January 23, 2018

Nestled away in the wonderful UKlahlamba Drakensberg mountain selection in the Kamberg Valley in the vicinity of Giant’s Castle, you are going to uncover Cleopatras Mountain Farmhouse. This distinctive Gourmand mountain lodge is two hundred km from Durban airport and 450 km from Johannesburg international airport. I drove down from Johannesburg and the trip took me around 5 several hours along the N3 toll highway before coming off at Mooi River. From there, it is no more than 30 miles and despite the fact that the instructions had been very good, it is advisable to have out this component of the generate by daylight to make it easier to see the landmarks that are described in the directions.

In the extended operate, I arrived but as it was darkish, I was not in a position to wholly enjoy the elegance of its location right up until the up coming day. I experienced also confirmed up far way too late for the 6 course night meal which was a pity. There are eleven suites at Cleopatras and each and every one is exclusive. Drakensberg activities was checked into area two, the Scandinavian area and it was remarkable and very roomy. It had been a prolonged working day so I before long obtained into my mattress that was warmed by an electric blanket and went to slumber.

I got up early as I experienced a prolonged push to the Zulu Battlefields in advance of me but initial I desired to have a search round. The early morning mist hung over the encircling mountains and I could properly see specifically what a stunning spot it was. I created my way to the breakfast place the place a great 3 training course meal was dished up to set me up properly for the working day. The chef at Cleopatras results in his foods with flavour as his major intention and I had to say that I was not dissatisfied. In reality, I never recall the very last time I was dished up this kind of a good breakfast.
