Spionkop Lodge is fortunate to be situated in the shadows of one of the most famous and bloody wars in South African history. Relive the memories and walk in the footsteps of three great leaders, Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi and Gen. Louis Botha.

Situated on an expansive 700 hectare game farm, SpionKop Lodge is the perfect base for exploring the berg, bush, birds, and battlefields of the region. The lodge offers visitors an awesome sense of space and beauty, supreme comfort and warm hospitality.

The turn of the century farmhouse has been beautifully restored in Natal colonial style. The converted barn now forms the magnificent dining room that boasts spectacular views. Guests can savour fine cuisine and excellent service whilst appreciating the African landscape and battlefield.

The business fraternity has the opportunity to gather at the Lodge's modern, well appointed conference centre. Whilst happy couples can be guaranteed of an unforgettable Wedding Day by tying the knot at a really special venue.

Colonial style chalets are located in the park-like grounds, each individually furnished and appointed to offer luxury en-suite accommodation in an out-of-Africa setting. Guests are offered the choice of full board or self-catering facilities.

Cool down in the natural rock pool surrounded by water features, enjoy a quiet drink at the pub or spend time in the historic library with its extraordinary collection of war books. There are a multitude of activities on offer.

Latest Reviews
We had a great time at Spionkop Lodge. It's a place where you feel you can stay for a good stretch of time to have your soul re-connect to nature. We unfortunately had only booked for 2 nights. Alastair took us on the Spionkop battlefield tour, which was super interesting. They also arranged for my daughter and I to go on a 2 hour horse ride through an adjoining game reserve. We came amazingly close to Rhino and Giraffe, which was fantastic. The staff at Spionkop are friendly and helpful, and know the meaning of customer service.
