In the Elands River Valley, 60km from Port Elizabeth, Sand River Lodge is found on 220ha of indigenous flora and fauna, and offers eight comfortable and private tented units, each sleeping two. There is also a bunkhouse that sleeps eight.
Plentiful hot water is supplied by solar power (there is no electricity), and there is gas. On the lower level of the communal area there is a swimming pool and braai area overlooking the beautiful Winterberg mountains.
The area offers superb walks, hikes and running. Recently, a 20km running trail was completed for beginners and experienced runners, criss-crossing loops on the trail giving the option of short runs or the full 20km.
