Three Trees At Spioenkop
An eco-friendly 18-bed lodge, Three Trees at Spioenkop (also known as Three Tree Hill Lodge) offers magnificent scenery and warm hospitality managed by hosts Simon and Cheryl Blackburn. The lodge itself is an elegant affair, exuding laid-back colonial style. Guests dine communally (unless otherwise requested) in the atmospheric dining room with post-prandial port and cognac on the veranda under an immense starry sky.
Each of the guestrooms sports a private deck which offer unsurpassed views of the game-rich valley below and Spioenkop peak towering over the reserve. For honeymooners or families with teenagers, we recommend Churchills, the estate’s stand-alone villa with its own game-viewing deck.
This is a place that cares for its roots and the local surroundings. Three Trees employs local Zulu staff from the nearby Hambrook Village and there is a feeling of family that pervades which is enjoyed by many guests.
Close to the base of Van Reenens pass, the lodge is also the ideal half-way stop between Johannesburg & Durban. This lodge is the perfect location to base yourself for exploring the major Anglo-Boer War Battlefields in KwaZulu Natal, the Northern Drakensberg Mountains (world heritage site), and within two hours reach of the Anglo-Zulu War Battlefields (Battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift).
