Ease into the plush chair on your balcony overlooking the reserve, close your eyes and listen. The only sound you'll hear is a soul-cleansing silence that sets the tone for exceptional spa treatments.

Cool off by the pool with some refreshing homemade lemon and caramelized banana ice cream.
From the bedroom of your villa in Karkloof Safari Spa, you can watch the morning sunlight cut a swath across the mist-covered hills surrounding this luxury wildlife resort and spa in South Africa. Far off in the distance, steam rises from the backs of wildebeests as they graze carelessly beside giraffe, zebra, and rhino that roam more than 8600 protected acres. Time seems to slow down to a crawl in Kwazulu Natal, making each indulgent spa treatment seem twice as long.

Here in this all-inclusive haven, even meal times aren't bound by the clock. Fare featuring local organic produce and game meat is prepared on demand anytime of day. The lodge also features an extensive raw menu that enhances the cleansing effects of your spa treatments.

You'll be impressed by how the interior styling is beautiful, yet natural, and not overdone. You'll be even more impressed by the fact that the entire facility has been constructed using the strictest green practices. Now you can really sleep soundly.
