As a bit of background, Hogsback was recently voted one of the top ten most beautiful places to visit in South Africa. The Edge Mountain Retreat has 20 acres of lovely gardens, and is surrounded by cliffs, dramatic views and indigenous forest.

The area is also steeped in history, and in the 1800’s, it was from these very cliffs along the Hogsback escarpment that the Xhosa warriors descended into the Tyhume Valley to engage in battle with the British Frontier Troops. One of these battles was the famous Christmas Day Massacre of 1850.

Herewith is some general information on our two conference venues, the larger Vula Vista Venue and the more intimate Tasting Room.

Should you have any special requirements for your group, we would be happy to negotiate specific packages.

VULA VISTA VENUE

This lovely venue has spectacular views over our Labyrinth (one of the largest in the world), the Tyhume Valley, and for a 100 miles beyond. It is the perfect space for functions, training, strategic planning workshops, conferences, Yoga workshops etc.

The venue is light and spacious, and is suitable for about 80-90 people. The space is approximately 15 X 7 meters and has ample ventilation, excellent lighting, and 8 double power points. It has a beautiful covered deck with steps leading down onto terraced lawns and garden. There are ablution facilities and the venue is wheelchair friendly. Since our aim at ‘The Edge’ is to provide a gentle, peaceful and relaxing environment for our guests, we regretfully can only accept functions that will not disturb the tranquil environment that we wish to preserve. Wifi is available in the venue.

The Tasting Room

This pretty little venue forms part of the courtyard outside our restaurant. It is approximately 4 X 6 meters and has a lovely wooden deck. It is suitable for small groups of up to 16 participants. This venue is used for wine tastings, private dining, writing workshops etc.
