Welcome to Qambathi 

boutique lodge - only 5 suites

We are an owner run adult only 4 star boutique lodge and nature reserve nestled in the heart of Kamberg Valley, Drakensberg, part of the beautiful Midlands Meander. 

Qambathi has a magical atmosphere and it is a truly romantic setting surrounded by Drakensberg mountains and valleys.  Excellent service supports the superb cuisine and is sure to turn any day into a fairytale experience. Great care has been taken to create unique and inspiring luxury accommodation, where you can sink into total comfort of meticulously designed rooms defined by a blend of nature's colours and contemporary use of natural materials with luscious textures.

A total of only five suites makes Qambathi a very personal and stress free oasis. The garden rooms have their own private decks with hanging chairs overlooking the gardens and mountain. The Chill Lounge and Pool Deck area offer panoramic views, ideal to enjoy a late afternoon sundowner or to simply relax in the sun.

Enjoy the Qambathi forest trail taking you deep into one of the last remaining indigenous forests in the Kamberg valley or a casual walk on the existing game trails to enjoy the beautiful views where zebra and  blesbok keep you company. 

Qambathi can accommodate up to 10 guests, and is perfect for a small groups such as family reunions, company retreats, or just  friends getting together. Please contact us to book Qambathi exclusively.
