Toplodge is a self-catering destination, situated in the Northern Drakensberg, midway between Durban and Johannesburg. We are tucked away high in the mountains in the Mont-Aux-Sources district in beautiful natural surroundings - the perfect mountain wilderness experience offering the ultimate getaway destination in a completely secluded mountain wildlife sanctuary.
WHAT WE OFFER AT TOPLODGE
Unrivalled peace, tranquillity and relaxation, stunning views, superb on-site walks in unspoiled natural surroundings including large tracts of indigenous forest, and our own gorge cascading crystal clear spring water, rock carvings, fishing, and a wide variety of indigenous fauna and flora – a "birder's" paradise. Above all, Toplodge offers an opportunity for guests to enjoy these unique surroundings in complete privacy, seclusion and comfort.
Toplodge offers self-catering accommodation in our three unique cottages, Yellowwood (sleeps 4), Chestnut and Teakwood (each of which sleeps 2).
Our three luxury self-catering cottages are very private, charmingly appointed and beautifully comfortable, each with an open-plan ground floor comprising lounge and fireplace, bedroom area fitted with queen-size bed and adjacent bathroom with spacious shower and hand basin, separate toilet and kitchenette. Each cottage has a private expanse of lawn, covered verandah and braai facility, but each is unique in design and charm.
Due to its private, mountainous location, Toplodge is only accessible by off-road 4x4 vehicles.
However, transfers from our neighbouring resort will be happily made available free of charge, by prior arrangement.
Yellowwood can accommodate 4 guests. The cottage is double storey with a queen bed and bathroom downstairs, and an upstairs loft bedroom fitted with two single beds, bathroom with toilet and basin, and built in-cupboard.
Chestnut is the newest addition to the family. It can accommodate 2 guests and is in a league of its own, with an upstairs "sky deck" and an open-air his and hers shower that has unobstructed views of the valley. Downstairs is a queen bed, fireplace, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. This one is an absolute must.
Teakwood cottage was built as our honeymoon suite. It is a charming one storey cottage that can accommodate 2 guests and enjoy complete privacy with 270 degree views from bedroom, lounge and a covered verandah with a built-in braai.
The design concept for all three cottages provides spaciousness, and the warmth and enchantment of a fireplace in your own bedroom, making chilly winter nights a unique experience! Each cottage is electrified, fitted with fridge and deep freeze, microwave oven, hob, outdoor braai, and fully equipped with linen, bath towels, cutlery and kitchen utensils – everything our guests could possibly need to make their stay a unique and comfortable experience.
