Welcome to Kings Walden

Kings Walden was born of great romantic  spirit. It was here in the 1930’s that a beautiful young woman stood spellbound at the mountain views and said to the man beside her: “I never want to leave”. He was the owner of the land and the view. “Marry me”, he replied, “and you will never have to”.

Many, many years later, on the night she died here, lightning struck the enormous blue gum tree at the viewpoint. It is still standing today, bone-white and dramatic, a symbol of Kings Walden Garden Manor’s magical romantic spirit and history.

Come and enjoy our incredible mountain views, famous country gardens and chic accommodation in a century old, heritage home. Kings Walden combines international excellence and African warmth and legend in a spectacular mountain setting.

Billy and Minette Mckechnie are your hosts at Kings Walden. Having managed hotels in the Okavango Delta and having been in the hospitality industry for many years, they love to share their passion of people, good food and Africa with you. They will be available at any time but spend time at Kings Walden in the morning and in the evening. The afternoon is spend looking for the freshest produce for that days meal.
