There’s nothing better than waking to the sound of crashing waves, rustling palm trees, birds and jibbering monkeys. There’s a wonderful historical charm here, and a warm and friendly welcome too, that had me feeling right at home...as the Lady to the Manor born.

ABOUT Botha House

In a tranquil setting overlooking the Indian Ocean in Pennington, KwaZulu Natal, Botha House was built almost a century ago by Sir Frank Reynolds as a gift for his good friend Louis Botha, the Boer War General and first Prime Minister of South Africa.

This gracious home offers four spacious air-conditioned bedrooms upstairs, with the original furniture throughout the house, and two smaller Courtyard rooms outside, as well as three newly-built Garden Suites. Breakfast on the patio overlooking the coastal forest and Indian Ocean. Guest lounge with DSTV. Set in 210 hectares of indigenous coastal forest, including the highly ranked Umdoni Park Golf Course. Enjoy golf, birding and leisurely walks. Walk to the nearby beach and village.
