South Africa is a beautiful country. Its landscapes also charming. Many visitors come here to stay every year. Before you go to this rainbow country, we introduce some hotels which are not expensive but they get a great reviews on web.
Tranquility B&B, Nature’s Valley
Tucked into a wide band of protected coastal forest on a pristine Indian Ocean beach, Nature’s Valley is one of the most secluded spots on the Garden Route. Tranquility is a modest but attractive B&B that has been recently revamped by the people who operate the bloodcurdling Bloukrans Bridge bungee jump, a 20-minute drive away. If you’ve taken the plunge, you can spin out the buzz with a little gentle kayaking, surfing or stand-up paddleboarding, or go for a hike through the forest.
Hibisucs Coast and Dolphin Coast
Wailana Beach Lodge, Ramsgate
The twin beach resorts of Margate and Ramsgate in KwaZulu Natal are holiday central, with Ramsgate the smarter of the two. At Wailana, you’re the guest of a Swiss expat and his wife in their large, laid-back house with a sub-tropical garden and a small but inviting pool. Each of the five bedrooms has a private balcony or sundeck; grab The Captain’s Cabin upstairs for the best views of the Indian Ocean. The nearest stretch of sand is just minutes from the door and Ramsgate’s safe and sparkling Main Beach, which has a Blue Flag and lifeguards, is within easy walking distance.
Swell Eco Lodge, Mngcibe
Offering a stylish and serene alternative to the sometimes rowdy backpacker lodges in nearby Coffee Bay, Swell Eco Lodge is a clutch of thatched rondavels on a grassy hillside at the mouth of the Mdumbi river, with sweeping ocean views. Each unit is spacious, with handmade furniture and cute, upcycled touches, such as plant pots and toothbrush holders made from old cans and jamjars. Power comes from a wind turbine, and the lodge conserves mains water thanks to a borehole and rainwater collection tanks. It’s a wonderfully remote spot – at night you’re dazzled by a dome of stars.
St Lucia Wetlands Guest House, St Lucia
Whenever you check into a place to stay in St Lucia in KwaZulu Natal, you’re always warned to watch out for the hippos – they have a habit of hauling themselves out of the St Lucia river after dark to munch on lawns and verges. For the eco-tourists who are beginning to outnumber the anglers in this peaceful village, hippos are, of course, an attraction, as are the loggerhead and leatherback turtles which nest on the Indian Ocean shore. The award-winning St Lucia Wetlands Guest House makes an excellent base, with friendly, considerate hosts, a pool and five homely rooms.
