Just over a hundred years ago during the Anglo - Boer War 1899 -1902, General, Sir Redvers Buller set up his headquarters on Mount Alice, on the very farm on which Raymond and Lynette Heron established Spion Kop Lodge. The homestead has been restored in beautiful, tranquil, secure grounds and transformed into a colonial-style lodge.

With a conference centre, cosy pub, bistro and library, with an excellent collection historic books. A beautiful swimming pool is available to cool you down, as you watch the spectacular sunsets.

We offer trips to the Battlefields, where Raymond will bring the history alive, with his ability and passion as a raconteur. Other activities: birding (274 species); sunset & sunrise boat cruises; game drives, canoeing, white water rafting; horse riding amongst the game in the reserve. Trips to the Drakensberg Boys' Choir, recitals. Tours to the Bushmen caves and paintings. Trips to the falconry birds of prey display. Hiking trips into the Drakensberg Mountains.

Close to the N3 motorway, linking Durban and Johannesburg .
