodge) leave guests breathless at the magnificence of the region.

Nearby attractions

The Midlands Meander, best described as one of South Africa’s most popular travel routes, is renowned for its beautiful and breath-taking splendor.

Attractions include lures of a former area as well as some outdoor activities ranging from golf to horse riding, fly-fishing to picturesque park-drives.  Some might say the “shop-till-you-drop” experience at the exclusive arts and crafts amenities is the best of all!
