Boutique Nature lodge | only 5 Rooms | Private Nature Reserve | Adults Only | 4 Star | fully catered | Offgrid  

Welcome to Qambathi Boutique Nature Lodge, an exquisite retreat nestled in the heart of the Kamberg Valley in Drakensberg. Our intimate lodge, boasting only five rooms, is set within a private nature reserve, offering a tranquil haven for adults seeking a luxurious escape.


As an owner-run establishment, we take pride in curating an exclusive experience for our esteemed guests. Qambathi is a 4-star gem, fully catered to ensure your every need is met. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our off-grid status, with the recent addition of our own solar farm, making us immune to the inconvenience of load-shedding.

Having had the pleasure of hosting the illustrious Tom Cruise for a few months in 2022, we invite you to read about this extraordinary experience on our website.

The enchanting ambiance of Qambathi is set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Drakensberg mountains and valleys, creating a truly romantic atmosphere. Impeccable service complements our superb cuisine, transforming each day into a fairytale. Our meticulously designed rooms harmonize nature's hues with contemporary use of natural materials and luxurious textures, ensuring a stay of unparalleled comfort.

With a limited number of only five suites, Qambathi ensures a personalized and stress-free oasis. The garden rooms feature private decks with hanging chairs, providing idyllic views of the gardens and mountains. The Chill Lounge and Pool Deck area offer panoramic views, perfect for indulging in a late afternoon sundowner or simply basking in the sun.

Embark on the Qambathi forest trail, guiding you through one of the last remaining indigenous forests in the Kamberg Valley. Alternatively, take a leisurely stroll along the existing game trails, enjoying stunning vistas while accompanied by zebra and blesbok.


Whether you seek a romantic getaway, a family reunion, a company retreat, or a gathering of friends, Qambathi can accommodate up to 10 guests. We invite you to immerse yourself in the serenity and beauty of our nature lodge, where every moment is crafted to perfection.

Warm regards, Nadia and Stephen
