We Are The Perfection Location For:


We offer the option of both outdoor and indoor venues for both ceremony and reception. The hill top garden overlooks the majestic river and mountain views. The banquet hall is the perfect winter venue for an intimate wedding.


An amazing breakaway from the buzz of the city to gather your thoughts and plan your next move.  With a conference room that can be set up to suit your needs as well as plenty of space outdoors for bigger events.

What Our Visitors Say About Us:

Our year end function was held at this pristine place on the banks of the Palmiet river in Elgin; 50 of us were spoiled with excellent food and drinks, beautiful chalets with very comfortable beds and fresh linen and above all friendly and skilled staff. An amazing spot for both leisure as well as business destination. We will be back here in personal capacity bringing the family!

We held a break away with our management team for 2 nights at the lodge. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service fantastic and the food way above what we expected. Management were very flexible which was fantastic. There is no cell phone connectivity and only limited wifi connectivity which added to the experience – people weren’t pulled away from the meetings with unnecessary calls.
