Motivation for award: In 2015 my husband and I bought the business and became tenants of a rundown place, barely functioning, and upgraded. It is a constant upgrade and have incorporated many new ideas to the lodge. We are also a working Pecan Farm and are gearing toward organic nuts. Our Entire gearing at the lodge is in an organic direction.

The Owl and Elephant Lodge

Where guests become family!

Our Lodge is situated on the outskirts of Weenen, Kwazulu Natal. We are a working farm Lodge. We farm primarily with Pecans. Our Lodge has 12 rooms is able to sleep 28 persons sharing. We have an onsite birding guide who happily takes people for a bird walk on our and our neighbours farm. We also offer private game drives in our hidden gem, Weenen Nature Reserve. For those who just want to chill, we have a love big garden, and walking trails along our dam and well as through a little bushland area. Lay down and the stars in our pollution free sky at night. Listen to the crickets, frogs and other night creatures. Guided Night walks on the property are also something one must do.
