Area Information:

iNsingizi Lodge & Spa is nestled in a secret valley on a working cane farm in the South Midlands of KZN, in the farming district of Eston/Mid Illovo. It has an air of tranquility and a "get away from it all" feel that has made it a destination of choice for more and more returning visitors.

The original farm Torquay has been farmed in the Dohne/Killian family for more than 75 years and is currently farmed by Nigel & Di Dohne and their sons Ryan & Kyle. Their daughter Jenna assists in running the lodge.

What started out as a means of generating employment for the local community and a chance for the Dohne family to share their heritage, love of the land and indigenous bush with friends and family....has expanded into a personable and lovely African-themed Lodge & Spa that offers a close-by, inexpensive and fun-filled escape in KZN that just really needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Beautifully located lodge in a serene valley. The layout of Insingizi simply adds to the magical ambiance of being one with nature. Truly appreciated being able to hear the rustle of the wind in the leaves and the cheerful chirps of the birds in our midst. The morning visit from "bambi" was an awesome surprise for our toddler. Staff are friendly and aim to please. Nanny service is available on request in advance. That I did not know about. Overall, a great escape...not too far out from Durban. Who would have thought! Friends and family are already asking about this gem, that is Insingizi, after seeing photos of my stay here.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

We booked after word about the nice mountain bike trails at iNsingizi. The lodge setting is special and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Our daughter was carried away by frequent sightings of antelope. Regular visits by Ziggi, the tame reedbuck, highlighted her days. The room was spacious and comfortable and offered quality sleep. We enjoyed the nice 'farm-stye' food and especially appreciated that guests are not ripped off at the bar. The mountain bike trails are great. They flow very well and offered beautiful endurance and technical rides. Must go back for more riding! A child-care facility will add value at iNsingizi.

We stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding at Sweet Home nearby. When I walked into the reception it was a wonderful surprise to see a huge fire place and the charming lounge. The bedrooms and bathroom were really lovely. The children were kept amused by the very loving resident three legged buck who visited our rooms. We were most impressed with the Lodge and look forward to coming again for a weekend.
