Gecko's View is a rare gem framed by truly beautiful surroundings and conveniently situated near to the KZN battlefields. The owners, Werner and Ilse, are wonderful warm and charming hosts who made our stay truly memorable. Bob and Yvonne

Only stayed one night unfortunately while visiting Rorkes Drift and Isandlhwana. Wener and Ilse were very generous hosts, and very thoughtful to our needs. Accomodation is very comfortable and clean and close to Fugitives Drift, & Rorkes Drift. Thoroughly recommended.
