Our Useful Features & Services

This well established Country House dating back to the 1930s is situated on a magnificent Nature Estate of 1400 hectares. It nestles in a secluded amphitheatre in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg and is a sanctuary for all who visit.

The Nature Reserve has 5 eco-systems, including indigenous forest, grassland, riverine, mountain and pine forest, which showcase the areas rich diversity of flowers, animals, and bird life. The nurturing environment has attracted the return of many of the species that once roamed the region, including Oribi, Rietbuck, Bushbuck, Bushpig, Antbear, Leopard, Serval, Caracal, Baboon and Eland.

This stretch of the Mooi River is highly regarded by fly fishermen who enjoy challenging the Wild Brown Trout that have been here since the 1870s. There are 6 well stocked Stillwater Dams.

Other activities include walking, mountain biking and bird watching.
The evenings are a time to relax on the terrace overlooking the river or in front of a roaring log fire in the cozy Ingwenya Pub. This can be followed with the enjoyment of fine country dining in our gracious dining room.

The climate of The Bend has year round attraction with distinct differences between the 4 seasons: the fresh green of Spring, followed by lush summer, then mellow Autumn with its rich colours and finally the crisp winter days with the occasional excitement of snow.

The Bend Country House has welcomed guests since 1994 and has provided the setting for many memorable weddings and celebrations. We look forward to seeing you soon.
