The Lodge is so beautiful and when we were there it was calm too. So we could really enjoy our time and also have some privat time.

We stayed at Papyrus as part of our honeymoon, and loved it. Of the places we stayed, it was a bit more on the rustic side, and a big strange because we were the only guests (which is what we get for traveling in the off-season) - but it was wonderful. A peaceful, beautiful home base between wine tastings, and...

Having spent some time at Papyrus Lodge last year, this was definitely the place not to be missed on our second holiday in South Africa this year. No regrets at all. Still a hidden gem to be recommended highly. The rooms are kept at a very high standard, the service is still extremely friendly (we were welcomed like old friends),...

We love nothing better than to impress our American colleagues and guests by booking their Cape Town stay at Papyrus Lodge with fantastic hosts Stephan & Kristin Heusser! This time was no different when a team from Orlando, USA came to SA on a fact finding mission. They came to investigate the negative side of our country's issues around aids...

Papyrus Lodge is a quick drive from Cape Town and as wonderful as that is, it's also the downfall. Because Papyrus Lodge isn't far from urban areas, sitting on our deck looking out over the water falls just short of perfect because of the constant hum of traffic :( Apart from the traffic, breakfast is delicious, the hosts are friendly...
