Our Useful Features & Services

Situated in the indigenous forest of the Karkloof Nature Reserve, we offer luxury self-catering accommodation in a unique environment. Currently, there are two 6-sleeper luxury lodges within the Reserve, Rockwood Forest Lodge and Rockwood Mountain Lodge. Each unit comprises 3 bedrooms (1 king and 2 twin rooms), has 2-3 bathrooms, a fully equipped self-catering kitchen and dining/lounge area with a large viewing deck. Adjacent to the reserve, on a typical Midlands farm, are Rockwood Farm Cottage and Rockwood Farm House. Both these units allow our guests to have an authentic farm experience and get away from it all, whilst still being within an easy drive from the town of Howick. Rockwood Farm Cottage is ideal for a family of 4 with 1 king and 1 twin room, whilst Rockwood Farm House is best suited for a larger family of up to 8 people, comprising 1 king and 3 twin rooms.

Linen, complimentary toiletries, towels as well as a starter pack of basic condiments are provided.

Activities within the private nature reserve include, self-guided hiking and mountain biking trails, fishing, birding and the popular Karkloof Canopy Tours for which our guests qualify for a 10% discount.

Winner of the Top Self-Catering Establishment in South Africa award as voted by Getaway magazine (2007) and AA Finalist (2010 and 2011), our valued guests just keep coming back for more!

Please note: Rockwood Forest Lodge and Rockwood Mountain Lodge are accessible only by 4×4 vehicle; transfer to be arranged with reservations office prior to arrival.
