About Old Joe's Kaia

Old Joe’s Kaia is a country haven for the dreamers of a better world.
In our Lowveld paradise we delight and nourish our guests with a myriad of nature based activities and vegan cuisine. Our fast becoming famous restaurant was renamed on the first of February, and is now called The Seedling. The magic ingredient has stayed the same and Marian heads up the kitchen with renewed passion, flair and a plethora of plant based ingredients. The new menu is sure to plant seeds on how to eat with less impact on our planet, and astounds the local manne with its wholesome and delicious alternatives to meat.
Our wellness offering has extended to include yoga, reflexology, massage and inspirational workshops and retreats run on a monthly basis.
The accommodation has high doses of quirk, love and comfort. Each uniquely appointed en suite room has their own private outdoor area.
Twinspots, Narina Trogons and Finfoot are a few of the characters to tick off your bird list. Our classic seven circuit labyrinth, the outdoor Olive Room, the swimming pool nestled in the garden forest and cloud gazing on our lawn, feed the soul and rejuvenate as only nature can.

The whole atmosphere at Joe's is greatly relaxing. The log cabin was extremely comfy. Julia's evening meal was absolutely wonderfully tasty. Definitely worth another visit.

We always drive past Old Joe's on our way to the lowveld. This time we stopped and what a stay. The food was fantastic and the room cosy. A big treat was the chocolates on the pillow and water with lemon in the bathroom. The view from the deck is exquisite.  We will return !
