Malachite Manor is a real labour of love, having been built by Carrin and Michael themselves. The warm wood floors, beautiful Pin Oak, Cypress and Kiaat bar, headboards…all have been lovingly hand crafted by Michael. Sipping a welcome cappuccino next to the double volume windows and unique fireplace, I only wish I’d stayed for dinner…they offer one of only a few restaurants in the area.

ABOUT Malachite Manor

Nestled in the Southern Drakensberg, part of the beautiful uKhahlamba World Heritage Site, you’ll find the small piece of paradise that is Malachite Manor. Its close proximity to the famous Sani Pass makes it ideal for those wishing to explore the Underberg region, or just simply to escape the madness of the city.

The gentle hillside setting features a small picturesque dam and mature plane trees, oaks and maples surround the manor house. Six spacious rooms are tastefully decorated, with warm, hand-crafted wood, crisp percale linen, Dstv, WiFi, bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, patio or balcony.

Delicious breakfasts are enjoyed in the Orchid dining room or al fresco in the courtyard in warmer weather. Malachite prides itself on flavoursome dinners with an Austrian flair or a taste of exotic Thai. Enjoy snacks and sundowners at the handcrafted wooden bar, or a nightcap around the unique fireplace.

The area is an outdoor adventurist’s playground, from mountain biking to golfing, tubing, kayaking, horse riding, hiking and fly-fishing. An exhilarating drive up Sani Pass to the highest pub in Africa is a highlight.

Free WiFi throughout | Children 13 + welcome
