About Highcroft Lodge

Highcroft Lodge is situated on a working parrot farm 1 km from Umzumbe protected beach. It has 14 rooms and can be booked on a B&LightB basis. It has a labyrinth and meditation room as well as a conference centre that will seat 30 people. Children and pets are allowed under supervision.

Relax on your own veranda, watching the sun set over the green hills, to the chorus of frogs, francolin and creaking bamboo as you catch a glimpse of the illusive phiti or duiker, or feel the air move as the birds and bats forage. This is the world where birds, buck and peace reign supreme. Meditate as you walk the sacred path of the labyrinth or let the wisdom of the ancient ruins of the meditation centre wash over you. The Labyrinth, with its soul energy, offers a stable and safe place to focus your attention and listen to the longing of your own soul.

Enjoy simple but tasty fare as you feed all your senses to the gentle sound of falling water. And leave restored with the silent promise to return once again.

              Elaine was very hospitable and the surrounds were great. Unfortunately I was unable to enjoy the great surrounds due to my hectic schedule on the said weekend. Hope to experience it again soon.

              A wonderfully tranquil setting. However - Google Maps has its location all wrong!

              The lodge is absolutely beautiful, with clean rustic chalets, a wonderful labyrinth and a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.  Elaine is so lovely and helped to make our trip even more enjoyable.
