Karkloof Safari Spa

Karkloof Safari Spa is a natural sanctuary situated on a 3500 hectare game farm, just 30 minutes from Pietermaritzburg. As the name suggests, Karkloof offers both a luxury safari and a leading African spa destination for discerning travellers who wish to discover Africa’s very first 7-star property. The spa with its world class hydrotherapy facilities and 17 well-appointed treatment rooms offers a variety of packages to fit your preferences.

The 16 lavish villas at Karkloof Safari Spa offer all the details to make your stay remarkably comfortable – from 1000 thread count percale linen sheets and heated towel rails to a private deck or Swarovski crystal chandeliers. At Karkloof Safari Spa, you are enfolded in an old-world colonial feel with contemporary accents that blend in seamlessly with the gorgeous natural setting.

At Karkloof Safari Spa, guests can tailor make their experience completely – every meal, safari or pampering spa treatment can be arranged at your whim. Take leisurely strolls along the wooden walkways, paths or trails that weave through thorn thickets or go mountain biking into the mist-belt forest. All food is freshly prepared with organic produce from local farms and can be made to fit any dietary preference.

You cannot but enjoy the incredible service and luxury of Karkloof. Of all the hotels and lodges we have stayed in around the world, Karkloof has without doubt the highest level of service I have ever experienced. Top class meals when you want, Spa experiences any time of the day or night, and relaxing surroundings!
