About The Laughing Forest
Nestled amongst coastal dune forest, we have created a personalised home environment for each Log Cabin.The six acre property is home to mpete buck, a variety of birds, monkeys and other wild life and is situated in Elysium, which is halfway between Durban and Margate on the Natal South Coast. The Admiralty Reserve and rail line separate the units from the beach. Elysium beach is private, (very private) and clean. Tidal pools are situated east and west of our location within easy walking distance and also at low tide in front of our beach entrance. The Laughing Forest is close to most sporting and regular tourist activities, but far from Clubs and Malls. The Laughing Forest is a family orientated facility, catering for families wanting to build pleasant family holiday memories.Currently 8 self catering Log Cabins are scattered amongst the bush. All Cabins sleep 5 (1 double bed and three single beds).
Beach: The Elysium beach is unspoilt and has been identified by Wildlife as a protected area for the vegetation that exists on the dunes. Walking on this beach comes close to the Wild Coast experience
Wedding Venues: We have various options for the Wedding Ceremony, on a grassed terrace with stunning sea views, in the garden or on the beach. The Reception Hall can cater for up to 150 guests and a buffet menu is available on request.
Conference Venues: Conference facilities are available.
Family friendly: The Laughing Forest will suit people that are looking for a quiet family holiday. Close proximity of the sea lends itself to family time, building sand castles, playing ball games and taking walks on the beach.
