In the midlands of the Drakensberg, neatly tucked away in Mooi Rivier in KwaZulu-Natal, rests this little sanctuary known as the Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse. Guests are invited to stay at this farmhouse to experience true country living. The lodge is a 2 hour drive from Durban and 5 hours away from Johannesburg.
Attention to detail is placed in each room with a few personal touches that the family collected from their worldly travels. On stormy days, the farmhouse lounge area is where guests get to enjoy fragrant cups of coffee and rich slices of chocolate cake.
