Situated just 20 minutes on the East London side of Grahamstown, half-way between Capetown and Durban, Coombs Lodge is a unique and special bush-camp that can accommodate up to sixteen guests.

The main complex is a stone and thatch bush lodge, with two bedrooms set adjacent to the main Lounge and Living area, connected by thatched walk-ways. Nestled in amongst Eastern Cape valley-bushveld the Lodge teems with a variety of bird species and small game. The core living area has a comfortable lounge and dining-room, an open-plan kitchen, a sheltered braai area and a shaded deck looking onto the Lodge pool.

Accommodation comprises a twin and double room with en suite showers and toilets at the main Lodge.

The Cottage and Camp are set privately, adjacent to the main Lodge. Both are separately listed and can be booked independently of the Lodge.

The lodge is set on 80 ha and is stocked with small game. We are not a Big 5 type reserve with lions snapping at your heels, champagne game drives and the like - it's do-it-yourself territory. We are self-catering only, and guests are responsible for all their own cooking and entertainment around the pool and braai.

The Lodge is easily accessible to Grahamstown and its schools and University and it is an ideal venue for hosting small special functions and family gatherings.

23 Reviews on Coombs Lodge

We had a wonderful stay at Coombs Lodge - it was such a treat to see Nyala eating close by, as well as viewing black springbok and white blesbok. Jeremy was a wonderful host. The place was spotlessly clean. We will DEFINITELY be back!

The luxury tent accommodation was great.

A wonderful place, in the middle of nature. We went for a walk and enjoyed the sight of the gnus, springboks, blesboks, etc. Perfectly quiet and pleasant. The house has everything you need, to cook, etc. We wished we could stay longer than one night. But, well, please keep the place in order to let other travellers enjoy it !

Fabulous weekend spent in the bush, the camp, kitchen, lapa, safari tents and bathroom are pristine and clean. Jeremy is a caring and courteous host who went out of his way to help us. I suggest more signage to find the tented camps, and making the steps down from the kitchen into the lapa a bit more pedestrian friendly, but otherwise, this was an awesome and highly recommendable place to stay.

The seclusion is amazing and the morning hike fantastic. Except for some exceptional spider activity getting us full of spider webs the whole time, it was a fantastic experience.
