see & do

Long walks on the beach are definitely on, but the Eastern Cape is the Adventure Province so hiking, biking, mountain biking, horse riding, surfing, kite surfing, fishing competitions, kayaking, a round of golf, game viewing, the annual Wild Coast Jikeleza Festival, market days, microlight & helicopter trips, quad biking, zip lining, beer tasting …. all of this within a 15 minute drive radius of the lodge.

The breathtakingly beautiful Hole in the Wall is a 3 - 4 hours drive away. Madiba’s village of birth, Qunu, is only 2 hours away, as is the Graham's Town Arts Festival. There is also a vibrant art scene in Chintsa. During December there’s a joyous holiday vibe all around, and we let our hair down. As for the rest of the year, you’ll find the peace & quiet here truly magical and healing.

                                            The Green Deck with its incredible 360º view of both sunrise & sunset offers an

                                             amazing opportunity for photographers.
