Please note that there is a 3km. public gravel road, the R401, which turns off onto a private stretch of 4.2 km dirt road to the lodges, which is stoney in parts and has quite a few drainage “bumps” on it. Normal sedan cars can cope, driven relatively slowly and carefully.

  • "Getting married at Steynshoop Valley and Mountain Lodge was absolutely the best decision we could have made. From our first email to our last goodbye Peter, Hanneli, and all of the staff were so welcoming, kind, organized, and so so good at their jobs. They don't just offer a wedding package, they offer a full wedding weekend experience. It was such a treat to have the venue for the whole weekend, where could fully enjoy the set-up, the fantastic night-before braai, the whole wedding day, and we could gently pack up on the Sunday. The whole venue is STUNNING, while still feeling genuine. From the accommodation to the food to the people, we can't say enough great things about this venue. We highly, highly recommend it!" - Alex and Robyn

  • Location is everything and this location is epic. The room was cozy, quaint and exactly what I needed.  The view from the room was breath-taking, with a gift of eagles/vultures soaring over the cliffs.  The staff are some of the best I have come to experience.
