Rockwood Karkloof Nature Reserve

Karkloof Nature Reserve, Howick, Kwa-Zulu Natal

About

Escape to the indigenous forests of the private Karkloof Nature Reserve and the fertile plains of Spitzkop Farm (Howick, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa) where you will find four unique, equally luxurious, self-catering lodges that make up the Rockwood acommodation collection.

Create your own outdoor adventure at Rockwood and choose to do as much or as little as you wish. Enjoy nature and the peace of the Midlands.

Relax in one of the 4 private lodges.

Rockwood Forest Lodge

Rockwood Forest Lodge is a unique 3 bedroomed, 3 bathroomed double-storey wooden structure, on the River, nestled deep within the indigenous bush of the Karkloof Nature Reserve. This is the perfect environment for families to enjoy the remoteness whilst not foregoing any of life's luxuries. The Lodge is idyllic at any time of the year - cuddle up in front of the roaring fireplace in Winter or splash in the cool stream below the deck in Summer. Take pleasure in the knowledge that your only disturbance will be birds and bushbuck, as there is limited cell phone coverage!

Rockwood Mountain Lodge

Rockwood Mountain Lodge is a 3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed wooden cottage perched on top of the Mountain at the edge of the indigenous forest of the Karkloof Nature Reserve. Remotely settled within a natural clearing, families can explore the various hiking paths on foot or mountain bike or enjoy a spot of birding from the privacy of your own entertainment deck. With no TV, this lodge is peaceful, although cell phone coverage is just good enough to make that call to your mates to turn them green with envy! For the adventurous, the popular Karkloof Canopy Tours is a mere 7 minute drive away.

Rockwood Farm Cottage

Rockwood Farm Cottage is a 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed cosy getaway. Ideal for the smaller family or a couple seeking a romantic weekend. It's perfectly positioned to use as a base to explore the Midlands Meander. Drink in majestic views of mountain, farm, forest and dam. Children will enjoy the proximity of the jungle gym and trampoline area.

Rockwood Farm House

Rockwood Farm House is a 4 bedroomed, 3.5 bathroomed luxurious, contemporary, spacious home where you can relax and unwind. The lodge let's the sights and sounds of nature in through large frameless glass doors. The property is close enough for a quick drive into the town of Howick, but far enough to escape it all; rustic enough to give you that old farmhouse feel, but absolutely modern in its amenities. Parents can relax on comfy sun loungers while the kids splash in the dam or play in the beautifully landscaped country garden. Unwind in front of fireplaces while the little ones indulge in ping-pong and games in the attic! The private Karkloof Nature Reserve is a short drive away. Feel free to explore the weirs, dams, birds, fish, hike or mountain bike.
