Today, this intimate and privately owned establishment stands as an exceptional venue, with an array of facilities to host a wide range of events, meetings, and special occasions.

Additionally, the centre provides a private foyer, patio, and courtyard for coffee breaks, cocktail parties, or outdoor gatherings.

Ghost Mountain Inn is fully equipped to handle audio-visual presentations, boasting automatic dropdown screens, projectors, built-in sound systems, and roving microphones in all meeting rooms. These facilities ensure the smooth execution of presentations and discussions during your event.

For those seeking an enchanting outdoor setting for special occasions or garden weddings, Ghost Mountain Inn’s expansive lawns and giant fig tree provide the ideal backdrop. Here, you can host banquets for up to 160 people, creating memorable moments beneath the open sky.

A notable addition to GMI’s facilities is the video conferencing system in the Mtwazi Meeting Room, catering to virtual and hybrid meetings. This technology offers a seamless way to connect and collaborate with remote attendees.

Ghost Mountain Inn prides itself on hosting a variety of events, each catering to different tastes and interests. Highlights include:

Sporting events
GMI’s proximity to the Mkuze Cricket Club allows the possibility to host cricket festivals throughout the year.

Annual wine festival
Ghost Mountain Inn hosts an annual wine festival that showcases wines from the Cape. With 20 to 30 wine farms participating, visitors can savour a wide variety of wines while enjoying live music and a vibrant atmosphere. This festival is an annual highlight that attracts wine enthusiasts from far and wide.

Special interest weekends

Ghost Mountain Inn is dedicated to showcasing conservation efforts and local communities in the region. A recent family weekend in June included a pangolin walk, game drive in Manyoni, a visit to a local creche, story-telling by Kingsley Holgate, a rhino art project for kids, and a visit with a Sangma. Music by Qadasi added to the epic experience.

While GMI does offer venue and catering services, they encourage event planners to bring their creativity and expertise to the table, ensuring that each event is tailored to meet the unique needs of the client. The team at GMI is also available to provide assistance, should it be required.
