Welcome to Millard Mountain Lodge on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Barkly East, Northern Ukhahlamba.
Awake in the mornings to breakfast on our sun-soaked verandah and enjoy the silence – only interrupted by the sounds of farm animals, birds and the bubbling river. Gaze in awe at the mountain views and plan your day.
Millard’s tranquil valley is surrounded by the stunning mountains of the Eastern Cape Highlands - also known as “The Wild Side of the Drakensberg”. This idyllic setting is the perfect place to unwind. Far away from the stress of urban life, staying on this working farm will revitalize your senses and lift your spirits. We offer reasonably priced catered and self-catered accommodation for groups and families.

Guests of all ages will love our gentle riverside walks, complete with natural swimming pools and jacuzzis - ideal for a picnic lunch. We offer family-friendly adjoining rooms and parents will be able to truly relax whilst their children run around in freedom and safety.
As night falls, you can relax in front of a roaring log fire in our cosy lounge. Alternatively, you can braai outside and gaze up at the stars, so clear that you feel you can reach out and touch them. Finally, snuggle up in your warm cosy bed and enjoy a good night’s sleep before waking up in wild mountain paradise once again.
