Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse


A farmhouse fit for a queen

Against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains you will find the Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse, a romantic gourmet getaway and proud member of the ‘Best of KZN’ collective. Owned and operated by Richard and Mouse Poynton, a couple of well-travelled foodies, this lodge is sure to satisfy the most voracious of appetites, all the while affording the opportunity of escape from city life.

Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse makes its home in Kamberg Valley, a serene hideaway close to the Giant’s Castle Nature Reserve. 10 minutes from the lodge you will find Highmoor Nature Reserve, a recently declared World Heritage Site and an absolute delight for hikers and walkers. Other activities include horseback-riding, trout-fishing and even helicopter flyover tours of the Drakensberg mountains.

The most exciting thing about Cleopatra, however, has to be the food. Dinner time is the highlight here with 7 courses of meticulously prepared creations that change daily and seasonally. And once the last bite is gone, a good night’s sleep in one of the 11 individually decorated rooms is sure to seal the deal on what is, no doubt, one of the best gourmet lodges around.
