What a wonderful lodge, location, low impact architecture, beautiful unspoilt surroundings, exceptional service and fantastic rooms and food. We enjoyed the birding and flowers and were astounded at the lovely library.

It is in a really remote and pristine part of our beautiful country and both the lodge and its people do justice to every kilometer one has to travel to get there. We enjoyed the hike in the mountains, the service and food are exceptional.

Our stay at Tenahead Lodge was truly 'heavenly' - not only because it is situated to high up in the mountains but also in terms of the service we received. Lisinda made us feel so welcome that Tenahead was truly our home over Christmas. The views from the very spacious rooms are stunning. The food was delicious. Tenahead will definitely...

Tenahead scored 12 out of 10 in every aspect, location, staff and accommodation. I will definitely visit again. The road might be a challenge for the less experienced driver, but the scenic route made it worth it.

Tenahead Mountain Lodge exceeded my expectation in all aspects with regards to luxury and service. Other than the rather daunting and 'road less traveled' journey to get there our stay there was exceptional. This is not your average 5 star lodge in the mountain. This is about as good as you are going to get if you are looking for...
