PERFECT GETAWAY FOR THE NATURE-LOVING AND ADVENTUROUS
The extraordinary Shire Eco Lodge is situated only 6km from Stutterheim in the Eastern Cape Province of South-Africa. Inspired by the desire to create a truly unique space, The Shire captivates you with its innovative design and magnificent setting. From nature-loving adventurous types, to those on business, The Shire promises to soothe, inspire and rejuvenate.
Promoting an appreciation of natural areas and environmental conservation are two key motivations behind the creation of The Shire Eco Lodge. Aiming to be as unobtrusive as possible, the Lodge seeks to minimize its impact on the environment while providing a form of eco accommodation that eases guests into a serene natural environment through setting and architectural innovation.
The luxurious and elegant open-plan chalets with striking curved-glass corner windows rest on the edge of the indigenous Xholora forest in the Amatola Mountains, just a stream ?s hop from the enchanted home of the rare Samango monkey and numerous rare species of plants, butterflies and birds like the rare Cape Parrot.
Each chalet contains a stylish en-suite bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette, as well as its own braai/BBQ facilities. For the more daring kinds, the 2 river-side chalets have their own open bush showers where you can soak and steam among the trees.
Should you be too relaxed to cook yourself, there are a number of restaurants close by where one can dine in the evenings. The Shire Eco Lodge can also cook you a scrumptious and healthy organic meal, all with available home-grown ingredients.
Situated at the base of a beautiful forest, the campsite consists of 16 sites, all with electricity and water points. The unisex ablution block is placed in the middle of the sites and also has additional dish washing facilities.
The Shire Wild Bulb Nursery focuses on indigenous bulbs of the Eastern Cape region, but also grow a number of winter rainfall species from the Western Cape. View the dedicated website and browse their full catalogue.
If your curiosity entices you beyond the bounds of The Shire, the area offers a variety of activities like beautiful hikes to waterfalls, ancient Lemonwood forests, superb bird watching, horseback trails and more. More.
