Be one of the few owners of this magnificent 100Ha+ nature reserve including sole ownership of your site from R1.5m-R2.25m

Cleopatra Hamlet presents 13 lucky owners with the opportunity to experience a secluded and privileged way of life in this exclusive mountainside retreat.


Set on the banks of the Little Mooi River in the shadow of Cleopatra Mountain, this residential eco-estate offers just 13 sites with sole ownership rights. Bordered by the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Mountains and Highmoor Nature Reserve, both World Heritage sites, and close to the Kamberg Nature Reserve, the silence and pristine natural beauty make this area a well-kept secret.

Fly-fish for brown trout in the river, hike through the mountains, or simply sit in a comfortable chair and listen to the baboons barking in the indigenous forest at the foothills of the mountains.

This is a way of life to be cherished.

Cleopatra Hamlet is the concept of Richard and Mouse Poynton, with a long-standing reputation in the hospitality industry, who established Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse, an exclusive and intimate hotel and restaurant, in the upper reaches of the scenic Kamberg Valley, 40 minutes from Nottingham Road in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. It has taken them over seven years to bring their dream to fruition, creating a limited edition residential opportunity for like-minded people who want to escape the bustle and noise to savour the way of life that they love.

It may well be the last estate of its kind to be situated so close to protected natural areas.

Holiday home

View_from_the_top-w1000Cleopatra Hamlet will be a holiday haven for those who dream of fly-fishing in crystal clear mountain waters, ambling along a hillside trail, or spotting rare birds and wildlife, including herds of eland, three species of cranes and the endangered bearded vulture or lammergeyer. In winter, snowfalls are common, so building a snowman or throwing snowballs could be an annual event.
