Your Experience

You can only reach the picturesque Zuurberg Mountain Village and experience the beauty of this remote corner of the Eastern Cape, if you are prepared to venture off the beaten track. 

Get ready for a generous dollop of dust, rattle and roll as you zigzag into the clouds along the Zuurberg Pass, admiring the dense riverine forest and subalpine ridges of the rugged Zuurberg Mountains along the way. This stunning historic establishment – with its rambling gardens and breathtaking views over the Addo Elephant National Park – and its infamous Sunday lunch buffet should not be missed.

This 150-year-old historic mountain top hotel offers elegant accommodation, touched by the ambience of a bygone era. The Zuurberg Manor, part of the original hotel dating back to 1861, has spacious rooms, which are family suites. Each room has a full bathroom with shower and bath, minibar and private patio with spectacular views. You can also opt for one of the Edwardian Village Cottages, cleverly arranged so that you can enjoy both the spectacular mountains and the valley views. For those intent on camping or self-catering, the adjacent Addo Elephant National Park offers secluded bush camps, camping and more.
