Karkloof Safari Spa is a luxurious, boutique lodge with 16 individually decorated villas, located 1.5 hours' drive from Durban and just 24km from Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu Natal's magnificent Midlands region. Towering cliffs and magnificent countryside surround the lodge and the waters of the Albert Falls Dam can be seen from this tranquil retreat. The Umgeni and the Karkloof rivers meet on this 3,500-hectare estate, which attracts large herds of wildlife, including white rhinos.
Each villa is hidden among the verdant trees to offer maximum privacy and four of the villas can be interconnected for families or groups travelling together. All feature spacious bathrooms with double baths and room amenities include air conditioning, underfloor heating, satellite television, internet access, a complimentary minibar and espresso machine.
The lodge has been designed to complement its natural surroundings and the first-class spa offers authentic Thai spa treatments in 17 treatment rooms, all of which have views over the native bush and surrounding gardens. Other facilities include a manicure / pedicure room, flotation pool, kneip pools, jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms.
