Elana, our two young daughters & I live 500m from the secluded villa, on our 120ha nature farm. The staff is a Malawian couple & no-one else lives for miles around. Only one group is hosted at a time - we keep our distance to afford guests complete peace & privacy, but are on call 24/7 to take care of all your needs. Guided hikes & drives in the surrounding area are among several options. We love making music and living in the moment, close to nature, off the grid. We strive to be self-sustaining and to leave the world a better place. Our favourite destination is Morocco, where we found many of the windows, doors, grilles & decor used in our buildings. The last 12 km to our farm is dirt road, the last 3km is rough mountain road - accessible by sedan with at least average road clearance and good tyre tread. For less experienced drivers an SUV or bakkie (farm pick-up) is recommended. My motto: "First, peace of mind." Elana's motto: "Disconnect to reconnect"
