The Homestead

The Homestead

Our home. Your home

An off-the-grid retreat from the hustle of life, here you can take a step back into values of old.
Steeped in family history, the Homestead stands on the footprint of the original rondavels built in the 1930s on the highest point of the reserve.

Uninterrupted views define your stay at the Homestead, convincing you that this is the heart of the Zulu kingdom.
The Homestead sleeps ten comfortably in the house and 2 ensuite rondavels.
It has a communal lounge area, fire-pit in the Boma, as well as deckside pool.
Homestyle meals are meticulously prepared by Alice, Makongo Hill’s warm-hearted hospitality manager and cook.
