About Benmore Lodge

Kei Mouth is one of the best-kept holiday secrets in South Africa. This charming village on the southern bank of the Kei River is a delightful holiday destination. Wide clean beaches, fringed with wooded dunes lead inland to subtropical bushveld. Now visitors to this delightful hamlet can combine a Wild Coast seaside holiday with the tranquillity of the bushveld at Benmore Lodge.Benmore Lodge is situated above Kei Mouth, in rugged, steep, bushveld countryside. It nestles in typical Transkei rural scenery with scattered dwellings in the distant rolling Transkei hills. There is an amazing variety of birdlife. Game viewing features eland, impala, bontebok, kudu, bushbuck, wildebeest zebra and many others. Benmore Farm, on which Benmore Lodge is situated, is a delight to explore on foot; from a short stroll to the Strelitzia fields to an adventurous circle route on foot and boat via the Kei River to the village of Kei Mouth.Tranquillity and privacy are keynotes of your stay at Kei Mouth when you visit at Benmore Lodge. December has daily activities for children of all ages on the beach; lifeguards on duty in holiday season. For the teenagers and adults there is lots to do between Christmas and New Year including a great music festival with South African bands. Membership of the popular Kei Mouth Country Club can be arranged. The club has great golf competitions, such as the famous Kei Mouth/Morgan Bay Challenge in December. The club also features a popular restaurant and bar. The Shed, a pub n grub, hosts Kei Mouth's most popular New Year’s Eve party as well as milestone dates throughout the year. Once a cow shed on historic Benmore Farm, The Shed is a real haven of tranquillity. It is a short walk from the chalets of Benmore Lodge. Combining Benmore Lodge and The Shed you have an ideal party venue for those special occasions; no driving necessary after the party. We give special rates if you are staying at Benmore Lodge and using The Shed as a party venue. In season it is open daily for drinks and pub meals. There is a fully stocked bar with a varied cocktail and shooter menu. Pub meals include mouth-watering calamari and chips, traditional fish and chips, fresh salads, wraps and many more dishes. Every Friday night is "braai night" and we supply a variety of braai packs, salads, pap&sauce and our ever famous vetkoek!There are spacious, comfortable braai facilities which are at the disposal of guests, and braai packs can be bought from the pub. Life doesn't get much better than sitting on the deck outside The Shed, enjoying a sundowner and watching the birds and buck. It is an ideal venue for families. Children can roam around and experience farm life, see the wild ducks on the dam and the guinea fowl, chickens and bush buck. In the morning, our resident blue crane graces the farm with his regal presence. Peace and quiet, friendship and good times are all part of life at The Shed and Benmore Lodge.

Cleanliness need a lot of improvement. I had to clean out old cheese from the cheese grater. Linen torn and curtains stained. Shower-curtain covered in mould. Some of the cutlery was broken, mismatch plates, glasses and cups. Would not book again.

Pleasant and spacious cottage. Beautiful views, also on the animals of the neighboring game park. Tasty braai on Friday. Very friendly owners.
