About Petra Mountain Retreat
Petra Mountain Retreat and Conference Centre is a Christian resort nestled on the ridge of Legogote Mountain in the scenic Lowveld and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding flora and fauna. Petra Mountain is conveniently situated a mere 15 minutes drive from the Kruger National Park, 30 minutes from Nelspruit, 10 minutes from White River, 20 minutes from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and close to many of the Lowveld’s attractions.
This is not only an ideal retreat as a stopover on the way to the Park, as a sleepover for businessmen, and as a holiday home from which to explore the rich beauty of the Lowveld, but is also the perfect venue for conferences, retreats, confirmation weekends, marriage guidance workshops, Alpha Courses and more. The breakaway venues at Petra Mountain are heavenly.
The spacious bedrooms are comfortable and attractively furnished and all are en-suite. The rooms are set high amongst the trees placing guests at eye-level with the birds and contributing much to the wonderful sense of peace and serenity one feels at Petra Mountain. There is also a facility for one to make a relaxing cup of tea or coffee in the bedroom. All the rooms are non-smoking.
The gardens of Petra are a peaceful retreat for the weary traveller. The mountain offers spectacular views over the Lowveld and indigenous bush. Guests are welcome to explore - walking, bird watching or just relaxing in the serene environment or cooling down in the pool on hot summer afternoons.
On a clear day, drink in the majestic atmosphere from the Prayer Rock which juts out of the mountain offering panoramic views of the surrounding valleys. On a cool day snuggle up with a good book and a hot drink in front of a huge fire in the lounge.
