It is ideally situated a few minutes off the N2 freeway and less than an hour from King Shaka International Airport. We are a springboard for your journey to St Lucia and Isimangaliso, the Kruger, The Battlefields, The Elephant Coast and even Swaziland and Mozambique. The hatchery is also a unique destination to in itself and is a must do for any visitor looking for a real experience of what africa is like… Guests often feel that something about this place is special. We have changed the pump house, artemia and maturation rooms into 11 spaces – each one can be experienced and enjoyed – they’re individual and different …but modular so you can mix and match your group. So have a look through the rooms and pictures and the butlers look forward to welcoming you to your own unique experience.
