What a reception at Karkloof Safari Spa

Africa's best kept secret?
This stunning property is situated a mere 20 minute drive
from Pietermaritzburg.
Should you wish to fly in from Johannesburg,
Airlink will get you to Oribi Airport in under an hour.
The drive from the airport is 30 minutes,
and that means that you can be enjoying a Spa treatment
in less than 2 hours of leaving Johannesburg!
Karkloof is also only 100km from Durban ICC.

Looking back towards the main access road.
Arriving guests drive through shallow water to get to reception.

This imposing structure is the Karkloof Safari Spa reception.
And guests are taken to the main lodge building and Spa
on a game drive vehicle.
The short ride offers visitors a "mini" game drive,
as the area teams with plains game and birds.

Welcome to Karkloof Safari Spa.
A reception area like no other.
Totally separate from the main lodge,
it offers guests a respite after their inbound journey.

If guests are awaiting transport back to the airport,
or other destinations, they are able to sit here and relax.
This deck, shaded by a huge tree, offers them game/bird viewing opportunities.
A great way to finish off a visit.

Two of the "Big 5" within a few meters of the reception area.
These two species, White Rhino and Cape Buffalo,
are often the most difficult to find when on a game drive.
Yet here they are, "greeting" guests as they arrive.

A most unusual sighting...
A pair of Grey Crowned Cranes.
Just one of the many bird species that can be found here.
Their call sounds like "may-hem"...
the antithesis of what Karkloof offers.
Perhaps THEY need a visit to the Spa?

This Cape Buffalo looks like he has spent some time at the Spa.

Part of YOUR "home" for the duration of your stay.

Some of the prestigious awards that Karkloof Safari Spa
has garnered over the last few years.
Including the "Best Safari Spa in Africa"!
It does not get any better than that.

Because of the "timeless" nature of Karkloof Safari Spa,
meals, spa treatments and extra curricular activities
can be organized to suit the needs of the guests.
"Timeless" is a way of life at Karkloof Safari Spa,
and the staff will help accommodate almost any request.

Do come and visit us very soon.
