Thorn Tree Lodge


Just 1km off the N3 in the quiet and exclusive suburb of Hayfields this attractive, thatched lodge offers 21 spacious en suite bedrooms, each with separate entrance, a cosy sleeperwood pub and magnificent views over the Maritzburg Golf Course and surrounding thornveld conservancy. Conveniently situated to the CBD, airport, schools and other amenities.

Perfectly located, just off the N3, this business and leisure centre in South Africa’s garden province offers an unusual rural experience with the convenience of close proximity to the centre of Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KwaZulu-Natal.
