Perfectly situated midway between Port Elizabeth and East London and halfway between Durban and Cape Town, Mansfield Reserve and Lodge lies nestled amongst 1000 acres of lush undulating grassland and thornveld plateaus.
Vegetation is typical Eastern Cape sweetveld and bush with the landscape and kloofs providing ideal habitat for rare cycads, sneezewoods, yellowoods, Cape milkwoods, white ironwoods, pearthorn and knobthorns to name but a few. This combination of sweet grassland, thornveld and densely wooded valleys make this reserve unique and an ideal game reserve.
Eagle's Nest is an open plan log cabin with beautiful, panoramic views over the Kowie River.
The cottage is self-catering, and all linen, cutlery and crockery is provided. There is a small gas fridge as well as a small gas stove for food storage and preparation. Braai/BBQ facilities are available - braai wood, firelighters and matches are included. As the cabin does not have electricity, lights are battery-operated and paraffin lamps are made use of.
The cabin is equipped with double bed, bunk bed, shower (hot water powered by an old-fashioned donkey-boiler) and toilet.
