About Platrand Lodge

Our 4 Star Platrand Lodge is in a malaria free area and 2 hours from Durban and 3 hours from Johannesburg.

Established on the farm Fourie’s Kraal on the Southern boundaries of Ladysmith, Kwazulu-Natal. Constructed in the style of the colonial era with long overhanging roofs and generous verandahs, and set in an enchanting valley, Platrand Lodge has so much to offer. From luxury accommodation to conference and wedding facilities with impressive views and friendly service.

Wedding Venues: Platrand Lodge is nestled in a fertile valley that frames the Drakensberg Mountains and with our wedding venue overlooking it, you want to make us the location to celebrate your commitment to each other.

Conference Venues: Three venues to choose from, we can accommodate from 25 people up to 400 people. We provide papers, pens mints and water with our venues, and have a number of conference stationary up for hire.

Family friendly: We have a designated kiddies area as well as a swimming pool and kiddies jungle gym area.
