A truly spectacular five star venue for you to unwind and experience a special stay inside ...More the elaborately crafted beaded and mosaic columns and decorated walkways, halls and bedrooms full of African craft. Truly a destination where you can also pamper yourself in our sauna or steam room or merely lounge on one of the many decks overlooking the beautiful natural surroundings with zebra grazing a few meters away and eagles soaring overhead in the reserve. It is also possible to take a leisurely nature walk along the top of the gorge or play golf at the nearby country club. All this and more a mere 20 minutes’ drive from Durban city center awaits you.
