Fodor's Review

Vistas stretch into the misty green distance at this lovely lodge set among gardens on the edge of a forested gorge. Rooms are decorated in a modern African motif, with cast-iron furniture, white linen, and African artwork. In summer the private verandas with hammocks are as popular as the fireplaces are in winter. The food (for lodge guests only) is great, and meals are sociable affairs, taken around a huge table in the main house; breakfasts are taken on the patio, from

where you can watch vervet monkeys play in the trees. Local seafood and ostrich are well represented on the menu, but vegetarian food is handled with flair. An energetic one-hour walk through the forest will bring you to Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, and the Elephant Sanctuary. The lodge is very conscientious about environmental issues.
