Just 30 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, descend into a verdant valley in the Kwazulu Natal Midlands and find yourself a world apart where time simply melts away. Karkloof Safari Spa — on its varied property encompassing 3,500ha, packed with game and ornamented with trickling streams and 5 waterfalls—is an absolute haven solely geared to please and revitalise.
The safari and spa components of this world class five-star destination are beautifully balanced. Home to a range of herbivores including buffalo, white rhino and giraffe (and only small predators), guests are free to really immerse themselves in nature. A private game drive vehicle is at your beck and call—no need to rise early in this teeming valley.
