Natural beauty.Karkloof Falls 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 or Pretoria,
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.

Nyala ewes look on as visitors head off
to one of Nature's highlights at Karkloof Safari Spa

The walkway to the Falls was all constructed by hand.
Materials had to be carried in as there
was no room for motorised transport.
Every piece had to be cut and secured "in situ"
as manufacturing off site was not an option.
Vegetation clearance was kept to a minimum
and what was trimmed back has regrown.

The walk to the final destination is spectacular,
especially when the river is in full flow.
The walkway meanders alongside before "disappearing"
back into the shade of the foliage.

There are several "mini waterfalls"
along the way.
Guests are encouraged not to see the walk as a race,
but rather as a journey.
To enjoy the time to drink in the beauty
and the splendour of the gorge.

Getting closer...and the sound of the water is almost deafening

Karkloof Falls.
Could this be seen as the biggest outdoor shower on the property?
There is a viewing platform at the base of the falls,
in order for guests to enjoy the spectacle while feeling safe.

Spend time here while you contemplate what treatments
lie in store for you back at the Spa...
OR, just take time out to enjoy what Nature has to offer.

The walk back to your transport is all downhill.
Once again, enjoy the views and the vegetation.

Instead of heading straight back to the Lodge,
perhaps you would like to enjoy a picnic meal.
This can be easily arranged and
it is a great way to end off this "adventure".
Karkloof Safari Spa certainly has a variety
of natural beauty to offer the jaded urban visitor.
Take advantage and let Nature form part of your
revitalization package.

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.
Take the time to wander the property,
savouring what nature has to offer.
"Timeless" is a way of life at Karkloof Safari Spa,
and the staff will help accommodate almost any request.

Karkloof Safari Spa reservations manager, Lawrence,
was a guest on the "Travel & Things" radio show.
This is what he had to say...
(His interview starts about 16 minutes into the program)
