Breathtaking Oribi Gorge, just 25 minutes inland from Port Shepstone, might well be described as an African Grand Canyon. Although it is not as deep or long, the comparison is indisputable as you view the Mzimkulwana River winding its way through lush pristine wilderness between the precipitous rocky gorge walls. Paul and Leigh Langton invite you to the three guest houses on Oribi Gorge Guest Farm, situated on Oribi Gorge, within easy reach of Shelly Beach, Uvongo, Margate and Ramsgate - the strip along the Indian Ocean that is one of Southern Africa's favourite seaside resort areas.
The Oribi Gorge Guest Farm features three guest houses, the Shuttleworth House, Nerrily Cottage, and Lindile Lodge.
All are fully self-catering, with no shortage of modern appliances. They share equally in comfort and homeliness, but differ widely and beautifully from each other in their decor and theme.
Oribi Gorge Guest Farm offers visitors two holidays in one. With the beaches in easy reach guests can vary their seaside recreational activities with games of squash, tennis or bass fishing, 4x4 game viewing, horse riding or even white water rafting and rock climbing nearby.
The Langton's sugarcane farm is bordered by the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve and a walk or short drive will take one to spectacular views of the Gorge, one of the continent's truly unspoilt beauty spots.

There is a second gorge nearby through which the Umzimkulu river flows, making Oribi flats where the farm is situated a picturesque plateau between two river valleys.
