                  A truly different experience from the normal "coastal/seaside" holiday. The hosts are phenomenal, attentive, and really take care of their guests - food is really, really good, enhanced by the surrounding bush and atmosphere. Real value for money!!!

                  We had a 2 nights stay over at Shapes of Africa. What an awesome experience. I would recommend this venue to anyone who enjoys being in nature. Be prepared for the geckos they form part of the experience. Ray and Wendy you were an excellent host and hostess and made our stay at Shapes of Africa so much more worthwhile. The accommodation is neat and caters for all of your needs and is an excellent accommodation for self catering or not. its close to Durban beach front as well. We were a group of 20 people and the experience was amazing.
