We spent two nights and came away feeling relaxed and refreshed, hard to believe there is a place so peaceful and friendly so close to the hustle and bustle of Hillcrest. So much bird life and you feel like you are miles away from the nearest city. Loved it! See you soon!

What a wonderful place, filled with so much natural beauty. The accomodation is set amongst the shongweni valley, the birds, the atmosphere and the overall ambiance is a place one should not miss! Sue, her mother & Tyrone were hospitable, helpful and made us feel very comfortable in our home fr two nights!

I bought a voucher from daddy's deal for a two night stay and was really disgusted with the lodge. As soon as we drove into the lodge we knew we made a very big mistake coming here. When we were shown to our room we were even more disappointed. The room was tiny and the bathroom was so tiny and... More
