EXPLORE THE SPIRIT OF ZULULAND

At the foot of the legendary Ghost Mountain in Mkuze, Northern KwaZulu-Natal lies the enchanting Ghost Mountain Inn. A tale of family, history and an innate love for Africa, this intimate and award-winning hotel is the ideal location from which to explore the game and coastal reserves of Zululand and the Elephant Coast. From the inevitable romance with Lake Jozini to the remarkable scenery of the Lebombo mountains, from the wildlife of uMkhuze Game Reserves and the heritage of the Zulu culture to the tranquility found at the spa, Ghost Mountain Inn promises an experience beyond compare.

THE LEGEND OF GHOST MOUNTAIN

HERITAGE

FAMILY RUN & OWNED SINCE 1962

decoration-1

In the early 1960’s more and more travellers were venturing up into Zululand. The road, which in the mid 1970’s became the N2, was a long dusty road and accommodation facilities were sparse. The closest hotels to Mkuze were the Siselana hotel in Hluhluwe, 50km south and the Golela hotel on the border of Swaziland. Maureen and Roy Rutherfoord had an increasing number of guests staying at their family home. While they enjoyed having fresh stories from the big cities and meeting new interesting people, they eventually decided to open a hotel in Mkuze and in October 1962, the Ghost Mountain Inn opened its doors. Since then the hotel has changed a lot, but we still offer the same warm Zululand welcome. We invite you to join us for an authentic Zululand experience.

Rhino surprise – by Adam Snyman

What seemed to me and to be just a full day game drive safari for the day, out on a reserve I’ve never been to, turned out to be a lifetime experience. Only once I got back to Ghost Mountain did I find out that Jean set me up but what a setup it was. […]
