Spent the weekend at this majestic destination with the guys and had a absolute blast!!
The views are amazing feels like our own secret getaway from the city life. Food is amazing and staff too homely and warm
We had such a great experience, so relaxing, away from city life…nothing better than opening your door in the morning and seeing mountains.
The kids loved it, they brought their balls and bikes and enjoyed the open fields.
Seaforth is the perfect venue for birthday parties, weddings or smaller company get togethers. Feel free to book the whole lodge plus cottages for a weekend or longer.
At single occupancy we can house 10 guests, all in double beds. Sharing rooms and with extra beds and sleeper couches in the lounges, we can house up to 30 guests at the time.
We are happy to provide all the meals and extras or you bring in your own catering.
The dining room comfortably seats up to 30 persons.
Seaforth can accommodate small conferences, we can set up the lounge in one of the cottages for groups of up to 10 people and the dining room for up to 30 pax cinema style or U-shape. The only problem is that the views from the dining room may detract from the speaker…
Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. Take a break from the chaos of everyday life and get back to nature, peace and the outdoors.
That is why we offer you beautiful and comfortable accommodation for the whole family and something for everyone. From bird watching and hiking to lush gardens for reading and enjoying a sundowner.
Time to book your mountain getaway.

…its just that easy
You can take a 4×4 trip into Lesotho via the spectacular Sani Pass. Whilst up there, make sure you visit the ‘Highest Pub in Africa’ at 2875 meters above sea level. You can drive your own vehicle, or we can arrange for one of the local tour operators to pick you up from the lodge. Be sure not to forget your passport.
Take a stroll along footpaths to picnic sites along the river. Bring a picnic basket with a bottle of Champagne and swim in the gorgeous pools in the river. Or follow the river 1.5 km upstream to a beautiful waterfall. You will need to cross the river two times. From the waterfall, continue another km to the famous Sani Pass Hotel for lunch or a drink. We can also arrange for a guide to take you to Bushman paintings which can be reached by foot from the lodge, or high berg escarpment challenges.
We offer fishing on a trout dam next to the lodge and from the banks of the mKomazana River. The dam is regularly stocked with catch-size trout, and in the river, you can find naturally reproducing Brown trout. Our chef is happy to prepare trout caught in the dam. However, the river is strictly catch-and-release
Bird watching and indigenous game
The abundant birdlife on and around Seaforth Farm includes over 200 species such as eagles, cormorants, vultures and many more. All year round you may spot rhebuck and duikers. In winter the elands come down from the high mountains to graze on the farm. The baboons may visit and at night you can hear the jackals calling. If you are lucky, you may spot serval as well.
