The lodge is located on a beautiful piece of land with a panoramic view of the Berg from Amphitheatre all the way to Cathkin Peak. Hike through wild flowers and indigenous grasses along the Mpande river on one of the maintained cycle trails. There is an abundance of birdlife for those of you who are avid twitchers as well as small mammals like otters, bucks, porcupines, meerkats, carycals, serval cats and metre long lizards. Walk to the big tree or just take a dip in one of the dams. No need to drive anywhere and certainly no entry fees required. A fabulous and refreshing way to ease those travel-weary bones. People hike on the afternoon of their arrival or the morning of their departure, but some just enjoy a few days of peace.
