My stay at Kwelenga Country Retreat was brief - just one night en route to initially playing golf at Fancourt before venturing further along the Garden Route. From the offset I communicated with the lovely Petra and was soon feel the warm and passion that both she and Mark have for their special place with its wildlife surrounds. After a...

We spent 7 nights at Kwelanga..what a wonderfull way to end a very busy and tiring year. We enjoyed every moment spent as a family away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday rush. Great views all around. Excellent service from Petra and Mark. It felt like a little private community with the other wonderfull guests that we could...

After a mis-booking by Safari.now, the manager (Mark) of Kwelanga went out of his way to compromise for the mistake and offered us a free night's stay which we turned into a weekend away. What a tranquil, beautiful setting with an Indian ocean view and wild animals roaming in between the log cabins. Highly recommended to ease your soul and...

Not only is this the most relaxing, tranquil and peaceful getaway, but the manner and way in which this family run management make you feel at home from the minute we arrived until we sadly had to be on our way back home again and all this after a very recent stressful overseas trip, this was just what we needed,...

We spontaneously went for a road trip and decided to spend the night in George. i spoke to Petra as we arrived in George and I called in to ask for availability. I could hear that she's a lovely person and her friendly voice and way of talking made me really wanna go there. (It might be a bit pricey,...

Having read a poor 2015 review about Kwelanga Lodge we were a bit apprehensive but then realised that the reviewer had not even stayed at the lodge! This should not be allowed by Tripadvisor. On arrival we were very pleasantly surprised at the facilities, the location and the hospitality provided by the managers Petra and Mark. In fact all the...

We spent 2 nights here, love: the cabin, the views, the accommodation, the hospitality.....a little oasis away from the maddening crowds of December but also close enough to pop out to go and do the touristy things in the area, or go to the beach, go out to dinner. But the best is to stay here, swim in the pool,...
