Hi! Chris and Claire Wilkinson and our daughters, Kate and Emily welcome you to Our Little Family.
We’re very relaxed people and we offer a very different accommodation and conference setting. Our rambling 1950s farm house, with parquet floors and fascinating old furniture, is surrounded by large grounds and dozens of trees, ranging from Natal Mahoganies to a magnificent Leopard tree which all regularly shed their #$*& leaves into our large pool. We acquired the house in 1997 and it was converted into a B&B in 2002.
Chris owned and ran a game farm in Northern KwaZulu Natal during the eighties and early nineties where he accommodated international and South African hunters/visitors. Claire was a dolphin trainer at the old Dophinarium in Durban. Collectively, we have lived and worked in the Durban area for over sixty years and are able to help you find your way around.
The house (away from the B&B accommodation) is busy and bustling, with a menagerie of animals. We have always shared a love for animals and currently (at great expense) feed four dogs, five cats, two tortoises (the male is a sex maniac!) and a horse in Shongweni. We understand that guests might not have the same sentiments about animals, so they are kept away from guests until we know how you
