Fodor's Review

This lovely lodge, set on the edge of a forested gorge with the Tsitsikamma mountains beyond, is well-located for many of the Garden Route's most popular attractions, although you will be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave your room with its private veranda, sumptuous views, and cozy in-room fire place. Dinners (available on order for lodge guests only) are three-course meals featuring local seafood and venison, and are sociable affairs, taken around a huge table in the main house. Breakfasts are enjoyed outdoors on the patio. An energetic one-hour walk through the forest will bring you to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, and the Elephant Sanctuary. The lodge is conscientious about environmental and social issues, hiring and training staff from the local community. This commitment is reflected in their professional and friendly service. Ask for a Valley Suite as these have the most commanding views.
