Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse

Within a decade, Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse has earned global renown as a romantic gourmet getaway

Nestled in the heart of the Kwa-Zulu Natal Drakensberg, Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse is a 5 star lodge dedicated to sumptuous food and rustic luxury. With just 11 rooms we are a haven for those looking to break away from their fast-paced life to enjoy mountain walks, roaring log fires, 7 course dinners and time for relaxation and pampering.

Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse is situated in the KwaZulu-Natal section of the Drakensberg, a range of mountains that run down the east side of South Africa, 2 hours drive from Durban and 5 hours drive from Johannesburg.

Summer temperatures may range from 20°C during the day, often with dramatic afternoon thunderstorms. Winter daytime temperatures range from 10°C to 25°C and the night temperatures can drop to below 0°C.

The menu changes every evening according to the seasons in our gardens and the availability of our local produce.

There is a bountifully stocked underground cellar and we focus on local South African wines (Although a few French champagnes have been known to sneak themselves in from time to time!)

Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse is a proud member of the Best of KZN – a group of luxury owner-run hotels based throughout KwaZulu-Natal, with great emphasis on the guest’s complete comfort.
