The Malachite Manor is a unique four-star luxury boutique lodge in the breathtaking beauty of the southern Drakensberg, just outside of Underberg. The area lies in the region “Barrier of Spears” uKhahlamba in the southern Drakensberg – affectionately called “The Mountain” – and has the World Heritage status because of its biodiversity as well as its cultural history.
The mansion was lovingly designed and handmade by the owner Mike Pieterse – with fine woods from the surrounding forests. The unique combination of traditional, modern and comfortable elements includes 6 spacious rooms with bath en suite, delicious food, a cozy bar with a fireplace for the colder mountain nights and a gallery library for lazy days. Malachite Manor is an ideal haven to escape the stress and bustle of city life. Mkhomazi Wilderness Area and the Underberg Country Club with its 18-hole golf course are also within 10 km.
Malachite Manor Room
The 6 spacious rooms at Malachite Manor are designed for all needs, from spacious bathrooms with a bath and shower to comfortable beds. Room amenities include flat-screen TVs, tea / coffee stations, and bar-fridges. All rooms have an outdoor terrace or balcony to enjoy the time, to enjoy the tranquility in the wonderful surroundings.
Malachite Manor restaurants
In the Manor Restaurant or in the courtyard you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, which you can pre-order the evening before. You can order dinner in the Manor Restaurant a la carte or enjoy dinner in the Speakeasy, the Boma and Bar, a few steps from the Manor House right on the lake, where you can meet the local people. Enjoy a selected South African wine from your own wine cellar with your dinner.
The focal point of the entrance area is the Manor Bar. The bar, handcrafted from fine local woods, offers you the opportunity to have an aperitif before dinner or a nightcap on the cold winter nights to enjoy the unique fireplace.
Malachite Manor activities
The southern Drakensberg Mountains are home to a wonderful selection of activities that you can experience during your stay. Hiking, bird watching, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing and cycling are just a few ways to experience and appreciate the abundance of the area’s natural beauty.
For those who want to use their time in southern Drakensbergen, we recommend a trip on the legendary SaniPass. The Malachite Manor is in close proximity to the Sani Pass – an exhilarating journey, whether in your own 4×4 vehicle or as a day trip with a local tour operator. With the highest pub in Africa at 3000m as soon as you reach the top, it’s a perfect place to enjoy lunch and regain your nerve for the journey back down!
The Malachite Manor House team will be happy to help you organize and book the tour.
