Karkloof Safari Spa

KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Nestled within the verdant Karkloof Valley, Karkloof Safari Spa offers simplistic luxury. Clearly inspired by its naturally beautiful surroundings, this luxurious spa lodge feels spacious and airy thanks to wide open spaces and country-home vibe.

A trip to Karkloof Safari Spa isn’t complete without a trip to the spa – a wonderfully peaceful haven suited to revitalising your mind, body and soul. With a roman bath, Jacuzzi, steam room, and even a yoga studio, this luxury lodge really hones in on health and wellbeing.

With only 16 private and individually decorated villas altogether, you’ll enjoy a beautifully intimate experience here. Hidden within the luscious forest, each villa has a rustic charm, and yet still offers modern, luxurious amenities. From the heated floors and standalone bath, to the thatched roofs and views of Albert Falls Dam, the villas here are opulent yet classic.

The main lodge is stunning, accessible via scenic walkways that cross over the gently trickling streams. We love the cosy lounge area, fit with a toasty fireplace and country-style décor, and the expansive wraparound veranda that offers a quiet place to sit and watch wildlife roam by.

Promoting health and wellbeing is a huge part of this luxury lodge, from the outdoor leisurely activities, all the way down to the food. The freshly prepared local fare is indulgent, simple and delicious, picked from the nearby farms and created by brilliant chefs.
