The EcoLodge at Greyton is situated in the heart of the village of Greyton, in the foothills of the Riviersonderend Mountains and bordering on a nature reserve. Greyton is only 30kms off the N2 on good tarmac roads, and approximately 140kms from Cape Town.
Greyton EcoLodge (formerly Zebra Moon Backpackers and Hikers Lodge) is run by Greyton Transition Town (GTT), a registered non-profit organisation. The Transition Town movement began in 2006 in the town of Totnes in the UK as a means of bringing a community together to find local solutions to the global challenges of peak oil and climate change. There are now nearly 3000 transition communities worldwide and GTT is the only official one in South Africa. It is our aim to support ourselves and other South African communities in the transition to a sustainable future with less dependency on fossil fuels and greater resilience to rising fuel and food prices.
As part of our focus we ask all guests to be mindful of energy use, water use and to comply with our waste program with recycling and composting
