Stayed at Ridgeview for a week. The owners are hands on and always willing to help. Morning and evening chats about exploring the world makes this lodge feel like home. Excellent company, great breakfast and just all round comfortable stay.

Nestled on Loudoun Road on the slope of Entabeni hills, we could not imagine a lodge so idyllically situated, with a beautiful view on the Durban Harbour. Ridgeview Lodge ticked all of our boxes and was even beyond our expectations. Chosen for its proximity to Entabeni
