Tenahead Lodge & Spa

by Media Xpose

Tenahead Lodge & Spa is situated very remotely, near the little town of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape. Nestled along the border of Lesotho, this 5-star country house is situated 2500m above sea level, earning it the title of “Highest Mountain Lodge in South Africa”. While the road to Tenahead is long and a little bumpy, there are plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the magnificent mountainous landscape. While you will not need a 4×4 to reach Tenahead, a high clearance vehicle is strongly advised. When you reach Tenahead, you will be transported to another world. This exclusive lodge is best described by their slogan – a heavenly place between sky and earth! 

Tenahead was built from layered stone found in the area. This architectural aspect allows for harmony with the rocky surroundings. The lodge is surrounded by endless mountains. The views are spectacular! In Summer, wildflowers grow naturally in the rugged terrain, and birding is a major attraction. You’ll be sure to meet their little “mascot”, the Drakensberg Rockjumper. Explore the great outdoors on one of their hiking trails. When they’ve had rain, the waterfalls are a beautiful sight. In Winter, the occasional snowfall turns Tenahead into a Winter Wonderland.

The 7 en-suite bedrooms provide the ultimate in comfort. A cosy fireplace will keep you warm, while the view from the large bedroom window will leave you feeling like you are one with the mountains. You’ll even be spoilt to these views from the bathroom. Expect a gourmet 5-course plated meal at dinner, and a mini buffet breakfast in the morning. Lunch is served from an a la carte menu. Add to your plush mountain experience and visit the on-site spa.

Day visitors are also very welcome at Tenahead Lodge & Spa! For queries and bookings, call 0861 748 374 or send a mail to reservations@riverhotels.com
