The Bath

Come join us at Away with the Fairies for the world famous cliff edge bath!

Hogsback is home to the Cliff Edge Bath

Perched right on the edge of the cliff overlooking the oldest forest in South Africa, you will find the world famous Bath.

This is an experience you will never forget, a bath on the edge of a cliff, with an incredible view of the forest and the 3 Hogsback Mountains.

We light a traditional donkey boiler in the morning and it is up to the guests to keep the fire going so the next guests can also have a hot bath.

You can book 30minute slots in reception upon your arrival at Away with the Fairies.

Please use only bio-degradable soaps, if you do not have any the Fairies will supply you for only R20, this way the forest remains happy too!

Bath runs from 10am-8pm

Best of all, it is FREE, for ANYONE!
