About The Jetty

The Jetty is perfectly situated on a 14 000 m2 piece of private land on the Mzimvubu River, surrounded by lush fruit trees in a completely natural setting, bringing one closer to nature. Wake up to the sounds of fish eagles or the endangered cape parrot and a morning breeze whispering through the trees. Watch the sun gleam on the river while you enjoy breakfast on the patio.

A lazy afternoon swim in our sparkling pool and a picnic under the shade of our century-old pecan nut trees is a sure favourite among our many regular patrons. Enjoy a spectacular sunset over Mount Sullivan while preparing your evening braai, or having sundowners at our bars patio.

The Jetty offers self-catering accommodation and all rooms have an en-suite bathroom, built-in cupboards, a fridge, kettle, dish cloths, a braai, as well as cutlery and crockery.
