About Enaleni Guest Farm

Nestled in the country, 6 km from the N3, between Durban and Pietermaritzburg you will find a unique guesthouse on a working agro ecological farm. Accommodation is available as a B and B or self-catering basis.

All rooms are en-suite. A major feature of the guesthouse is the dome in the main living area. Here you sit in the lounge with an open fireplace in winter or sit on the stoep overlooking the garden and the farm with a 180-degree view. The bulk of the meals come from the farm, freshly picked and wholesome. This is a working farm so you can experience life amongst the animals or take a stroll in the orchards or orchid houses. Some of the animals include a registered herd of Nguni cattle, endangered Zulu sheep, dogs, old-fashioned poultry and a Spanish Donkey called Gundagunda.

Enaleni Guest Farm has won the SAB 2011 Eat In Award for best South African Heritage Farm. The farm is preserving our heritage by keeping a herd of Nguni cattle, endangered Zulu sheep, growing rare, local maize varietals and the traditional ibhece melon.

Visiting Enaleni is an opportunity to experience an unusual working example of agro-ecological farming. A type of farming that draws from the vibrant heritage of KwaZulu-Natal in an environment that is restful and casual surrounded by abundant agro-diversity.

When arriving one might feel that you have made the wrong choice as the grass is long and the garden seems very average. The accomadation building seems very outdated from the outside as well. Once you enter the accomadation you find that the owner has put up a very farm like theme to his accomadation. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are nice and spacious. The only thing wrong was that we found that in some areas the rooms weren't cleaned properly. Dust in the corners and ontop of some ledgers. Otherwise is was great. The breakfast that Richard makes is a must! It's a three...

I loved every moment of my (sadly) very short stay at Enaleni Guest Farm - from the exquisite tiny touches, like the seashell spoons and blue glass bottles in the domed roof of our room, to the wonderful animals (including a three-legged grayhound and visiting peacock).The breakfast was especially enjoyed! Thank you to Richard and Bobby for being amazing hosts.
