- accommodation and delicious home-cooked meals in Inchanga, close to Cato Ridge, Camperdown, Valley Of A Thousand Hills, Botha`s Hill, Drummond, Shongweni, Hillcrest, Kloof, Gillits and Pinetown, (halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg) - in a secure and beautiful country setting.
Delicous breakfasts and home-made meals are served in the dining room and pub or, if you prefer and the weather allows it, outside on the veranda, or in the outside pub/braai area in the fresh country air.
Wake up in the morning to the sounds of the abundant bird life and take a walk in the grounds where you may be lucky enough to encounter some of the small wildlife at Watervale, such as Oribi and Duiker. A few Hamerkop families have also made Watervale their home.
The more energetic at heart can take a leisure 5 km walk up the valley, to take in the stunning views from the 850 m high crest whilst also enjoying the fascinating flora and fauna en route.
