We were met by our host John who gave us a tour of their amazing lodge where Nelson Mandela stayed during the negotiations which led to the New South Africa.. The beautifully decorated lodge is a real treasure trove and John is happy to tell you the history over a drink in the cozy lounge or on the patio overlooking the mountains . Even though we did not get the Mandela room we were treated like royalty. We were amazed at the range of activities on offer at Kingna Lodge. John is an avid biker and loves to show the magnificent surrounds of Montagu by leading Motorbike tours on his Harley. For others there are activities ranging from wine tasting to rockclimbing ,quad biking and just about anything else that takes your fancy. After the magnificent breakfast beautifully served with edible flowers you will have the energy to do it all. Our visit was too short to experience it all and we shall return. Thanks John for a magnificent stay, your passion for the lodge the region and life is intoxicating and we are hooked.
