Montusi Mountain Lodge is the perfect venue to host your special day! Your wedding party takes over the whole lodge and so every facility is available to make your day outstanding. The amazing mountain scenery provides a breath-taking backdrop for a time of togetherness. The lodge is set on 1000 hectares of private conservation estate, isolated, yet easily accessible by tar roads. The location, halfway between Durban and Jo-burg, makes it a very convenient meeting point for guests from across the country to gather in celebration of the start of your forever.
The lodge is comprised of a large thatched main building and sixteen individual suites which are scattered throughout the indigenous gardens. Wedding guests are accommodated on site making for an extended celebration: guests gather for pre-wedding chats and a lazy breakfast the morning after. This gives people the time to connect to each other and the couple a chance to get proper time with their guests. On site accommodation, also means there’s no stress about driving after the party, since taxis and Uber have yet to discover the Northern Drakensberg!
Outdoor ceremonies are held in the grounds or at the dam under the natural shade of our old trees or simple parasols. The lodge kitchen provides cuisine of extraordinary quality for both snacks and the wedding meal. Special requirements or restrictions are catered for with ease, by the experienced chefs.
The party can continue late into the night, because the nearest neighbours are kilometers away! Dancing into the wee hours is a great way to celebrate a union, and at Montusi there is no cut off time!

The owner-run attention to detail makes every event “our best one yet”. The staff and management team are always on hand to smooth away any hiccups.

The beauty of the unspoilt Northern Drakensberg permeates every Montusi wedding, making it the perfect start for every forever.

In May 2019, we were privileged enough to host our family and friends at the beautiful Montusi Mountain Lodge for our wedding. Words will never be able to express the natural beauty of the location that made planning our out of town wedding so easy. The staff, meals, drinks, rooms, hikes, to list but only a few items that made our wedding weekend beyond enjoyable for all of us.


The team at Montusi are the finest in industry and truly just the best people around. Nothing was too much effort and no detail was overlooked. Our wedding weekend was a celebration from start to end thanks to the team and care at Montusi. The warmth and welcomeness that Montusi carries left us and our guests wishing the weekend would never end.
Backed by a team of amazing people, always smiling and offering to assist, Montusi is a DREAM location.
