Welcome to Sani Valley Lodge - A unique blend of luxury, nature and activities! Sani Valley Lodge is a private nature lodge only 2 hours from Durban. It sits within the dramatic Drakensberg mountain range, borders a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the closest luxury lodge to the famous Sani Pass.
The reserve has a very limited number of secluded luxury lodges designed to accommodate couples, families and small groups, all with the choice of full/self catering. Within the valley sits one of the largest privately owned lakes in South Africa. The lodges are scattered on the edge of the lake which is surrounded by a variety of antelope, zebra, baboons and other wildlife. This is one of the very few animal reserves in the Drakensberg, further enhanced by the vast lake which attracts unparalleled birdlife. The fishing is well renowned with regional records being attributed to the size of the lake.
The low number of secluded lodges makes Sani Valley feel like your very own private holiday home and is the perfect place to relax and have fun. One can indulge in a massage, be taught how to fly fish, go otter spotting by canoe, lounge in the Jacuzzi, be taken game viewing on horse back, drive a 4X4 up the famous Sani Pass, hike to the Bushmen paintings and more.
Come visit. It's an experience you'll never forget!
Experience the privacy and luxury of individually designed and decorated lodges situated on the lake side, surrounded by game, bird life and the picturesque mountains. Luxury crisp fabrics, hand-embroideries, cotton linen, hand-painted lithographs and marble finishes are just a few of the details that complement the beauty and the tranquillity of the area.
The five different set ups of lodge’s offer spacious open plan lounge/dining room/fully equipped kitchen areas. Large glass sliding doors open from the lounge and bedrooms onto private wooden decked areas seamlessly inviting you out to enjoy the fresh mountain air and surround nature and views.
Whether you are looking for full or semi-catered Drakensberg accommodation Sani Valley’s lodges provide a warm atmospheric homely, private and personal experience with daily housekeeping and a variety of lodge services. In winter you can enjoy the comfort of a cosy fireplace in the lounge, electric blankets, overhead heating along with heated towel rails in the bathrooms.

Sani Valley do an awesome South African breakfast served down at the Clubhouse on the water’s edge. Fresh trout out of the lake is a popular request at certain times of the year, and in Winter a wholesome meal of Oxtail stew sitting in your lodge in front of a cosy fire is very popular. All of these are put together for you in the privacy of your own lodge to help you enjoy the Sani Valley experience.

Spa treatments on your deck overlooking the Southern Drakensberg Escarpment watching your partner sip champagne in the Jacuzzi is a honeymoon moment which is very hard to beat! We make honeymoon packages tailored to each individual couple.
