The Shak is live again in Eshowe with some great new features!

  1. We are going back to our roots! A largely outdoor experience featuring the long lazy lunch with good food that lets you relax, snack and socialize.
  2. We have partnered with the Sugarhill Manor Guesthouse which makes it ideal for  weekend packages.
  3. We also have a tented camp experience (currently BYO tent) but there will we permanent larney tents soon
  4. There are lots of activities in Eshowe to keep you busy and at the Shak we have hammocks, swings, forest walks, chill spots and a 9 hole adventure Boulle course. Busy Busy or Chill Chill – your choice.

We look forward to sharing this new experience you

WHAT’S HAPPENED @ the Shak recently –

Things got a bit crazy over 2020!
1st we had to close over Feb while I recuperated from a motorbike accident and then we had Coronavirus with no certainty when it will end.
However we haven’t been idle and we have opened a mini Shak in Eshowe and with an awesome tented camp experience at Sugarhill Manor, so, when you need to bust loose after the enforced confinement, what better way than to bring a group of mates to Eshowe for an unusual experience designed to help you let off  bit of steam and to catch up.
Enquiries on 0833034746
Thank you for your support and understanding.
Rgds, Bill

About Sugarhill Manor – a guesthouse that epitomizes gracious Zululand living with a host of activities on offer.
The guest house can accommodate 25 guests with a further 10 in the Tented camp where you can do the Prawn Shak experience, relax in a hammock, tell tall stories around the fire pit, try your hand at some fun games or take in some of the activities in the area (The Dlinza forest boardwalk, Golf, cultural tours and more)



With the advent of COVID-19, operations at Mtunzini have been put on hold until there is a semblance of normality (albeit a ‘new normal’! but we are able to give you a mini Shak experience at Sugarhill Manor in Eshowe.

Ideal for groups of up to 30, we will have some great packages with accommodation, the Shak experience, lots of activities and a an opportunity to reconnect with friends.
The lock down has helped us add to our range of baked breads, foraged salads, some great home brews and an environment that is conducive to connecting with both nature and your friends

What is ‘New Normal’ – The way we see it, it’s about getting back to basics and above all getting that ‘Joie De Vivre’ feeling which has been so sadly lacking as we have watched our economy decline and life got so serious
So kick off your shoes, lose the worries and do ‘stuff’ that’s ‘real’

Sugarhill Manor, 36 Pearson Ave, Eshowe

We look forward to seeing you there
