Karkloof Safari Spa, Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Could this be one of South Africa’s most chilled-out safari destinations? ​Well with no fixed schedule, unlimited spa treatments, private game drives and all-inclusive dining at any time, we think it's well on its way!

If you're looking for the perfect blend of world-class facilities, luxurious comforts and an authentically-African safari experience, Karkloof could be just the ticket.

Not just an hotel, this is a destination spa with a difference: one of vast spaces and intimate exclusivity and conveniently located in the heart of a game reserve that's home to an abundance of wildlife, waterfalls and over 300 different species of birdlife.

Just 16 private, individually-decorated villas each have their own hiding place amongst the verdant trees, filled with style, comfort, space and every creature comfort from air-con to underfloor heating and that all-important private viewing deck overlooking the valley below. ​
