Directions are poor, there is no electricity, and it is very primitive.

Hi, not bad but the advertisement did not show or give a true reflection of the lodge.

Back to nature.

This was our second stay at Scalarhoney Lodge. Love it for its remoteness and off the grid living! You have time to explore the hiking routes or just chill next to the river.

Rustic, off grid, nature, relaxing.

Now this is a location everyone should experience at least once in their lives. It is more off the grid, so come prepared. No signal, which is great as it allows you to fully be present and enjoy the gorgeous mountain views. Although there is WiFi access closer to the owners' relaxing pad, this is created for the people.

Very nice to be back in nature.

What an awesome destination, free from cell phones, TV, and WiFi. If that is your kind of weekend, you need to get away from the city life, it's here. You are right next to a river and the water rushing over the rocks will put you to sleep. The water from the river is the best drinking water I have ever tasted. Andre, the owner, with his second in command, takes care of everything. Thank you for everything. See you soon. PS: We need a few more markers for directions to the lodge.

Woorde en foto's kan nie beskryf wat jy by Scalarhoney Lodge ervaar nie.

Wat 'n wonderlike voorreg om hierdie "stukkie hemel op aarde" te kon geniet. Asemrowende natuurskoon waar jy jouself weer kan vind en André se gasvryheid is 'n wen kombinasie. Ons sal beslis weer gaan en kan dit vir jonk en oud aanbeveel.

What a wonderful privilege to be able to enjoy this "piece of heaven on earth". Breathtaking scenery where you can find yourself again and André's hospitality is a winning combination. We would definitely go again and can recommend it to young and old.

Little cabin in the woods.

Little cabin in the woods with the best bed you've ever seen, cosy and cute and very hidden away.

Rustig en stil tussen die bome.

Wat 'n belewenis om tussen die bome, reg langs 'n kabbelende rivier in die natuur te wees. Basies maar netjiese akkommodasie met alles wat jy benodig vir 'n gemaklike verblyf. Die spoeltoilet tussen die bosse was nou 'n ervaring soos min. Dankie ook aan Brian vir al die behulpsaamheid.

Peaceful and quiet among the trees.

What an experience to be among the trees, right next to a rippling river in nature. Basic but neat accommodation with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The flush toilet among the bushes was now an experience like few. Thanks also to Brian for all the help.

'n Stukkie hemel op aarde.

Water! Tsitsikamma - plek van baie waters. Of dit nou voor jou blyplek se deur verby loop of jy in een van vele waterpoele afkoel. Die watervalle. Heerlik!

A piece of heaven on earth.

Water! Tsitsikamma - place of many waters. Whether it's walking past the door of your place of residence or cooling off in one of the many pools of water. The waterfalls. Delicious!

Absolutely fantastic.

All I can say is if you need a good break to recharge, come here. Beautiful nature, peaceful and lots to explore. Winding down by a gorgeous babbling river and fire with stunning moon rises.

Beautiful view.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to switch off. The waterfalls are a must to hike. Lots of climbing and wet. Still very nice.

Dis nou 'n lekker wegkom van Gauteng vir paartjies! Dis pragtig!

Meer reg in die middel van die natuur gaan jy nie kry nie. Ver weg van alles. Bly by die rivier, gaan hike, gaan swem, braai, slaap knus. Fantastiese plek vir paartjies! Eienaar verskriklik vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Now that's a nice getaway from Gauteng for couples! It's beautiful!

You will not find more right in the middle of nature. Far away from everything. Stay by the river, go hiking, go swimming, barbecue, sleep snugly. Great place for couples! Owner incredibly friendly and helpful.
