About Ehlathini Guest House

Ehlathini Guest House, is the Xhosa word for “in the forest”, as we are situated in the heart of the Tokai Forest. Within ‘touching distance’ of the mountain, yet only a few minutes from the city, Ehlathini Guest House serves as an ideal base from which to explore or simply a place to relax and enjoy the tranquility provided by the shelter of the trees and mountains

We are situated in a most exclusive, secure area. Just five minutes drive from the chic Constantia Mall’s fashionable shops and restaurants, an easy approach to the freeways gives guests superb access to all of the Cape’s scenic delights. Golf lovers will be spoilt for choice, with championship golf courses situated a stones throw away!
