Drakensberg Mountains - Cleopatras Mountain Farm Residence Retreat

Nestled absent in the spectacular UKlahlamba Drakensberg mountain variety in the Kamberg Valley in the vicinity of Giant’s Castle, you will find Cleopatras Mountain Farmhouse. This exceptional Connoisseur mountain lodge is 200 km from Durban airport and 450 km from Johannesburg worldwide airport. I drove down from Johannesburg and the vacation took me all around 5 hours alongside the N3 toll highway prior to coming off at Mooi River. From there, it really is no a lot more than 30 miles and although the instructions had been very good, it is advisable to have out this portion of the generate by daylight to make it less complicated to see the landmarks that are described in the instructions.

In the lengthy operate, I arrived but as it was dark, I was not in a situation to wholly enjoy the splendor of its spot till the next day. I had also confirmed up much also late for the 6 training course evening meal which was a pity. There are 11 suites at Cleopatras and every single one is exclusive. I was checked into area two, the Scandinavian area and it was remarkable and quite roomy. It had been a extended working day so I shortly got into my mattress that was warmed by an electric blanket and went to rest.

Drakensberg location got up early as I experienced a prolonged generate to the Zulu Battlefields in advance of me but first I wished to have a look spherical. The morning mist hung over the encircling mountains and I could nicely see exactly what a beautiful location it was. I made my way to the breakfast area where a wonderful three program food was dished up to set me up nicely for the working day. The chef at Cleopatras produces his foodstuff with flavour as his main purpose and I had to say that I was not dissatisfied. In truth, I don’t recall the last time I was dished up this sort of a good breakfast.
