KARKLOOF SPA

By Chris Boyle

Karkloof Spa

Karkloof Spa is a five-star Wellness & Wildlife Retreat situated in a haven where exhilaration and rejuvenation go hand in hand.

A pristine piece of paradise where nature reigns supreme, Karkloof Spa is in a league of its own. This 3,500-hectare, malariafree sanctuary is cocooned in the Karkloof Valley, with breathtaking views of indigenous mist-belt forests and overgrown thickets, savannah plains, riverine valleys, crystal-clear waterfalls and expansive dams.

From the moment you arrive, wildlife abounds all around, with white and black rhino grazing lazily as herds of wildebeest, giraffe, zebra and Nyala roam free in a wellprotected and conserved environment.

Unique in its approach, Karkloof Spa offers you the privilege of time and choice. From indulging in spa treatments to going on game drives, you set your schedule, as time is exclusively yours. With early check-in from 8am and late check-out until 8pm, time is yours to indulge and relax, whether you opt in to a bevy of activities from mountain biking to fishing, yoga to tai chi, take full advantage of the unlimited spa treatments, or simply lounge by the outdoor pool reading a book from the library.
