EKUKHANYENI CHRISTIAN RETREAT & GUEST HOUSE is home from home, where people from all walks of life are welcome to experience nature at its best, in a tranquil and comfortable setting. Ekukhanyeni means “The place of light” in siSwati, one of the 11 official languages of South Africa, and is managed by Ian & Stephanie Milne, who have built it into what it is today.  Over the years it has grown into a well established Guest House, mainly thanks to Stephanie’s continental background and passion for food, resulting in a wonderful blend of home-cooked, and yet innovative food. 

GUEST HOUSE: Ekukhanyeni is based at the foot of an impressive mountain cliff , nestled in the midst of natural and man-made forests, and is blessed with much peace and serenity. Relax in the comfortable lounge in front of a crackling log fire, unwind lazing around the sparkling pool, or go for a brisk walk up the mountain.

DORMITORIES: The dormitories are rustic in design and are ideal for school, sports or church camps. 2 large dormitories, boys & girls ablutions and a facilitators room for supervision purposes. Meals served are nutritious and plenty – just what hungry kids need after an active day. Ekukhanyeni can cater for larger groups and hosts the following: CHRISTIAN RETREATS: Ekukhanyeni is ideally suited to retreats and times of quiet solitude.
