The Ghost Mountain Inn - gateway to Maputaland
Gateway to Maputaland - the Ghost Mountain Inn lies at the foot of the famous Ghost Mountain, near the Mkuze Nature Reserve in picturesque northern Zululand.
This privately owned country inn serves as a gateway to the ecological, historical and cultural marvels of the Maputaland Elephant Coast. The Ghost Mountain Inn also serves as stop-over for travellers to Mozambique and Swaziland.
The Inn is within easy reach of the major game and coastal resources of the Elephant Coast where you can enjoy activities as diverse as game viewing, inland tiger-fishing, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
Game drives in open safari vehicles
Game drives are available to Mkuze Game Reserve and private game ranches in custom-built open safari vehicles. Only 16km from the inn, Mkuze Game Reserve is a bird-watcher's paradise.
Strongly recommended is a walk through the forest where sycamore fig trees tower amongst fever trees and the haunting cries of trumpeter hornbills create a surrealistic scene in one of the rarest forest types in South Africa.
To round off the day, spend the late afternoon elephant tracking in the Pongola Game Reserve, or delight in the thrill of hooking a tiger fish in the waters of Jozini.
Maputaland's Elephant Coast
Maputaland's Elephant Coast offers an unforgettable opportunity for visitors to retrace the paths of past traders, explorers, pioneers and tribesmen, to view traditional homesteads amongst the rural tribal communities and to revel in the area's unspoilt beauty.
You can venture south to Lake St Lucia and Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve, or north to Ndumu Reserve or Tembe Elephant Park, which is home to the last truly wild elephants of southern Africa, or view the traditional fish kraals at Kosi Bay.
A trip eastward will lead you to Lake Sibaya or Sodwana Bay, where endless stretches of pristine golden sand hug the coastline of Maputaland and some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving reefs are to be found.
