Makapa Lodge Cape Town
Makapa Lodge: Self-catering Cape Town Accommodation - Bed and Breakfast Guest House:
The guest house facilities include the two bedroom Burrow which opens onto the
pool, The Nest, which is a snug garden log cabin suitable for a couple, and
the Cave which offers luxury double bed and breakfast or self catering
accommodation. The Burrow and Nest are fully equipped for a self catering
holiday and all three units have T.V with M-Net. The Burrow has a lounge with
stone fireplace for added warmth and atmosphere in winter.
Additional Facilities: The sparkling pool leading out from the Burrow is for use by all the guests at the lodge. This lovely outdoor area is wind-protected and most suitable for sunbathing. There are also braai facilities in the pool area. The lodge has secure parking within the fenced property which has access controlled gates. Guests are warmly welcomed to Makapa Lodge by Kees and Hannah Lugthart.
Local Attractions: Central to whale viewing, Cape Point Nature Reserve, Boulders Beach with its famous Jackass Penguins, Constantia and other wine wine routes, Noordhoek art route, Kirstenbosch and many focal points. Horse riding, mountain walks, cycling, yachting, golf etc close by. In season, see the whales at Fish Hoek and take a drive up Chapman's Peak pass to see the dolphins frolic in Hout Bay. But do drive on round the Bay to the fishing village itself and watch the catch coming in. Day trips can be made to historic Simons Town, once a British naval base and now the home of the South Africa Navy, a picturesque yacht marina and great restaurants.
Take a trip to Cape Point Nature Reserve to see the proteas and the baboons or Miller's Point with its famous penguins - that's just 15 minutes away. If you like walking co-owner Kees Lugthart will lead you through the sparkling Silvermine route with its abundance of wild Cape flowers or into the mountains. The famous Constantia wine route is on your doorstep - dine at Stellenbosch Wine Estate or taste wines in Franshoek, where the Huguenots started the Cape wine industry centuries ago. If you love swimming or walking on deserted beaches, there's Noordhoek, Fish Hoek, Clovelly, Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenburg with golden sands stretching as far as the eye can see around the coast.
South Africa's National treasure - Kirstenbosch Gardens are 20 minutes drive towards the city and then there's Cape Town itself where Jan van Riebeck landed in 1652 to found the Cape Colony. Don't miss the Castle Good Hope and the Botanic Company Gardens, which lead to the Parliament buildings. Then head for the harbour and the amazing V & A Waterfront for a myriad of shops and restaurants serving fish and crayfish brought in daily by the fishermen. And all that is just a drive away from Makapa Lodge. Then there are scores of little historic Cape towns and villages to the North and East, which you will definitely have to come back to explore.
