At one with nature

Our guests really enjoy the fact that, even when you are indoors, because of the large expanse of glass, you feel as if you are out there – at one with nature.

Private setting

The setting of Igababa is very private and every effort has been made to ensure that the walks that other guests have access to do not impinge on this privacy. The cabin consists of a large bedroom/living area with a fireplace and a separate kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom has a toilet, basin and shower.

The cabin can only accommodate two people in a double bed:

  • it is not suitable for children.
  • It is electrified and is fully equipped for self-catering:
  • all the cooking utensils you need; a four-plate gas stove; a microwave oven; kettle; toaster etc.
  • There is a braai stand and a fireplace on the ground in the braai area.
  • A reasonable amount of firewood is provided together with firelighters, candles and matches.

To ensure maximum privacy the cabin is not serviced: should you wish servicing on a week day this can be arranged at a small extra fee. Linen and towels are provided. All you need to bring is your food and drink.

There is a large timber deck off the front of the cabin and a braai area adjacent to the kitchen under a thorn tree. There is a black 2m x 3m wallow pool adjacent to the verandah. Under the trees, with a stunning view of the mountains, is a luxurious oval double bath: delightful even when the mist comes down! The cabin is a no-smoking zone, smokers are kindly asked to smoke outside. We regret no pets allowed
