About The Bend Country House
Situated in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu Natal and in the heart of the Midlands Meander, The Bend Country House, set in a Private Nature Reserve of over 3,500 acres, offers an exquisite blend of accommodation, intimate pub, log fires and warm hospitality in a colonial tradition dating back to the 1920's, when The Bend first became renowned for its gracious style.
The Bend is a place of striking natural beauty, magnificent scenery, an abundance of both bird life and game, extensive indigenous forests and the lovely Mooi River, who's waters are rich with wild trout.
It is in this setting that you are able to practice outdoor pursuits ranging from the gentile art of fly fishing and birding to hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and paragliding. Alternatively, The Bend offers the ideal base from which to explore the arts and crafts studios that comprise the Midlands Meander, thus ensuring that there is something for every visitor.
