I’d been looking forward to visiting Ghost Mountain, if only for the name, but how my excitement increased when I pulled into the car park and saw 26 pristine vintage Bentleys warming up for a day’s adventure. NOT what I had expected to find deep in the heart of Zululand! This is definitely a hotel (50 rooms) and thus not a typical GG entry. But I have no doubts about its suitability for this guide. All of the wonderful staff will instantly make you feel at home. In fact, I cursed myself for not organizing to stay the night after being informed, over a particularly rich and dark shot of coffee, that there was a boat trip to watch elephants drinking at nearby Lake Jozini or a trail in Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park on offer if I wished to join them. I didn’t even have time to sample a massage in the luxurious on-site health spa. Oh unhappy hour! I did, however, get to wander through the vast gardens that look up to Ghost Mountain (with its spooky history) and admire the fantastic double-trunked sycamore fig tree that stands next to a deep and inviting swimming pool. Naturally the rooms are also top notch: flat screen TV’s for sports lovers, reed lampshades that cast gentle shadows across soft white linen and a private patio looking across to the Lebombo Mountains. I cast a green eye on those beautiful Bentleys as charming owner Craig escorted me back to my car. His phone rang and he apologetically made his excuses. A Zulu princess was expected for lunch and arrangements had to be made. Bikes are available for guests’ use.
