MOUNT KOMATI LODGE & HIKING TRAILS

Welcome to our charming stone and thatch lodge, situated on the banks of the upper Komati River in the Drakensberg Mountain Escarpment between Machadodorp and Badplaas, Mpumalanga. Only 2.5 hour's drive from Gauteng.

Come and spoil yourself in our cozy, private lodge consisting of 4 stone and thatch chalets with accommodation facilities for groups up to 20 (extra mattresses optional).

2x excellent day circular hiking trails: Round the Rock Route 13,5km and The Paradise Route of 4,5km. Beautiful, clearly marked, self guided trails for all levels of hikers and true nature lovers! Enjoy the cliffs and overhead kranzes with cataracts and clear mountain streams to quench your thirst. Wind your way up the escarpment, enjoy the shapely sandstone formations and at the highest point (altitude 1830m) admire an amazing view of mountains and rolling plains. Little Paradise route takes you through another type of topography, however as scenic as the first day's route. It ends 100m downstream from the camp where you can rest your feet on the river edge embankment, plunge in a cool pool or enjoy a natural jacuzzi on the rapids.
