Our 4 Star Platrand Lodge is in a malaria free area and 2 hours from Durban and 3 hours from Johannesburg. Established on the farm Fourie`s Kraal on the Southern boundaries of Ladysmith, Kwazulu-Natal.

Constructed in the style of the colonial era with long overhanging roofs and generous verandas, and set in an enchanting valley, Platrand Lodge has so much to offer: from luxury accommodation to conference and wedding facilities with impressive views and friendly service.

Activities at Platrand Lodge:
There are loads of activities to keep you occupied during your stay such as hunting (in season), mountain biking, a gym and swimming pool, tennis, fishing, hiking and much more.

Situated on the Ladysmith-Battlefields Route Kwazulu-Natal, one of the oldest, undisturbed battlefields in the world (Wagon Hill, Caesars Camp, Burgher Memorial, etc) is literally a stone throw away.

Game Hunting:
Our Lodge is situated in a malaria free area just 5 km south of Ladysmith on the N11. The farm is 3680 ha fully fenced consisting of 70% bushveld. Situated 14 km from the N3 just 2 hours from Durban and 3 hours from Johannesburg.
