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.


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.

The 5 acres of verdant rolling gardens stretch down to the water on the boundary of the property. All new planting is indigenous and we are slowly removing the remaining exotics, in order to keep the garden as indigenous as possible. The flourishing old trees and succulent fruit attract many species of birdlife, for which Mkuze is well known, and the garden also features a bird hide and jetty for both birding and relaxing.


The hotel offers three pools. The larger of the two is situated in the bottom garden in front of the new Mountain View rooms where the second smaller pool is in the garden in front of the hotel, both surrounded by umbrellas and loungers.  We also have a rock pool in a more secluded area of the Spa, offering a truly unique experience.


Comfortable airy lounge areas with fireplaces for the chilly winter months, as well as complimentary wireless internet, are available for all guests to take pleasure in. Open all day, our gift shop offers a variety of curios, from beaded artefacts and carvings to Nguni cow hides and clothing. The gift shop can be found in the reception area and also offers toiletries and other sundries you may have left at home.


Seasonal Menus offering the freshest local ingredients combined with traditional favourites are served in the Dining Room, outdoors on the terrace or under the warm African sky in our traditional Boma.
