Our Lodge is situated in the bush and are very rustic, built according to the Zulu Tradition.

Houses of Zulu are made with mud, grass, tree poles, and mud bricks. They used their hands and feet to build houses. In Zulu culture it was a man’s responsibility to build a house, but women also help to build the house.

The doors of houses must face on the same direction. Only one door is a point of entry and for exiting that house. Normally these entrances were made to be lower to such a point that when anyone who enters will sort of bow their bodies. At least houses will last for about 10 to 15 years before rebuilding could be done. What happens mostly is that, the family keeps on building other houses just next to that before if falls down or they themselves bring it down.

The roof is made out of thatch that is sewn to the wooden braces with rope made out of grass. The process of completing the thatch can take one weekend or up to two months depending on the builder’s commitment at a time, starting from the bottom working towards the top, each section is sewn, it may be weathered and aged in as form a complete weatherproof seal.

We have added tin sheets on top for extra care during the rainy season.

All our beds and furniture are handmade by the locals to fit in with our rustic look. And we take proud in that!
