Very, very cool location and a very, very cool place to stay. Charming location & great rooms which all seem to have the same fantastic view of the mountains that we had, along with really charming staff for whom nothing was too much trouble.

About
Description
In 2014 the EarthRise Mountain Lodge was redefined as an eco-lodge & convening space to reimage the country of our dreams. It is a social enterprise & it’s profits will go back into building a self sustainable More community which is able to grow it’s own food & support the establishment of village enterprises in Naledi as well as Franshoek Villages. Today Eagle Valley is host to the Lodge, a large conference & wedding venue, the Naledi Art & Community Centre, a wood mill, a brick making plant & honey farm. The Naledi Farmers Coop is cultivating 5 hectares of produce & the village has built it’s own school as well as creche. The lodge is also currently running an eco worm farm, collecting worm tea & vermicasting both for use by the village as well as an income. The lodge is currently establishing a vegetable garden , plant nursery & indigenous medicinal garden. Inside the beautiful stone lodge you can collect your thoughts at the roaring fire place or enjoy a delicious meal. Less
