The space
Kilmorna Manor is a unique, one of a kind home, that was designed and built by an eccentric Irishman in 1978, who decided that he wanted to have the best of both worlds: his deep love of the Lowveld Bush coupled with the gracious lifestyle of an English country squire. The result is one of the most unique homes to be found in Mpumalanga.

A Tudor mansion of magnificent proportions set on a 208-hectare, malaria-free, nature reserve high up against the escarpment of Schoemanskloof.

Kilmorna Manor Guesthouse and Private Nature Reserve occupies 208 hectares in the Schoemanskloof, a deep valley through which the Crocodile River flows down the escarpment from its source on the Highveld plateau to the sub-tropical Lowveld.

Schoemanskloof is thus in a transition zone, with elements of both the Highveld and the Lowveld, and this has resulted in a rich diversity of plants, birds, invertebrates and other life forms.

On the steeper slopes above and around the manor – at an elevation between 1300 and 1500 meters – the habitat is evergreen Afromontane Forest. Annual rainfall is between 1000 and 1250 mm per year and mist is a regular feature, sometimes lingering for days. This mist provides essential moisture for the escarpment forests that are sometimes referred to as ‘mist-belt’ or ‘cloud’ forests.

Kilmorna Manor offers a never to be forgotten experience, which includes gracious and opulent living in a serene and intimate setting. A five star, malaria free destination, Kilmorna Manor is ideal for the local and international guest who is looking for personal attention. Surrounded by natural beauty in the form of tranquil gardens and untouched bush - relaxation and rejuvenation is complete”.
