Guest Reviews of Karkloof Safari Spa


Kaarkloof Safari Spa was a lucky find! environment is classy, clean, elegant, luxurious and wonderfully self indulgent. Peacefully, cosy a perfect treat if you need to pamper yourself and get away from it all. Nice touch of intimacy from personal interaction with the property owner and generally friendly staff. A sensuous treat for all senses: sounds of waterfalls, musical tinkling of water and birds; Smells of cleansing and healing aromatherapy; Tastes buds are tantalised with cuisine including health options; Sight - with amazing views, a great library to loose yourself in; Touch - with endless massages for tired achy muscles, delicious roman bath waters on your skin, sauna etc etc. Must do again!

Karkloof is a very peaceful beautiful place in the Kwa Zulu Natal provence of South Africa The rooms are lodges scattered around a very large world class spa deep in the the bush. The quality of the spa treatments is excellent Imagine coming out of a treatment and wondering into a herd of beautiful buck or viewing a rhino or giraffe on the way back to your room. Each lodge has a very high standard of accomodation with a spacious bedroom and separate lounge. The main lodge is where the dining is either indoor with a roaring fireoutside around the pool The Karkloof waterfall is magnificent

Karkloof’s flexible approach to meals and activities makes it easy for everyone to enjoy what they have to offer at a pace that suits them. Without the need to be punctual, the experience is much more relaxing. The essence of Karkloof is 'timelessness', so there are not set times for meals and activities - you are at liberty to do what you want when you want. 

Situated within a scenic 3,500 hectare game reserve in the region of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Karkloof combines the therapeutic treatments of Africa’s largest spa with an unforgettable safari experience. Though it is less than 30 kilometres from the city of Pietermaritzburg, this retreat offers a chance to encounter stunning wildlife, including zebras; giraffes; black and white rhinos; hippos; over three hundred different species of bird; and more. In the surrounding area, you can also enjoy dramatic cliffs, lush valleys, and magnificent waterfalls.

During your stay at Karkloof, you can do more than just enjoy nutritious cuisine in the lodge dining room or the spa’s Greens & Teas Café. There are no scheduled meal times, so whether you prefer to savour delectable organic food in your villa, on the deck areas, or on a picnic, you are free to do so at your own leisure. The menu includes gourmet raw options along with locally-flavoured food for a well-rounded set of healthy diet possibilities. 

Dining Room
You may wish to join the other guests in the dining room for your meal. The ambiance is lively, in the winter there's a large fire and in summer the doors are flung open.
