Self-Catering Lodge Dullstroom
Within 15 minutes of the (relative) hustle and bustle of Dullstroom village, Amberley Mountain Reserve provides you with the unique experience of complete privacy and seclusion without being remote. Enjoy all that the 900 ha of the estate has to offer.
ON THE ESTATE
Hiking, Biking, Walking
Guests have the entire estate to themselves and can explore the estate at leisure either on foot or bike. The estate is home to a variety of wild plains game.
Guests have exclusive use of the lodge swimming pool.
Sorry no pets
Regrettably, pets cannot be accommodated. This is as much for your pets safety as it is for our animals. The lodge is open to the plains where large herds graze.
There are six dams and a weir available for guests to fish. Four of these dams and the weir are located within walking distance of the lodge and two large dams on the north western side of the estate that can be accessed by 4x4 vehicles.
The Lodge housekeeper's primary function is to ensure a restful stay. The Lodge is serviced daily with the housekeeper cleaning, making up the bedrooms, resetting the fires and helping with kitchen duties.
Cell signal - and (no) Wi-Fi
Being in the country, Amberley does not have the option of being on a Wi-Fi network. Vodacom cell signal (voice and data) is very strong - and fast (we easily download movies and conduct video meetings) on our cell network. Using your own cell contract, you too should have good connectivity.
Self-catering - or not
A fully equipped kitchen is available in the lodge. Catered meals are available on request.
