About The Hatchery

Situated about 15 minutes drive from Mtunzini and set against a backdrop of a beautiful river and overlooking a nature reserve, island and deserted beach The Hatchery was originally a prawn breeding facility and it now makes for a unique destination for any visitor to the North Coast.

The facility has been ‘lightly’ renovated - the end result is a unique blend of comfort and rustic cool. The Hatchery is all about chilling out, letting loose and reconnecting.
