If it’s legendary food, spectacular scenery and tranquillity you’re after, then Cleopatra is for you. Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse has earned global renown as a romantic gourmet getaway under Richard and Mouse Poynton.

Nestled in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg, this gourmet lodge is dedicated to sumptuous food and a rustic but stylish ambience, with a warm and friendly welcome from the moment you arrive at this idyllic mountain farmhouse. With just twelve unique rooms, and a two-bedroom self-cater cottage nearby, it is a haven for guests seeking to break away from their fast-paced life to enjoy mountain walks, roaring log fires, seven-course dinners and endless relaxation and pampering. Mouse has created the ideal environment for relaxation, with many artefacts to interest and amuse, and the new Copper Pot Spa for rejuvenating treatments. Creatively themed and decorated rooms and suites feature welcome fireplaces and countless special touches.
