Nice and quiet place, friendly hosts, heated pool. We stayed 9 days and felt like being at home. Thanks a lot! Shopping area and beaches within 10 minutes, good starting Point for the Cape, Chapman´s peak or Hout Bay.

Set in a large, landscaped indigenous garden that borders Table Mountain National Parks on 3 sides. With this wildlife corridor on our doorstep you experience a sense of untouched wilderness. A luxury Lodge offering B&B accommodation in our spacious suites (lounge, bedroom & bathroom) where you have the choice of twin, queen or king beds as well as poolside suites or garden facing. Each with an outdoor seating area. Enjoy a swim in the solar heated pool or relax on a sun lounger under a parasol. We offer secure on site parking and a mouth watering breakfast. A mere 35 min from Table Mountain and 20 min from Cape Point and Boulders Beach Penguin colony. Makapa beats with the pulse of Africa, warm hospitality and personal attention. Less
