Wonderful accommodation, delightful host and divine home cooked food . What more can you ask for. Superb location in between the two game reserves here in Kenton. Quite possible to see Elephants , buffalo and all the other usual suspects on your way to Intaka or back in too town and at night if your lucky the sound of Lions calling.

If you want to relax this is the place to go! We stayed in a self catering cottage which was beautifully setup. The owners and every single staff member are super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They checked up on us all the time to make sure we were happy but in such a way you felt welcome and not hassled. Everyday we saw monkey's and deer in the front garden. The pool is amazing and perfectly setup for a braai or just relaxing. The views are pretty good. The only warning I would give is that it is about 15km outside Kenton so getting to and from town takes 15 min each way however you see quite a bit of game on that 15 min drive which is an added bonus.

We absolutely intend on staying there again!

We stayed at Intaka lodge for the first 2 nights of our Honeymoon. We had an amazing time at this lodge, the two people managing this lodge are wonderful people and we got exceptional service! We would recommend this lodge to everyone looking for accommodation in this area. You will have a wonderful time!! We stayed in the King fisher room, it is huge and the bathroom is lovely. We loved everything at this lodge. Thank you to Reetha and Paul for making our stay incredible. We will be visiting again soon.

Located inland from Kenton on Sea and between to game reserves. Intaka is a wonderful spot for a night or two of relaxation. Convenient for beach or bush. Excellent accommodation and wonderful hosts. Our second visit did not disappoint !

With reserves on either side, you know you are going to be in good surroundings, and you certainly are. Intaka Lodge is a combination of wonderful views of Kariega Reserve and Kenton on Sea town & estuary, beautifully lush and well maintained gardens within the Intaka property and warm hosts in Retha and Paul. From Intaka Lodge you are actually in an ideal location to explore Grahamstown, Bathurst, Kenton on Sea, Port Alfred and Kariega Game Reserve. Excellent accommodation and hospitality.

I thought this would be nearer to the sea but it was in fact several miles inland near to game parks set in beautiful natural gardens with abundance of bird life. Fabulous swimming pool, best we found on our trip. So peaceful we stayed around the garden all day rather than rushing out exploring. Great hosts, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Accommodation gradually being upgraded. Would go back

Spent 2 nights whilst en route to Durban. Met mein host, Paulie, who was hospitable, informative and a great chef. My room was spacious, spotless and comfortable and quiet. The property is full of indigenous beauty and sadly I didn't have enough time to explore. However, I'll be back.

Intaka is in a lovely bush setting. My sister and I stayed in the free-standing cottage. The views from the verandah are sweeping and the monkeys provided endless entertainment. The cottage is fully furnished and very comfortable. The bird life is stunning as the garden runs into the bush. The lodge has a really nice pool area and there is access to the main house, with plenty of places to relax in.
