Location and accommodation

Montusi’s location is simply unbeatable. The lodge sits on a vast private estate, boasting panoramic views of the Amphitheatre.

Montusi offers a plethora of activities for all interests. Adventurous souls can embark on guided hikes through the estate’s scenic trails, while nature enthusiasts can enjoy bird watching or exploring the nearby rock pools.

We particularly enjoyed the complimentary guided walk, led by a knowledgeable staff member who shared fascinating insights into the region’s flora and fauna.

For those seeking relaxation, the lodge boasts a sparkling swimming pool nestled amidst the gardens, perfect for unwinding with a good book.

An on-site tennis court caters to guests with a competitive spirit, while a massage treatment provides much-needed relief after our hikes.
