Toplodge is 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. Toplodge is accessible only by off-road 4X4 vehicle, or by pre-arranged transfers from our neighbouring resort, free of charge.

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:-

"Yellowwood" cottage can accommodate 4 guests with an additional upstairs loft bedroom fitted with two single beds, bathroom with toilet and basin, and built in-cupboard;

“Chestnut” cottage 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;

“Teakwood” cottage can accommodate 2 guests and enjoys complete privacy with 270 degree views from bedroom, lounge and covered verandah with 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.

Toplodge offers unrivalled peace, tranquility 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, angling, 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.

For those with "itchy feet", within easy reach are a number of outdoor activities to choose from, including golf, horse riding, angling, mountain-climbing in the Royal Natal National Park, quad-biking, zip-lining and other adventure sports, as well as numerous restaurants, pubs and day-trips to a host of interesting places.
