Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse , Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Dedicated to sumptuous food and rustic luxury, Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse has, over the last 10 years, earned global recognition as a delightful romantic gourmet getaway.
Perfect for anyone looking to break away from their fast-paced life, nestled in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal, and a true five-star lodge, Cleopatra’s 11 rooms are lovingly furnished in a ‘contemporary rustic’ style; but the real passion here is in the food.
Chef Richard Poynton turns the fruits of his land into exciting breakfasts and memorable feasts, ready to be walked off on a mid-morning hike in the Drakensberg Mountains.
Then, after a hard day of exploring the best of KZN, we can't think of a better way to reward yourself than with tea and chocolate cake by the crackling fire, relaxing with a book in the library and watching the weavers building nests outside. Or pour over the excellent choice of wines from the Lodge's own underground cellar and find the perfect pairing for your gourmet seven-course dinner.
