From mountain biking to hiking through the forest to just chilling and star gazing at night, couples and families will delight at this wonderment that is a mere 90 mins from Durban and an hour away from the Drakensberg. This eco cottage is nestled under the mist belt forest on the Minerva Nature Reserve in Byrne Valley. The ethos of Still Living is promoted.

The space
Misty Mountain Meander Eco Cottage in Byrne Valley is nestled just below the mist belt forest on Minerva Nature Reserve. It is a one bedroomed cottage with an ensuite shower. The cottage offers, 180 degree view of the forest and a breakfast deck as well as your own private pebble pond. There is also a sleeper couch which sleeps another two people.
Misty Mountain Meander is a mere 90 minute drive from Durban and 20 minutes drive from Richmond. With just under under 1% of mist belt forest left in South Africa this area offers a unique take on the ethos of STILL LIVING. We offer walks in the magical forest where rare species of trees and flora can be discovered and the endangered blue duiker hide. Bird watching includes gimnogenes and jackal buzzards .
On hot days take the opportunity to cool off in two of their plunge pools fed purely by rain water or swim in the mountain top dam which overlooks the indigenous forest.
For the more active there are undiscovered mountain bike trails and yoga classes with a certified Yoga Alliance teacher.
Evening activities can include stargazing or simply watching the beautiful sunset before snuggling up with your favourite book next to the cosy fireplace.
Foodies may forage in the organic vegetable garden. There is a four plate oven gas stove, a gas fridge as well as braai, skottelbraai and potjiekos options.
The eco cottage is completely off the grid, is solar powered with water supplied from the streams originating deep within the mountain of the mist belt. Misty Mountain Meander is pet friendly.

Optional extras will also include a housekeeper for two hours.
