Slip into an African fairy tale at the Mantis and the Moon - one of those magical places you might not ever want to leave.

Escape into a wooden jungle village set amidst wild banana and papaya trees. Tumble into dreamtime in their famous en suite tree-houses. Chill out in a secluded bungalow and stargaze from an open-air bath. Channel your inner warrior in a traditional tepee, or make friends with the monkeys in a tree-house dorm. If you’re looking for something more private, stay in a beautiful 12 sleeper tree-house mansion with a 180 view of Umzumbe Beach and experience the most magical sunrises.

A crystal clear Blue Flag beach, with lifeguards and shark nets, is a mere 2-minute walk away. Enjoy warm water swimming in the waves and rock pool, gnarly surf and sensational snorkelling. Share an unforgettable sundowner in the company of whales and dolphins.

Play a game of pool, blackjack or kicker as the music lifts your spirits in the rustic Jungle Bar, then slip down the rasta slide into the enchanted rock pool below. Read a book on one of four sundecks or chill areas, or sip on a cocktail and soak up the sun in the secluded jacuzzi.

Rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit with enriching yoga experiences in the hand-built glass studio. Surprise your sweetheart with a melting massage, or spoil them with funky clothes from the Jungle Shop.

Get extreme with the highest gorge swing in the world (165m), white water rafting, abseiling, hiking and the longest zipline in Africa (4.5km). View wildlife by car or horseback, jump on an ocean safari or dive into an underwater world and swim with sharks and manta rays.

Hungry? Enjoy a healthy breakfast or delicious dinner from homemade pizza to fresh fish braai’s, or DIY in their well-equipped kitchen. Sip free tea and coffee all day.

Sound like a dream? Mmm. Who says that dreams don’t come true…
