Little Gugs

A secret hideaway, nicely positioned between the forest, grassland and ocean in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa – Little Gugs has various Maputaland experiences for guests to enjoy. The incredible thing about this secret hideaway is that guests can explore the area at their own pace.

The camp has just four rooms, each with amazing views. Little Gugs is the tropical retreat you have always wanted. Not so far from Gugulesizwe Camp, Little Gugs is run separately so guests can enjoy their privacy, intimacy and peace. The shaded braai area is ideal for relaxed coastal evenings under the date palms, as the stars come out and your day is touched by tropical magic.
