About Montusi Self Catering Cottages
Montusi is a spacious and quiet development in the Northern KwaZulu Natal Drakensberg near Royal Natal National Park and Alpine Heath, the Cavern Berg Resort and Hlalanathi.
Self Catering Accommodation
There are six privately owned self-catering cottages which are separate from Montusi Mountain Lodge. Each cottage has magnificent views of the Drakensberg’s Amphitheatre, a World Heritage site.
Each cottage has three bedrooms (one double and four single beds), three bathrooms (one with bath and shower, one with only a bath and one with only a shower) and an open plan living area with a fully equipped kitchen, dining table and a lounge with private patio.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge / freezer, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher. The lounge has a TV, fireplace and there is a braai on the patio. Cutlery, crockery, bath towels and linen are all provided.
Situated in the Kwazulu Natal Drakensberg, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, Montusi has a full and uninterrupted view of the Drakensberg's most famous part, the Amphitheatre escarpment. Our guests enjoy this spectacular scenery in the comfort of their cottages. Activities on the 1000 hectare estate are diverse. Enjoy the peace.
Since June 2000 the Carte family has provided an opportunity for their guests to intimately indulge in the freedom of the Drakensberg experience. We believe in the conservation of the Northern Drakensberg and for ten years we have preserved and planted - changing a Wattle infested wasteland into a rehabilitated conservation area.
Our indigenous trees and manmade forests continue to flourish and the resultant birdlife (once non-existent) has become abundant. This ethic has resulted in the return of the Mountain Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebuck, Bushbuck and the elusive Eland to this area once inhabited by Bushmen. This is an idyllic escape to space, comfort and peace.
