It’s Bee Season & some swarms need careful relocating so they don’t become an angry problem. If you have a swarm you need to move, please call Yzelle Greyling on  072 265 2326 and she will come and sort your problem out and relocate them to a nearby farm.

Heads Up
The wrong mobile number for Vuna Valley Lodge and Samango Lounge. was given last week The correct number for Nishka Slabbert is 071 451 6060.
The restaurant and lodge can be followed on facebook: Vuna Valley LodgeNewly refurbished and under new management Vuna Valley Lodge is a hide away in the African coastal bush where the fish eagle calls, samango monkeys hide and with a view of the peaceful verdant gorge. A mere 500m from the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve and less than 30-minutes drive from well known fishing spots and excellent golf courses. The lodge offers exceptional value for money in en-suite double rooms, family rooms or a back packers’ dorm. The affordable rates may include breakfast by choice.

In the rustic Samango Lounge chef Nishka prepares exceptional dishes for meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans for lunch and dinner. The latter is by appointment and guests are invited to discuss the menu with Nishka to ensure a most satisfactory culinary experience. Host Jacobus will arrange activities and outings to the many places of interest in the area from the red desert to diving expeditions to hiking trails. A picnic basket can be ordered for an al fresco lunch.

Although the lodge is not yet licensed guests are invited to bring their own alcoholic beverages or to enjoy the fun of Mocktails at the bar overlooking the beautiful valley.

Samango Lounge is open from 7h30 to 16h00 daily from 13 November for the public and guests staying at the lodge.
