FUNKY FACILITIES

Our earthy forest lodge and backpackers offers great facilities for a peaceful, relaxing getaway or a fun filled working holiday.  

Our shared communal spaces are simple and rustic, friendly and welcoming.  We do all we can to ensure that you feel comfortable and at home during your time with us. 

 

Daily yoga and other wellness activities, along with easy access to a variety of forest, mountain and beach adventures, all provide abundant stimulation for your wild spirit.  

This exquisite spot nestled on the western tip of the Tsitsikamma National Park is full of surprises! 

CRAFTED CREATIONS

The Wild Shop boasts a beautiful selection of hand-made, ethically sourced, and locally crafted creations. It has a collection of pre-loved clothing and books, natural cosmetics and interesting accessories made by local artisans. It stocks the tasty Sip ‘n Smoke range of nicotine-free rolli mix - a fantastic, locally grown alternative to tobacco. 

 

This space is also home to Tatanka’s range of stunning handcrafted leatherwork and bohemian style jewelry which she makes on-site  https://www.tatankaworld.com/ 

 

For the lovers of beautiful body-art, this is the place to treat yourself to one of Lucy Brown’s legendary hand-poke tattoo experiences   https://www.lucybrowntattoos.com/ ). 

MERRY MEALS

We believe in conscious, simple, wholesome country living, and strive wherever possible to create a healthy, balanced and stimulating environment where our guests can access various creative and wellness practices on offer in the area. 

 

Our in-house staff and local friends have a variety of skills to share. Some of these include a masseuse, a yoga teacher, qigong instructor, hairdresser, seamstress, beekeeper, music producer and a songwriter. 

When they are available, sessions or lessons can be booked with them directly or at Reception. 

 

We also grow organic vegetables, chop wood, remove alien vegetation and go for long walks with the dogs – all of which we consider to be the movement medicine of country life. We encourage our guests to partake in these daily joys!

MOVEMENT & MEDICINE

FOREST FANTASIES

This area is heaven for nature lovers! A short walk will take you down for a dip in deep rock pools in the valley below the Lodge, or to a massive 900-year old Yellowwood tree who loves to be visited. For a peaceful dose of ‘forest bathing’, we suggest a 30-minute barefoot walk along the bank of the Magic Forest river on the western slope of the farm. 

 

Nature's Valley, a ten-minute drive down the pass, boasts one of the most pristine beach and lagoon combos on the Garden Route, and is fabulous for swimming, chilling and bird watching, with various hiking trails radiating outwards and upwards.  

 

Not to be missed is a six-hour circular hike which takes you through all five of the local biomes which gives the Garden Route its reputation for being one of the most bio-diverse areas on planet earth. Ask at Reception for a map!

 

The world famous Otter Trail ends on this beach, and the multi-day Tsitsikamma Trail starts here. Visit www.sanparks.co.za to enquire.
