Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and with the various restaurant restrictions in place and beaches and parks being closed, it is the perfect time for you and your loved one to escape the city and head to the mountains.
Nestled among glorious mountain backdrops and overlooking the Amphitheatre, one of the seven wonders of South Africa, Montusi Mountain Lodge in the KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg, is the ideal place to do just that. With plenty of fresh air and space and a mere 3.5 hours from Joburg and 2.5 hours from Durban, Montusi offers couples a romantic getaway, where they can enjoy each other and socially distance themselves from other guests.
Enjoy a stroll around Montusi’s beautifully manicured grounds, or read a book and soak up some rays at the nature-inspired pool. Head into the mountains for a private picnic lunch and later, watch the sun sink below the horizon while enjoying the view on horseback. Conclude the day with a locally-inspired, fairy-lit, fusion feast under the stars, followed by a nightcap on the patio of your luxury suite.
Couples looking for some more adventure, can hike and bike a plethora of well-maintained trails, as well as visit All Out Adventures – just five minutes down the road – for some adrenalin-pumping action, including a King Swing, Cable Tour, Quad Biking and more.
Whether you are looking for a place to relax, unwind and just breathe in the fresh mountain air or trail run to the tops of the surrounding peaks, Montusi offers something for all.
