Sani Valley Lodge – Drakensberg
Sani Valley is an upmarket self-catering lodge that offers total privacy, refinement, tranquility and an extensive range of exciting activities. We are situated just 9 km from the quiet village of Himeville in the "Malaria Free" Southern Drakensberg. Game viewing on horseback, fly-fishing and a hike to the bushman paintings are just a few of the activities we offer. Our 4 star lodge has been rated as one of the most stunning destinations in South Africa. We have exclusive honeymoon lodges situated on the lake, with a tailored honeymoon package that will cater for all of your needs. We offer a full course breakfast overlooking our beautiful 260-acre lake, and delicious candle lit dinners served in the privacy of your own lodge. Watch the spectacular sunsets from your king-size bed or your "bath with a view". You can also relax in your Jacuzzi or have Spa treatments on your deck that overlook the magnificent Southern Drakensberg Escarpment. We assure you that moments like these will be remembered for a lifetime. There is an animal farm on the estate, which keeps the children entertained for hours. Sani Valley Lodge boasts the best wildlife in the area where you can walk or take a scenic horse ride with the zebras, wildebeest, eland, springbok and possibly even the very rare Serval. Rainbow lodge (also known as the family unit) is the largest at Sani Valley. The views from this chalet are simply breathtaking. It has 3 luxurious en-suite bedrooms that can easily accommodate up to 6 people. The entertainment area around the outside "boma", easy access to your own jetty and a play area for the children make this unit very special. Sani Valley Lodge is known as one of the premiere fly-fishing spots in the region, with our main dam having a record fish of just over 12 pounds. We have 2 other dams available to our guests, and if you are just starting out we offer fly-fishing lessons and a curio shop for all your basic needs. Rod and boat hire are also available. We promote catch and release but if you would like to keep a fish for the pot we will gladly prepare and cook it for you. Our dams are stocked each year with over 5000 fish from outside and we back this up with stock from our own hatchery. With no fence around Sunset Lodge you often wake up and find a herd of Red-Hartebeest or the horses grazing on your front lawn. Sunset lodge consists of 3 beautifully, decorated semi detached one-bedroom units. Each of these units have magnificent lake and mountain views with fully equipped kitchens and modern fixtures and fittings. There are many ways to explore the area with our 4x4, hiking or mountain bike trails. We also cater for weddings, functions and corporate events. Why not incorporate a bit of adventure into your holiday? The Famous Sani Pass is a spectacular 4x4 mountain road that is an awesome entry point into Lesotho where you can have lunch or just drink at the highest pub in Africa. Sani Valley Lodge is the ideal accommodation for both the adventurous type and the person that requires merely peace and tranquillity. Our Clubhouse is often used for smaller conferences and/or a central point for larger gatherings where a couple of families can enjoy enough space to dine together.
