Wow! Beautiful, peaceful location. Clean, comfortable big dormitories with the most stunning view over the forest. Delicious, healthy, nutritious breakfasts/dinners. Friendly, helpful staff. Good bar. Open log fires. Great walks. Yoga studio. Tasty farmstall nearby. I really cannot fault this place. I considered staying long term and volunteering for them!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Wild Spirit Lodge and Backpackers is situated at Khoinania on the edge of the Tsitsikamma National Park, close to Nature's Valley beach. Surrounded by indigenous forests with views over the valleys and mountains, this is the ultimate place to come and relax. Located in the heart of the Garden Route, between Plettenberg Bay and Storm’s River. Upon your arrival you will be greeted by their four exuberant and very friendly dogs just waiting to bound up and meet you. The accommodation ranges from simple camp sites with incredible views to ensuite double rooms full of character. There are also bunk free dorms for weary travellers looking for a quiet spot to rest their souls. The beautifully created Driftwood Boma or cosy Log Cabin are great places to spend a lazy day, or maybe head up to the Tree House and relax in the canopy of a giant Blackwood. On those days when it is just too hot then jump into their grand swimming pool to cool down. ... more less
