          I loved the location and view from the chalet overlooking the sea. I loved being close to the forest. The highlight for me was the hike down to the rocks by the sea. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the grounds and sitting on the chalet deck.Establishments Response:Hi ShanaazThank you for your lovely review.

          A stunning location just outside George. The ambience of the property is just : breathe,  enjoy,  kick back and watch the ocean in the distance from your deck. . The cabins all have ocean views while wildebeest graze right in front if you. Mark and Petra are lovely hosts and we highly recommend Kwelanga  to everyone. Julie and Dave
