A comfortably furnished full en-suite lodge situated in a private nature reserve bordering a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the dramatic Drakensberg Mountain Range.

The Lakeside Lodge at Sani Valley offers exquisitely decorated, stand alone accommodation and boasts magnificent lake and mountain views.

Ideal for couples and small families.

The space
Each Lakeside Lodge ideally sleeps two people, but does have a small nook behind the main bedroom with a double stack bed suitable for two children. Each unit boasts stunning mountain and lake views from the living area, bedroom and bathroom and also features a heated jacuzzi on your private deck, fully-equipped kitchen with modern fittings, DSTV and DVD player in open plan lounge, fireplace for the winter months, ceiling fans, heated blankets, heating and heated towel rails in bathrooms, BBQ facilities, undercover parking, and a digital coded safe.

Guest access
The reserve has a very limited number of secluded luxury lodges designed to accommodate couples, families and small groups. We include daily housekeeping in our rates to allow our guests an enjoyable, comfortable and relaxed stay.

One can indulge in a massage, be taught how to fly fish, go otter spotting by canoe, lounge in the jacuzzi, be taken game viewing on horseback, drive a 4X4 up the famous Sani Pass, and/or hike to the Bushmen paintings.

Other things to note
Complimentary wireless internet access is available in the reception, boathouse and lakeside chalets only.

Sani Valley does offer breakfast and dinner on request at an additional charge. Kindly advise reservations when booking should you require meals during your stay.

Location

East Griqualand, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

The Sani Valley Nature Lodges is the closest luxury lodge to the famous Sani Pass. Within the valley sits one of the largest privately owned lakes in South Africa. The lodges are scattered on the edge of this lake and surrounded by a variety of antelope, zebra, baboons and other wildlife. This is one of the very few animal reserves in the Drakensberg, further enhanced by the vast lake which attracts unparalleled birdlife. The fishing is well renowned with regional records being attributed to the size of the lake.

Enjoy the freedom of 260 acres of lake, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and game.
