Sodwana Bay ~ Northern kwaZulu Natal ~ South Africa
Foundation Lodge is a self catering villa in the rural French style, designed and decorated with a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere. The sitting room, with its high ceilings and plenty of glass, creates a peaceful ambience as circadian light plays change throughout the day.
The open plan kitchen is well equipped, with a gas hob and ceramic countertops to give freedom to your culinary dreams. Enjoy your meal on the weathered oregon~pine table with its metal insignia inlays. Two air-conditioned bedrooms with two en~suite bathrooms and a mezzanine comfortably sleep six. The mezzanine opens onto an upstairs deck for a commanding view on the surrounds.
Leading through large sliding doors, the living space spills onto the oversized verandah where the prevailing north~east sea breeze, the lush garden and the distant roar of breakers is sure to lull you into that idyllic summer~forever feeling. The verandah with its heavy wrought iron table is predictably the favorite spot for a meal with the family; or just a lazy swing in the hammock while enjoying a good book. Breathe deep, stretch out, relax in luxury. This is the kind of place where love and laughter is woven into the fibre that holiday dreams are made of.
Sodwana Bay is known for its underwater paradise~ dive it, or snorkel in the shallows. It is also considered South Africa’s premier game fishing destination. Go turtle~ or whale watching; visit no less than five premier public game reserves within an eighty kilometer radius (not to mention the more than 30 private game farms and reserves in the area).
Explore the uncharted wilderness around South Africa’s biggest natural freshwater lake, that is Lake Sibayi. The varied habitats around the area make it a hotspot for birdwatchers. Up for a thrill? ~ try out the microlight flips, go on a quadbike adventure, paddle on the Muzi pans, or try your hand at spear fishing. Why not try out the stretch of 80 km dune forest in your 4x4, with its secluded beaches dotted along the coast all the way up to Kosi bay?
Or hop 5km across the Mozambican border for a day with a difference in Ponta do Oura. Feeling less adventurous? Why not visit the local delights like the craft markets, health spa, dive museum or art studio. Needless to say~ a laze on the beach with its tropical waters is always beckoning!
Nightlife: Holiday season turns this sleepy little village into a hive of activity~ depending on your taste you’re sure to find a spot that caters for your needs. Whether it be a romantic dinner at one of the local restaurants or a boisterous bash at one of the local clubs.
Health: Mbazwana (13 km from Sodwana) has 3 GP’s, and the closest hospital is 35 km away. Concerning malaria we are considered a low risk area, but the villa is fitted with mosquito nets on all beds.
You will return again, and again, and again.
