About Makulu Lodge

Makulu Lodge offers comfortable accommodation to a variety of guests. It is ideal for students or for business travellers looking for a great place to stay. It is located in the vibrant suburb of Observatory in Cape Town.

This lovely lodge has nine well-appointed rooms, of which all have twin beds and en-suite bathrooms. Guests can start the day off with a delicious breakfast at the local café before exploring the city. The lodge is located close to many great restaurants, but there is a fully equipped kitchen available for any self-catering needs.

Guests can visit this city’s many well-known attractions. These include Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and the V&A Waterfront. Observatory itself also has many curio shops and entertainment spots, ensuring that guests don’t have to go too far to experience the culture of the city.

After a day of discovery, guests can return to the lodge to relax in the comfortable lounge before enjoying an evening swim. End the day off in the garden with a cup of coffee while appreciating the bird life.
