Behind Port Elizabeth in uncharted Eastern Cape mountains, Sand River Getaway
offers you a place to unwind, adventure, relax and explore.
There are a number of scenic hikes and trails, as well as an unknown river hike to a waterfall are within walking distance from a comfortable setting on the side of a mountain in the Elands River Valley. A short drive and you are in Addo National Park, the Baviaanskloof, Groendal Nature Reserve or the Longmore Forest which all offer spectacular views and trails.
If you are not feeling adventurous, breath in the valley while you enjoy personal pleasures from a sunny deck or in a quiet pool. Walk to our vegetable garden and take in nature. Perfect for backpackers visiting the Port Elizabeth area or a weekend getaway for everyone.
Sand River Getaway is an Eco getaway where we are trying to live a sustainable existence, with the hot water and the fridge using gas and lights in the Center being solar powered. The facilities are all centralized. Our water comes from a borehole and is delicious. We keep the lighting minimal so that you can see the incredible stars at night. These elements of our establishment mean we urge guests to be mindful and understanding when using facilities.
Sand River Getaway also offers wedding packages with a beautiful bush chapel and a hall for the reception with the Groendal mountains as your backdrop.
We are proud to be the home of Brixtonfoods. So if you would like a catered meal, either dinner or breakfast we will do our best to fill your stomach healthily. No gimmick diets just natures medicine prepared with love and a touch of class.
