About Tower of Pizza Lodge

The Tower of Pizza Lodge is situated on a working grain farm in the Amphitheatre valley in the Northern Drakensberg, just 9 km from the Royal Natal National Park. Tower of Pizza has its origin in an unused grain silo, which with the addition of a traditional wood burning pizza oven, became a pizzeria. This quickly became a popular meeting place for both the local people and tourists and has grown into a landmark in the area. It is also used as a halfway meeting point for people travelling between Durban and Johannesburg.

Our accommodation was recently rated 3 Stars by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa and we offer comfortable, free-standing cottages or rondavels, all with en-suite bathrooms. Enjoy the company and tranquil setting that makes dining at the Tower of Pizza Restaurant a special experience. The restaurant menu includes pizzas, pasta, salads, sandwiches, desserts, and seasonal specials.

Activities on the farm or in the vicinity include hiking, fishing, horse riding, birding, tubing, abseiling and rap jumping, golf, mountain biking, 4X4 trails, and tours to the hydro-electrical scheme. Be sure to visit the nearby adventure centre for paintball, swinging trapeze, zip lines, and quad biking.

Host was attentive, welcoming, and informative. Excellent breakfast and infamous pizza in a lovely setting. Enjoyed the fireplace dining at dinner and breakfast on the veranda. Enjoyed two fantastic hikes in the Royal Natal National park only 7 km away. Hope to return.

the rondavell is pretty rustic, but purposeful. there is no wifi. but I guess this is due to being situated in a remote area. unfortunately we didnt have reception for our phones as well. the owner is very friendly and gave us super helpful advice for our journey due to riots on the highway.

We found absolutely NO downsides relating to our stay at TOP Lodge. From ease of booking thru SafariNow to checking out, all was above expectation. Staff were all great, accommodation was very comfortable and the food was excellent. Also close to other local amenities. What more can one ask for?

We loved the tranquil farm-among-the-mountains setting. The rondawel made a positive impression upon arrival. It is conveniently equipped with, in addition to tea/coffee-making facility, a fridge and microwave. There is ample space to unpack and two luggage stands. We made the reservation specifically to do the Cannibals Cave parkrun (some 10km away) the Saturday morning. As we would have missed breakfast, we were offered sandwiches, fruit and juice instead. The restaurant's menu is appetizing with, among others, lovely pizzas. We had pizzas some 21+ years ago in the tower, and were given...
