Nestled against the Roodeberg Mountain range and bordering SANParks on 3 sides, Makapa Lodge is situated in Capri Village in the Fish Hoek/Noordhoek valley with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Chapman’s Peak. Positioned mid-way between the Atlantic Ocean and False Bay coast, we are a short drive to the beaches of Fish Hoek, Kommetjie and Noordhoek.
Makapa Lodge offers luxury B&B Suites and a comfortable self-catering cottage. We are only 35 minutes from the Table Mountain Cableway and V&A Waterfront. We are ideally located for Cape Point Nature Reserve (Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve) and the famous African Penguins at Boulders Beach. Close too are Constantia and other wine routes, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and many other areas of interest. Horse riding, golf and bird watching are also within 10 minutes.
The Poolside Suites lead out to the solar heated swimming pool where you can swim and relax on loungers under parasols. Take a stroll through the 2500 sq m indigenous garden and don’t miss the opportunity of a sundowner on the deck in front of the Breakfast Room where you will be treated to a spectacular sunset. The Lodge has secure parking within the fenced property which has access controlled gates. Free WiFi is available to our guests. The beautiful, large landscaped garden with its pathways and seating areas, beckons guests to wander through and survey the indigenous plants and local birdlife. With a wildlife corridor on our doorstep you experience a sense of untouched wilderness with a menagerie of bird life and wild animals that include Mongoose, wild Tortoise, Striped Mouse and at night Porcupine. You might even be lucky enough to see a Cape Grysbok grazing on the mountainside and Dassie on the rocks overlooking the Lodge. And then there's our resident Spotted Eagle owls and a troop of Chacma Baboons.
