"My mom and I had an absolutely magical time at this gem of the Drakensberg. I was not sure what to expect, but we were both blown away. The management and staff are great, the view spectacular, and the accommodation was something out of a dream. We were planning our next visit before we even left. A definite MUST for anyone seeking relaxation and/or adventure."

"The best tree house in the Berg"

By Anna, South Africa
"We have spent our honeymoon at the Bahati tree lodge, and there certainly is no place on earth as remote, tranquil and magical. Bahati is tastefully decorated and equipped with all the necessities you might possibly need for a luxurious yet close to nature self-catering getaway. Nothing beats breakfast on the deck overlooking the dam and the mountains, or an icy amarula after a long hike, with an epic thunderstorm rolling over the hills. Pine trees not only surround Bahati (keeping the view clear at all times), but also grow right through it in wonderful glass cages - it is fascinating to watch the trees sway when the wind is strong! We loved it, and we'll be back."
"Breathtaking Views"

"What a lovely place and a good break away from the city. We didn't get to go on the trails as there we're so many activities close by. The views from the tree house were nothing short of breathtaking. The house was clean and very neat. The house was also well equipped with everything you could need. I will definitely make use of Treks, Trips and Trails the next time I'm in the Drakensberg."
"Excellent hospitality and beautiful surroundings"

"Magda took care of us and provided us with everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing weekend away from the city.After the sky cleared up from the morning rain we embarked on a 15km hike around the property. The lush vegetation and occasional cows provided the perfect scenery for a quiet walk over a small river and past the dam. We returned to our cabin, feeling hot and tired, to savour the cool water of the rock pool. Having cooled off sufficiently, we spent the rest of the evening in front of a warm fire in the privacy of our cabin.Highly recommended, and we will definitely visit again!"

"Such a lovely few days in the wooden tree house. We've stayed in may places but never had such a stunning view and the cottage itself had everything we needed and more. If I'm ever this part of the world I would stay here again."

"Excellent accommodation. Everything you need, housekeeping everyday and lots of fresh towels. View was amazing from the treehouse. Cosy log fire in the evening. Chris was very helpful in giving us a map and information on the surroundings which helped us plan our stay. Very enjoyable and relaxing. Would not hesitate to recommend this property."
