The Karkloof Safari and Spa is only an hour and a half drive away, and is the perfect place to get away, — far enough to feel like a holiday, but close enough to allow for a night or two’s easy getaway. It’s an easy drive to Pietermaritzburg, followed by a short dirt-road trip to the main gate. From the second that you drive in,you see game walking around and the tone is set. At reception we signed...
