At the foot of the legendary Ghost Mountain, 300 km north of Durban, lies the privately owned 4* Ghost Mountain Inn, a perfect setting for taking time out to relax and experience the charms of Africa in comfort and style. This intimate and beautiful hotel is the ideal location from which to explore the array of wildlife and coastal reserves in Maputaland and the Elephant Coast.
Nature enthusiasts will appreciate the abundance of wildlife and the scenic splendors of this rich and diverse region during game drives or guided forest walks in the nearby Mkhuze Big 5 Game Reserve, or join a boat cruise on Lake Jozini and view elephants swimming or even fish for a tiger fish. The area is also a bird watcher's paradise, and birding walks can be arranged. Night game drives in the Manyoni Private Game Reserve are another highlight.
The more active can work out in the small gym, take a scenic hike up Ghost Mountain and be rewarded with the outstanding views of the Lebombo Mountain Range and the plains beyond, or the culturally curious can visit a Zulu homestead and meet the locals.
Alternatively just take time out to relax and be pampered with skin and body treatments at the spa or simply enjoy the two swimming pools and glorious indigenous gardens.
Relax in one of the 74 tastefully appointed en-suite bedrooms or suites, all set within the gardens. Guests can choose from one of 4 suites, or a Mountain View Room, a Garden Room, a Superior Room or a Standard Room, depending on budget. Four of the Standard Rooms are interleading, making these an ideal choice for families travelling with children.
Meals are either served in the dining room, outdoors on the terrace or under the stars in the traditional boma.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
