About Mount Ingwe Lodge

Mount Ingwe Lodge borders the Baviaanskloof World Heritage site and is nestled on the farm Middelwater, in the Elandsriver Valley surrounded by the Winterberg Mountains. Find your lost rooms and explore a world of vast open spaces and horizons while Mother Nature inspires your senses with her sights and sounds.

Here you will find indigenous wilderness, touched only by abundant game species and birds roaming in the silence of the mountain tops and valleys deep. In this diverse ecosystem you will also find well-preserved Bushman paintings with its historical intricacies of our Earth's past.

Mount Ingwe Lodge is located 120 km from Port Elizabeth and 35 km from Patensie, a small country town in the Eastern Cape. It is also an easy drive from Jeffreys Bay and the Tsitsikamma National Park. With only nature all around, you will still find luxurious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms which were designed to bring Mother Nature into your resting place.

Mount Ingwe Lodge offers two types of self-catering accommodation, namely the Country House and the Ingwe Chalet. The Country House features four cosy bedrooms, while the Ingwe Chalet is an intimate and relaxing retreat for a couple. Both accommodation options offer bed linen and towels, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with toilet and shower, fan, heater, hairdryer and a braai facility.

The more adventurous couple can go for a quad drive through the farm and neighbouring farms. Choose a lovely picnic basket to enjoy or a braai can also be arranged. Enjoy a glass of wine on the stoep and view the spectacular sights of ribokke, kudu, bosbokke and Fish eagles at your doorstep.

Family friendly: A jungle gym is available for children to play on.

Beautiful surroundings and very homely farmstay. I would recommend this place if you need to get away from it all. There is however a long drive on a dirt road to get there but it was worth the effort. Here you can hear your own thoughts and if you need rest this is the place to come. You can just relax or take a hike on the farm. Very safe area and there are 2 perfect hosts who will go the extra mile for guests. Homely atmosphere with attention to detail and lots of little surprises to make guests feel at home.

We unfortunately were not allowed to change our reservation, even although it was 13 and not 14 days before the long weekend booked. I find it very difficult to believe that they had no one else interested to stay in the chalet, especially as it was a long weekend! They decided they would keep the R500 we had deposited to you ( Safarinow ).It was disappointing as they weren't prepared to accept any postponement till a later date.

Mount Ingwe has wonderful hosts who offer a warm welcome.  The accommodation is stunning, luxurious and with all the details beautifully provided. The museum on the farm is most interesting.

We had the entire Lodge to our self's. My only regret is that we were unable to stay longer and explore.
