Cleopatra is located in KwaZulu Natal’s Drakensberg Mountains surrounded by the Giants Castle Nature Reserve.
Walking, hiking, swimming in mountain streams, trout fishing, bird watching, horse riding and excursions to local bushman paintings are just some of the activities enjoyed on the farm and in the area and of course, the food!
The eleven rooms at Cleopatra are fast becoming world renowned for the innovative and creative decor. Each room has a theme and is filled with many articles pertaining to the colour scheme and theme. All rooms have a warm, snug bed with down duvets and pillows, fresh crisp, sweet smelling cotton sheets and mohair blankets. All have en suite bathrooms, TV, tea making facilities, heaters, fans and warm towels rails. All have spectacular views of the mountain rising from the bottom of the garden.
A friendly dining room filled with interesting artifacts and a large crackling fireplace invites you to enjoy a world-class meal lovingly prepared by Richard Poynton (recently awarded a 5 star chef status). Passion and patience goes into the preparation of every dish with flavour paramount. Menus change daily and local, imported and homegrown ingredients are used at their peak and a stroll through the vegetable and herb gardens will attest to this. A place in the country becomes a natural magnet to people who want to savour the flavours of home grown vegetables, farm fresh dairy products and home cured hams. The passion and patience that go into the preparation of food are reflected in its tastes and textures.
