If you are not feeling adventurous, breathe in the valley while you enjoy personal pleasures from a sunny deck or in a quiet pool. Perfect for backpackers visiting the Eastern Cape area or a weekend getaway for everyone.

Guest Comments

Road directions poor, had to stop twice to get to correct road and turn-off.
If I compare the price of our previous stay/hike, Sand River offers very little, hiking trail not well marked and needs attention. Ladies shower relies on solar, with the result water cold early evening, as well as the shower head needs attention.
Will be a wonderful place in summer, but not enjoyable in winter. Hall/lapa too big and impersonal. Can do with better quality duvets/blanket
