Fill your heart while staying in Hogsback's little Teepee village on our Animal Rescue Farm! Spending time in our luxury Teepee for a few nights will let you reconnect with the simple ways of life & the magic that surrounds us. Our spot is the perfect starting point to explore Hogsback's beautiful nature with many hikes close by. Each Teepee has a PRIVATE BATHROOM. All proceeds go back into our Rescue Farm and animals. So come and support a good cause, while relaxing body and soul!

The space
We have 4 beautifully hand-crafted Teepee's on the property - FIRE, WATER, AIR & EARTH. You're welcome to check out photos & availability of each of our Teepee's, they're all listed on Airbnb here: www.airbnb.co.za/p/magicalteepees


All 4 Teepee's stand on raised wooden decks, each with their own bathroom facility (shower, toilet and basin) just a few meters walk away. Inside each Teepee you'll find a comfortable king size bed (great for couples) or 2 x three-quarter beds, a super comfy couch, an original Mexican Chiminea that provides an amazing atmosphere & plenty of warmth and loads of fairy lights & paraffin lamps to add extra Magic after the sun has set.

We've built awesome braai spots & fire pits close to each Teepee for guests to really get into the vibe & experience the magic of the mountain!

If you wish to use a kitchen, you're more welcome to use our facilities inside the main house.

Guests do not have to interact with the animals, but are always welcome to give them some love and cuddles too!

We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused, neglected and abandoned animals from the surrounding towns and villages. Our farm is home to an average of 20 dogs, 4 cats, 5 pigs and several chickens on 1.8 hectares of beautiful mountain land, between lush green trees and vast space, creating a home and safe heaven for these animals. Who knows, you might even fall in love with a four legged friend during your stay!

We also have loads of daily visitors, including the Cape Parrot, Knysna Lourie, Samango Monkeys and more...

Guest access
You can make use of the fully equipped kitchen in the main house on the property: Fridge, freezer, stove, oven, kettle, microwave, crockery & cutlery, pots & pans and everything you need to cook a delicious meal is available for you to use.

As much wood as you need for the fire place or braai is available for free.

Other things to note
You will have a solar powered battery block inside the teepee to charge cellphones and run the fairy lights. It's a great idea to bring a headlamp for after sunset hours to find your way to your private bathroom easier. We provide wood for free! No extra charges for refill :)

Location

Hogsback, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Hogsback is a small village in the Amathole Mountains (Eastern Cape, South Africa) with an atmosphere of pure fantasy. Its' magical forests, waterfalls and mountains are perfect for hiking, sight seeing, bird watching and is a botanists' playground! It’s said that the mystical forests described in J.R.R.Tolkien’s famous trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings” was influenced by the Hogsback landscape as his son was part of the Royal Air Force in the region and sent Tolkien detailed sketches and descriptions of the Hogsback forests.

Treat your tummy with delicious food at different little restaurants & quirky hotels, spoil a loved one (or yourself!) with unique hand-crafted items and feast your eyes on special attractions all the way from the beginning to end of the village.

Together with my lovely husband and motivated team, we opened our Animal Rescue Farm in the magical little town of Hogsback, located in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa, high up in the Amatole Mountain Range. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abused, neglected and abandoned animals from the surrounding towns and villages & give many of them safe haven on our farm. We provide quality care for our animals and believe in educating the local community to help make a lasting impact. We are dedicated to helping our community, especially those that can’t afford to look after their animals on their own. We will be actively involved in controlling cat and dog over-population in the area by arranging “spay campaigns”. We are currently setting up an education program with local schools to teach children more about their furry friends to help change their way of thinking and acting towards animals. Ultimately, we believe that education is the key to making a lasting change. To grow from where we are, to help more animals and their humans, to educate the young generations and rescue more animals in need, we need your support! Please consider staying in one of our Magical Teepees when visiting Hogsback, the proceeds go towards helping us make a lasting impact on our community & caring for animals in need.
