Our thatched chalet accommodation is right in the middle of the reserve. Accommodation consists of self-catering or fully catered thatched chalets. There are romantic ostrich egg lamps and candles to create that real rustic bush camp atmosphere. Private patios with mountain or pool views are featured in all chalets. Each chalet is decorated with rich fabrics and follows an African flavor that is clean, simple and elegant. Combining comfort with the essence of Mother Nature, the lodge treats you with exceptional service, enabling you to relax and allow the tranquility of the Garden Route to envelop your soul.
