One of the Southern Drakensberg's best kept secrets, the gateway to Sani Pass, Mkomazana Mountain Cottages lies snugly at the foot of the Sani Pass, within a magnificent World Heritage Site. Just 8km from the South African border to Lesotho, Mkomazana exudes old-world, rustic charm from its days as a bustling trading post in the 1800’s.


Surrounded by the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, the Mkomazana River and two dams on the property, the cottages are a paradise for nature lovers. You are sure to see reedbuck and eland on our walking and hiking trails or spot an extraordinary range of birdlife including the majestic Black Eagle and the Bearded Vulture, Barrett’s Warbler, and Fairy Flycatcher.


Recharge your batteries in the fresh mountain air, get lost in your thoughts while trout fishing, explore the mountains, visit the highest pub in Africa in Lesotho (you’ll need your passport) or experience the area’s remarkable historical attractions. There is something for everyone at Mkomazana!
