As soon as we walked in to Dijembe we had a good feeling about the place. Michael gave us a warm welcome and then Michelle came and found us to say hi along with the lovely doggies! We arrived at a good time and made some great friends - French, Dutch, German, English and somehow roped each other into doing the bungee. The place is thoughfully and rustically designed, hammocks, daily camp fire, recycled items making bird feeders, candle holders. They have a communal meal each night, which we had 3 out of the 4 nights we stayed there. All great cooking and value. Pancakes for breakfast and we had a lovely double room with ensuite. We were sad to leave. It's a place for people who want to meet, swop tales, share a beer or glass of wine - maybe a few! A great time had by all - thank you Michael and Michelle for looking after us so well, we were sad to leave! Definitely stay a few nights!
I did the horse ride, which was ok. Definitely aimed at people who cannot ride just to manage expectations, lovely rescue ponies, who dine in the garden
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As you walk into Dijembe you become a part of what this homely and sustainable lodge's name promises: a circle of friends. Handmade hammocks, recycled building materials, fresh mountain water and small details like the 'frog city' which protects little amphibians in the wild green camping garden, prove the passion of the green Dijembe team. Respecting the Khoisan ancestors, Dijembe not only invites its guests to drumming and dances, but also preserves their heritage by including and strengthening the local community. Visit the local township with its art shops and taverns. Bounce through the National Park and explore nature on foot, affordable mountain bikes or on the backs of Dijembe's horses - or book some tubing. End the day with a wholesome organic dinner and bread from the stone pizza oven, then star gaze from the jacuzzi on the candle-lit deck. ... more less
