About Penwarn Country Lodge

Penwarn Country Lodge is nestled in a beautiful valley in the Southern Drakensberg. Traversed by the Ngangwane river, this farm boasts a wide variety of game, including zebra, wildebeest, and antelope. For birding enthusiasts, our wetlands are home to 280 species of birds, including the elusive wattled crane.

The magnificent southern Drakensberg mountains rise up in the west and include famous peaks such as Hodgsons, Garden Castle, Rhino, and of course, the legendary Sani Pass. Rosy sunrises, and star-studded evening skies form the back drop to an intimate break from city life. The rustic charm of the lodges is set against the luxury of fine fare and good, old fashioned country hospitality. Only 25 minutes from the mountain village of Underberg, this is the ideal base for day trips up Sani Pass - remember your passports.


The farm offers a choice of eight accommodation options to suit your needs and the size of your group. All guests can make use of the Nimrod country restaurant on the estate as well our friendly pub, The Fly, Shot and Saddle. While here you may also take a tour of our dairy farm.
