Never Daunted: Hogsback, Eastern Cape, South Africa
Never Daunted is situated on the slopes of the Amatolas. It has a beautiful garden overlooking the Hogsback mountains. Indigenous trees, shrubs and flowers form part of a densely planted garden paradise.
Hogsback is enchantingly beautiful during all seasons. There is the
lush green of summer, the spectacularly coloured leaves of autumn and the clear, crisp
days of winter with log fires for a companionable atmosphere. The sudden burst of new
growth, azaleas, rhododendrons and an abundance of flowers announce spring. The dense,
cool mists rolling down from the mountains give Hogsback that well-known mysterious
The peace and tranquility ensures a memorable stay in truly unspoiled surroundings.
Inquisitive Samango monkeys, Knysna louries and many other bird species, which are frequent visitors, add that special touch.
Do join us and experience the magic of the misty rainforest, silver waterfalls and rejuvenating atmosphere.
