About Tenahead Mountain Lodge

In a remote region of South Africa where three mountain ranges meet - the Drakensberg, the Witteberg and the Maluti - lies a very special place. Tenahead is 3500 hectares of unspoiled mountains, valleys and streams. It holds a treasury of flora and fauna and it is the perfect place to experience another life.

A Nature-lover’s Eden, Tenahead is home to many antelope and smaller animals including lynx, jackals, rock rabbits, amphibians, reptiles and over 300 species of birds. The hills and valleys are a comucopia of wild flowers and at night, the skies are spangled with millions of stars. Tenahead winters are crisp with snow blanketing the ground; the summers are fresh with possible thunderstorms. Tenahead will reawaken a spirit inside you long made dormant by modern living.

Accommodation

This spectacular 5 star lodge has grand, en-suite bedrooms with open fireplaces, which are lit throughout the snowy winter. Each is beautifully furnished for comfort and luxury. Large double glazed windows grace a single wall of each bedroom, framing panoramic views of the awesome mountains and valleys.

The bedrooms all have a stocked bar fridge, tea ad coffee facilities, satellite television and satellite phone. The bathrooms are fitted with both shower and bath and amenities for that personal touch.

Facilities

Hadn't been for a number of years and took visitors with me this time. Was not disappointed! Still a 5 star lodge worthy of its accolades. Perfect stay, visitors impressed.

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed at Tenahead on our honeymoon and I cannot praise this place enough! Truly unique - Nadine and Leon's warm hospitality made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much effort. We had the fires going in our room everynight and awoke to stunning panoramic views of the mountains every morning. I cant wait to go back for our anniversary :)
