GOLF & BEACHES
For the golf enthusiast, there are several sought-after courses just a 50-minute drive from our lodge.
Although a bush lodge, The Gorge Private Lodge & Spa is 35 minutes away rom three sun-drenched beaches with a blue flag status. Swimming is safe, and the warm Indian Ocean makes swimming possible all year round.
