Three Tree Hills Lodge – Spoiling In The Heart Of the Battlefields!

South Africa is awash with history – rich, powerful and often sad, each segment specific to the era and area. Historic sites where heroes shed blood and bravery was instinctive. One such place to visit, listen and learn is KwaZulu Natal’s Battlefields where tales of Anglo-Boer Battles abound ….

When visiting the area in a bid to learn more about the famous Spioenkop Anglo-Boer Battle I stayed at the glorious Three Tree Hills Lodge, set against the magnificent backdrop of the Drakensberg mountains and overlooking the Mfazimnyama Valley of the Spioenkop Game Reserve.

Spectacular scenery, locally grown food, crisp linen and superb hosts in Simon and Cheryl Blackburn make this the ideal place to stay at and unwind. On route it may seem that you are heading off the beaten track, but the elevated position, views and warmth that you are met with on arrival make you realise right away that you in a special place!

This is home to the Blackburn family and Africa fills every corner. They entertain with interesting anecdotes and personally host the activities which include Anglo Boer War Battlefield Tours, horse trails, hiking, bush walks and mountain biking.
