The main lodge welcomes guests with its inviting lounge, complete with roaring fireplace in winter, and a reference library where you can brush up on your wildlife knowledge. Enjoy a glass of South Africa's finest wine on the wooden deck with superlative views or soothe yourself in the heated pool, before dining in the elegant restaurant or around the outside boma with the starry African sky as your ceiling.

Karkloof is famous for its Spa, which is regarded as one of the best in South Africa, and rightly so. There really is no better way to revitalise your mind and body, and soothe your soul, than with a range of treatments in the tranquil and untouched wilderness.

Relax in the reflection lounge, work up a sweat in the steam room or sauna and wallow in the bubbles of the jacuzzi with your loved one. There are an array of swimming pools, indoor and outdoor, to choose from and after all that hard work, why not savour some healthy, nourishing fare at the Greens & Teas Cafe?
