Thea is an exceptional host and made us so welcome. The idea that meal preparation is a communal affair is fantastic. We sat, glass in hand ,chatting at the counter whilst Thea and her helper Nosipho prepared our dinner. The food was superb and we shall long remember the whole piece of fillet steak cooked oh so briefly over the hot embers of the open fire.
The position of the lodge is dramatic, overlooking the Umzimvubu river and the rolling hills of the Wild Coast. The rooms are comfortable but because mains electricity has only relatively recently been installed, no fans or air con. We could not have been looked after any better any where!! We loved the quiet ,the dogs and most of all, Thea herself!
Our canoe trip through the mangroves to the estuary was a real treat and definitely a day to remember.
