A beautiful view and a peaceful night, apart from the owls which is the kind of "interruption" I don't mind! Our room was beautifully decorated and the breakfast was fantastic. Loved the "shwee shwee" table clothes! Thank you.More

Nice and quiet place, friendly hosts, heated pool. We stayed 9 days and felt like being at home. Thanks a lot! Shopping area and beaches within 10 minutes, good starting Point for the Cape, Chapman´s peak or Hout Bay.

Makapa Lodge is nestled against the Roodeberg Mnt range in the Fish Hoek/Noordhoek valley and boasts spectacular views spanning the Noordhoek Amphitheatre and long wide sandy beach of Noordhoek, Chapman's Peak More and the back of the Table Mountain range. Set in a large, landscaped indigenous garden that borders Table Mountain National Parks on 3 sides. With this wildlife corridor on our doorstep you experience a sense of untouched wilderness. A luxury Lodge offering B&B accommodation in our spacious suites (lounge, bedroom & bathroom) where you have the choice of twin, queen or king beds as well as poolside suites or garden facing. Each with an outdoor seating area. Enjoy a swim in the solar heated pool or relax on a sun lounger under a parasol. We offer secure on site parking and a mouth watering breakfast. A mere 35 min from Table Mountain and 20 min from Cape Point and Boulders Beach Penguin colony. Makapa beats with the pulse of Africa, warm hospitality and personal attention. Less
