We cater for holidaymakers and travellers who require central but tranquil surroundings set in beautiful indigenous bush with abundant birdlife.
Eagle Lodge is perched high on the hill and is a favourite with guests who love the spectacular panoramic views to be enjoyed from the deck.

The master bedroom contains a double bed, an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in cupboard. The second and third bedrooms each contain twin single beds, and there is a double sleeper couch in the lounge. The second bathroom has a toilet, basin and bath and linen and bath towels are provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering and includes a stove and microwave. The comfortable lounge includes a TV with selected DStv and a DVD player, and all of the rooms have ceiling fans. The deep veranda offers wonderful valley views and is the ideal place to enjoy the spectacular bird life. There is also da double carport under the house and it is fully secure with an electric fence. Pets are welcome and the lodge is serviced daily, except on Sundays and public holidays. Please note that the rates displayed are for the first three guests, and additional guests will pay an additional amount of R230 per person out of season and R460 per person in season; hence we advise guests to request the appropriate tariffs.
