About Pongola Tropical

Pongola Tropical is located in the sub-tropical town of Pongola, which is situated in the heart of the prosperous sugar cane plantations of Northern KwaZulu-Natal. Pongola is also the last residential stop on the way to the much sought-after holiday destinations of Kosi Bay, Sodwana Bay, Mozambique, and Swaziland.

Pongola Tropical is easily accessible from the N2, and its lush garden hosts numerous species of bird life. The guest house boasts a full complement of four-bed chalets, well suited for all - the weary business traveller looking for that home away from home, group travellers seeking refuge after hours of travelling and even those young at heart.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Pongola Tropical offers barbecue facilities where guests can sit back around a roaring fire and enjoy the peace and tranquility under a star-filled African sky.

The directions were difficult to follow as some roads were not named.

This is the second time we have stayed at Pongola Tropical. We had a wonderful overnight stay and will be back again next year.

Very enjoyable stay. My only suggestion is that they improve the route instructions-difficult to find. I would recommend Pongola Tropical to anyone wanting self catering accommodation in Pongola.
