Only 3 hours from Johannesburg, Kilmorna Manor is set high up against the escarpment of Schoemanskloof in Mpumalanga. Kilmorna Manor offers a never to be forgotten experience, which includes gracious and opulent living in a serene and intimate setting. A five star Country House, malaria-free destination, Kilmorna Manor is ideal for the local and international guest who is looking for personal attention. Surrounded by natural beauty, tranquil gardens and unspoilt bush - relaxation and rejuvenation is complete.
Home to a wide variety of plant life from ancient gnarled trees to endangered cycads as well as fields of magnificent indigenous wild flowers. Sightings of soaring crowned eagles to darting brown hooded kingfishers are often seen. Take a gentle stroll through the grasslands, or for the more adventurous, a walk up the mountain paths for the most spectacular view of the Schoemanskloof Valley. And for those who just want to relax – enjoy a sundowner on the deck of the rim-flow pool and watch the zebra and impala graze a few metres away.
Continental and English breakfasts are served on the large patio overlooking the garden with dinners offered in the elegant wood-panelled dining room. Fine wines can be enjoyed before dinner in the old world English style pub, which features an Elizabethan style fireplace for those chilly evenings.
Six gracious bedrooms, each leading out into the lush sub-tropical garden, which is home to a wide variety of birdlife, including the elusive Narina Trogon. Knysna and purple crested Turaco and sunbirds grace the indigenous surrounding bush. Indigenous aloes line the stream flowing through the garden.
Be pampered in luxury and tranquillity, starting with a sundowner on the deck of the rim-flow pool surrounded by magnificent views of wide-open spaces. Walks are through the 600 hectare Greater Kilmorna Conservancy where you might just encounter zebra, eland, bushbuck, the indigenous red duiker or grey duiker in their natural unspoiled environment. Remember to take your binoculars for some exciting and rare bird spotting. For the more adventurous the Schoemanskloof area also offers quad bike trails, accredited hiking trails and walks along the Crocodile River, keep your eyes open for the resident hippos! The Manor is well situated for day expeditions in and around Mpumulanga including Kaapsehoop, Dullstroom and the Kruger National Park.
