About Kululapa-indi-bos

Nestled in the lush forested highlands of the Karkloof, Kululapa-indi-bos is uniquely positioned to give you space - space for adventure, space to see, space away from the city, space to breathe, space to reconnect.

The 'mistbelt Afromontane' forest is home to a variety of birdlife and wild animals. Pristine beauty and tranquil views, cool flowing streams, and shaded forest walks are on your doorstep. In the surrounding areas, birding sites and hides, zip line tours, botanical gardens, hot-air ballooning and a farmers market are available.

Come one, come all - from lone adventurers or solace-seekers to large family groups or camps, we offer accommodation, activities and experiences to suit all. 40 kilometres from Howick on tar and gravel, accessible by 4x4 or foot. Stargazers, backpackers, cyclists, bikers welcome. Ideal for birthdays, reunions, small weddings, or teambuilding.

Wedding Venues: Approximately 35 guests (including children) can be accommodated for a wedding. More if camping. No chapel, but outdoor wedding possible with own catering.

Family friendly: The accommodation units are ideal for small or large families, with space for children to play. The natural pool in the river is the perfect depth for children to splash and paddle, and they love to see the cows in the nearby meadow.

Romantic: The units are secluded enough to be private, and the atmosphere of cozy fires, moon- and star-lit nights, and the stillness of nature make for a romantic getaway.

          The lapa house had a wonderful social and inclusive atmosphere and we would love to have this as our annual extended family getaway. The off-the-grid approach was unique and a clever approach on the escarpment. So many activities!

          The owners were comforting,friendly and wonderful hosts. everything is on-site, and the owners help u with anything u may need. The zipline, hikes, bridges, waterfalls are all easily accessible.there are many footpaths that u can even explore on ur own. We had the company of the owners friendly dog whenever we went on the hikes alone. A wonderful way to get connected to nature.
