Tucked away high in the Mont-Aux-Sources district of the Northern Drakensberg Mountains, above and between "the Cavern" and "Alpine Heath" resorts, midway between Durban and Johannesburg, Toplodge offers the ultimate luxurious getaway destination in a completely secluded mountain wildlife sanctuary in beautiful natural surroundings - the perfect mountain wilderness experience for adults and children alike.
Whilst the last 4 km of our access road are navigable only by OFFROAD 4X4 vehicles, for guests not travelling in an appropriate vehicle we offer free transfers from and to our neighbouring resort, Alpine Heath.
Our two stone-and-thatch self-catering cottages, each designed to comfortably accommodate four people, are charmingly appointed, beautifully comfortable. The ground floor of the cottages is open-plan comprising lounge and fireplace, bedroom area fitted with queen-size bed and adjacent bathroom with spacious shower and hand basin, separate toilet and kitchenette. The upstairs loft is fitted with two single beds, bathroom with toilet and basin, and built in-cupboard. This design concept provides spaciousness, and the warmth and enchantment of a fireplace in your own bedroom, making chilly winter nights a unique experience! Each cottage is electrified, fitted with fridge and deep freeze, microwave oven, hob, outdoor braai, and fully equipped with linen, bath towels, cutlery and kitchen utensils - everything our guests could possibly need to make their stay a unique and comfortable experience.
Toplodge offers unrivalled peace, tranquillity and relaxation, stunning views, superb on-site walks in unspoilt natural surroundings including large tracts of indigenous forest, and our own gorge cascading crystal clear spring water, rock carvings, angling, and a wide variety of indigenous fauna and flora - a "birder's" paradise. Above all, Toplodge offers an opportunity for children and adults alike to enjoy these unique surroundings in complete privacy, seclusion and comfort.
For those with "itchy feet", within easy reach are a number of outdoor activities to choose from, including golf, horse riding, angling, mountain-climbing in the Royal Natal National Park, quad-biking, abseiling and other adventure sports, as well as numerous restaurants, pubs and day-trips to a host of interesting places."
