A Connection to Nature

About Us

Away with the Fairies Nature Lodge is situated right on a cliff with the “Famous Bath” perched precariously on the edge of it! We are perfectly located, while overlooking the incredible 3 Hogsback Mountains as well as the Auckland Nature Reserve, the oldest forest in South Africa we are also a short stroll into the village.

We offer a variety of accommodation from freshly renovated Self-Catering Apartments and Cottages to En-Suite private rooms to Dorms and Camping.

Once here, you will find yourself surrounded by stunning mountains, pristine indigenous forests, countless waterfalls with an abundance of hiking. What’s more, the trails start and finish right at the bottom of our garden. These trails range from easy strolls to the notorious Amatola Hiking Trail!

After exploring our remarkable forests, and experiencing natures tranquil whisper, you may begin to discover why Hogsback is the birthing place of inspiration for many, including J.R.R Tolkien’s’ Lord of The Rings and even Picasso!
