This well established Country House dating from the 1930’s, is situated on a magnificent Nature Estate of 1400 hectares. It nestles in a secluded amphitheatre in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg and is a sanctuary for all who visit.

The nature Reserve has 5 Eco-systems, including indigenous forest, grassland, riverine, mountain and pine forest, which showcase the area's rich diversity of flowers, animals, and bird life.


There are eight elegant on suite bedrooms in the main house and a further eight garden rooms in the adjoining new wing. All have period furniture and each room has its own unique character. It remained true to the ambience of a country home. Some of the rooms have sofa beds and comfortably accommodate children. Most of our bedrooms have balconies, or open into the garden.


The evenings are a time to relax on the terrace overlooking the river or in front of a roaring log fire in the cozy Ingwenya Pub.

The Bend Country House has welcomed guests since 1994 and has provided the setting for many memorable Weddings and celebrations.
