In a secluded region in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, you will find a secret gem - Tenahead Mountain Lodge
. Nestled along the border of Lesotho, this spectacular 5-star lodge is situated 2500 metres above sea level and is surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of the Drakensberg, Witteberg and Maluti Mountains. The hand of man has brushed it but lightly, beautiful San rock art being the only sign of its former inhabitants. The lodge itself was built largely from natural materials found in the area; the beautiful layered stone lodge fits so perfectly into its environment.
Inside the lodge you will find elegantly decorated, cosy, spacious living areas. In chilly weather, dine alongside a toasty fireplace. The 7 en-suite bedrooms provide the ultimate mountain luxury experience.Accommodation at Tenahead Mountain Lodge
The lodge boasts 7 spacious, luxury bedrooms that can be converted from king to twin beds, if necessary. The view from the rooms is awe-inspiring - rivers and mountains so close that you feel as one with nature. In the snowy season, snuggle up next to a warm fireplace or gas heater, or run a steamy bubble bath in the Victorian bath tub.
Rooms are equipped with fireplace, gas heater, safety deposit box, mini bar, tea/coffee station, TV with selected DSTV channels, en-suite bathroom with shower, bath and toilet, with a range of luxury amenities.Facilities and Services

Shauna and Nolin are splendid at what they do and always try their utmost to make you feel welcome. Compliments to the chef. The lodge has a nice relaxed feel to it and I would recommend it to anyone who loves peace,quiet and nature.
