MADADENI B&B is based in the Kloof Gorge, cool and close to Hillcrest, just outside the heat of Durban. Come walk in our garden, enjoy the ducks and geese. Relax next to the pool in the forest environment.

Kloof is a leafy, upmarket village 25km (16ml) west of Durban at the top of Field’s Hill. The hill is a key section of the world-famous 90km (56ml) Comrades Marathon run annually between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, the KwaZulu-Natal provincial capital. "Kloof" is the Afrikaans word for "gorge", and Kloof Gorge forms part of the beautiful Krantzkloof Nature Reserve with its rich birdlife including crowned eagles. Access to the gorge simple from MADADENI, with a wide range of walks and hikes from 5 min to 6 hours!


We currently have 2 bedrooms, one room with a QUEEN bed and the other small room with a single bed. There is a QUEEN bed (screened off) in the large lounge area. Currently we can only accommodate up to 4 adults, and only if there are two couples, having 3 beds in total. IF only 2 rooms were required, we would then use the other 2 rooms as an additional B&B.


Limited band width, ALWAYS ON Internet access is available, both as a PC in your lounge and a LAN for a laptop connection. You have your own fireplace and wood from the forest at the end of the garden.

Security is of no concern, with your own CCTV system, controlled gates and of course the geese help too! Park your car in undercover parking, well away from the road. The TV in the lounge is connected to DSTV, with all the usual channels. There is a safe in your room for your security.


A kitchen allows you to prepare that picnic yourself (Stove, Microwave, Fridge, Freezer, Work Area & Sink) or pop out to the shops to pick up a wonderful meal.

We have a small shower, bathroom and basin in a single room and small geyser means you might have to be careful with the hot water.

If you have any questions or would like to know anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.
