Sewula Gorge Lodge is one of those places in Africa that one never forgets and remembers with delight. Built in a gorge, along a river and at the base of a waterfall it is the ultimate getaway. This four star, fully serviced, self-catering lodge may only be used exclusively by one guest party at any time. It is on a commercial beef and game farm between the towns of Estcourt and Mooi River in KwaZulu Natal and within the listed Rensburg Koppie Natural Heritage Site.

Spending time in this magical place makes one’s stresses and concerns melt away. The warm and grateful comments in the visitors’ book are testimony of its impact on guests. Sitting on the wooden decks whilst the river flows timelessly by, one hears the sounds of nature, the Gymnogene call as it tends its nest, the bark of the Bushbuck, the choruses of the frogs and the jackal cries.

Swim in the river, play under the waterfall, take scenic walks, bask in the sun, immerse yourself in the history surrounding you, and take in the spectacular bird life, fish in the river or bass fish in the dam. The Drakensberg, Battlefields and Midlands Meander.


The Rensburg Koppie National Monument, a tribute to a battle from the Zulu-Boer War in 1838, trenches from the Anglo-Boer War in 1899, the 160 year old wagon road and a fortified Iron Age Man Site dated from the 14th Century, form a circle of history around the Sewula Gorge Lodge.

Meals are easy in the modern and superbly equipped kitchen, or braai next to the river. The mundane household chores of washing dishes, setting tables, cleaning and making beds, are discreetly done by the pleasant and well-trained staff.

Visit Sewula and experience a place in a setting so beautiful it sings to your soul.
