We stayed here for one night. The owners was friendly without being false and aloof. Great rooms and rustic rondawels. Fire wood provided and silence with occasional wood noise such as Vervet Monkeys and birds. Will always atay there!

Never Daunted provides a good clean breakaway place for any family into the quieter side of life. Set amongst trees you feel away from the rest of the world, but still you are close to all amenities Hogsbach has to offer.

We were a large group of friends with children and booked 3 of the lovely cottages at Never Daunted. Josef and Elsa's hospitality was wonderful and welcoming and they looked after us so well. The cottages were spotless, comfy and cosy (with the very necessary electric blankets, fireplaces and tons of warm blankets). Extra unexpected touches were fresh flowers in...

We had a wonderful long weekend at Never Daunted. We went with two other families, so we hired 3 cottages in all. It was absolutely perfect for our needs - clean and affordable. We could be together, yet private and the gardens were enchanting - even the big holly bush had lovely red berries! We gathered at Redwood chalet most...

My husband and I go to Hogsback between two and four times a year. We always stay at Never Daunted. The cottages are all nestled in beautiful gardens. Our favourite cottage is Redwood Chalet. The cottages are always clean. We did not need to go find wood somewhere because Josef and his staff checks everyday if their guests need wood...

My wife and I decided to stay at Never Daunted, we had an enjoyable experience there, the friendly owners Josef and Elsa made us feel welcome from our first night until the day we left. We arrived late at night and were there in the middle of winter, but this did not stop Elsa from coming out in the cold...

Every time I go to Hogsback, I return to Never Daunted. The couple that own\ run the business are very accomodating and most hospitable, making space for me whenever I need a "time-out". After quite an exhausting trip to Mozambique for work, I popped in and was able to recharge my batteries because the space afforded me the peace and...

We spent 2 nights at Never Daunted with friends and it was a good experience. The roads are what one would expect from a mountiness, remote destination. The unit is not "modern" however it was clean and comfortable. If you want 5 star accommodation then you must be prepared to pay 5 star prices. The electric blankets on the beds...

I have stayed at Never Daunted twice and was never disappointed. My first visit in a little Toyota Tazz and made it up the path. Road conditions depend on the weather, but I would recommend going to Hogsback in an SUV or high clearance vehicle. None of the roads are tarred which is part of its remoteness and charm. Accommodation...
