Welcome to a brand new Blog.
Say "HELLO" to Karkloof Safari Spa in Kwazulu Natal.
This stunning property is situated a mere 40 minute drive from Pietermaritzburg.
Should you wish to fly in from Johannesburg,
Airlink will get you to Oribi Airport in under an hour.
It is also only 120km from Durban.
Over the coming weeks and months YOU, the reader
will get to know what is on offer,
from the luxurious Villas to the fine dining food.
Not forgetting the Spa and the game drives!
This is just a "teaser" for the weekly posting that will follow.
This is one of the 16 individually decorated Villas at Karkloof Safari Spa.
Although the physical layout of each is similar,
the decor could not be more different.
The muted colours, soft furnishings add to the relaxation of the guests.
Not forgetting the stocked mini-bar and luxury tea and coffee station in each.
The "timeless" nature of the activities and meals
allows guests to take full advantage of this breathtaking accommodation.
This is just one of the views that the Villas look out over.
Each has its own covered deck, where guests can take full advantage
of the "timeless" aspect of this "one-of-a-kind" Spa.
Careful placement of the accommodation means that each Villa
gives the occupants privacy,
as well as an individual view of the surrounding landscape
Food is prepared by Chef Brett and his team.
All meals can be enjoyed in the dining area at the main Lodge building.
Or at the Bistro at the Spa...or in-room, if guests want some privacy.
All meals offer a vegetarian option, but meals can be individually
composed to suit specific dietary requirements.
Here the "timeless" nature of Karkloof is exercised to the full.
Normally when on a holiday, the property has set meals times,
and these do NOT always suit the guests.
As there are no set times for any of the meals,
guests can structure their day around their needs!
The Spa opens at 08h00 and with 17 treatment rooms,
and a similar number of Thai therapists on duty,
there is no reason to have to book treatments days in advance.
A visit to the Spa reception will allow you to choose treatments immediately.
For those guests on the Karkloof signature package, all the treatments are included.
And don't forget to head out on a game drive.
Again, you can choose a time that suits you!
Karkloof Safari Spa has both Rhino as well as Buffalo.
The property is also home to a variety of plains game,
and the main dam even has a pod of Hippo.
Feel like a picnic while on your drive?
That can be arranged.
Do come and visit us very soon.
