We offer 3 en-suite rooms with private access from an elevated deck with magnificent views of the forested valley towards the lagoon and the Heads.

Our self-service breakfast consist of fruit juice, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, cereals, eggs, bacon/sausage, mushrooms/tomato, toast, filter coffee and a variety of teas.

The lodge is set in an indigenous garden which attracts a variety of bird life. We also have a separate guest lounge with full DSTV, info centre and an extensive ‘explorers’ library.

We had a nice stay at Cape Explorers. Everything was exactly what to expect from the information on the website. Clean and cosy. Thank you for hosting us.

We had a great time. Very friendly people, who went the extra mile for us and stayed up late waiting for us to arrive. The lodge is beautiful and breakfast was great. Thank you Liezel and George for giving us your best! Damion and Moirlet Burger

Liesel welcomed us heartily and we had everything we needed. My husband loved the coconut cookies and the hot chocolate was lovely. Everything was neat and comfortable.  Liesel was very accomodating and said I could still come and shower after the half marathon even though she knew that it was going to be well after 10:00.
