About Kwela Lodge

Kwela Lodge is a historical country home situated at the foot of Otto’s Bluff Mountain with a breathtaking panoramic view over the Albert Falls Dam and Umgeni Valley against the backdrop of the Karkloof Mountain.

It is the ideal place for a weekend, family getaway or business overnight stay - anyone wanting to relax and seeking tranquility, peace and security in country surrounding. Only 15 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, 20 minutes from Albert Falls Dam Reserve and 1 hour from Durban.

Enjoy our beautiful gardens and trees which are home to an abundance of birds and make friends with our farm animals. Explore the unspoilt African bush on our 58 ha property with a chance to see Nyala, Duiker, Warthog, Bushpig and Vervet Monkeys. Or simply relax at the Pool and listen to the rustle of the palm leaves above you.

Be inspired by the history of this magic place which dates back to 1881 when the first settler arrived in this valley and 1936 when the movie "King Solomon's mines" was filmed in this area.
