Situated at the foot of the legendary Ghost Mountain near Mkuze, in picturesque Zululand, this privately owned country inn is the gateway to the cultural, historical and ecological wonders of northern KwaZulu Natal. Set in an extensive country garden dotted with enormous fig trees and private shady spots, Ghost Mountain Inn creates a sophisticated country ambience.

Explore the selection of nearby wildlife and coastal reserves. Look for the Big 5 in Hluhluwe Imfolozi, hike in Kozi Bay, go birding in Mkuhuze, or fishing on Lake Jozini. When you’re not out exploring, visit one of the pubs, relax in front of a log fire, or beside the swimming pool. Pamper yourself with a skin and body treatment at the health spa or unwind in the steam room.

  • Everything was fantastic - the staff were very professional, the manager was such a helpful person and the rooms and meals were all top class. Highly recommended.

  • One of the highlights, which we weren't expecting was at Ghost Mountain Inn where we did a lovely boat trip on Lake Jozini and also spent a lot of time in Mkhuze Reserve, where we self-drove and saw so much wildlife that it was a real treat.
