About Mount Sheba Country Lodge Hotel

Sleepily tucked away amongst the mountains above the historic mining town of Pilgrims Rest lies Mount Sheba Country Lodge. Surrounded by indigenous forests this up-market lodge resort is an ideal retreat yet lies in easy distance to some on Mpumalanga's superb tourist attractions including 'God's Window', the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke's Potholes and of course the Kruger National Park.

This twenty-five suite lodge offers all the necessary trimmings needed for that well earned, relaxed getaway or professional business seminar.

The beautifully decorated en-suite bedrooms with private patios offer panoramic views allowing the beauty of the surroundings to be enjoyed from the comfort of your room. The cozy bedroom fireplaces are a perfect place to snuggle up with a book on chilly winter nights and your every comfort is catered for.

At the main lodge cocktail hour is an event in the 'Potted Owl' before dining in the Chandelier Restaurant where the world-class gourmet menus are complimented by exceptional service that the Three Cities Group has become renowned for.

For the leisure guest there is plenty to keep you occupied. Apart from visiting the many sights of the area there is also superb hiking, mountain biking along trails through thick indigenous forests, trout fishing and forest picnics. For birding enthusiasts Mount Sheba is a 'Mecca'. Internationally known Peter Lawson conducts regular birding outings in the area which is renowned for its bird life.
