The name Emoyeni means "place of the wind" in Zulu.

Mid-2007 Kobus eventually acquired the use of a piece of land from the Mbila tribal authority after a two year process following the tribal land process.

In October 2007 we started with the development of the property and completed the first phase in mid December. The kitchen area, ablutions and tented accommodation were completed.The facilities were immediately opened to the public.

In 2008 we built the first en-suite chalet and two en-suit rooms and extended the facilities.

During 2009 we added more en-suite chalets, a pool and a classroom.

More chalets, cabins and facilities were added up to  December 2014.
