Nestled against the Roodeberg mountain range that reaches from Fish Hoek to Kommetjie, Makapa Lodge borders SANParks -Table Mountain National Park- on 3 sides with beautiful views spanning the Noordhoek Amphitheatre, the long wide sandy beach of Noordhoek, Chapman's Peak and the back of the Table Mountain range.
With a wildlife corridor on our doorstep you experience a sense of untouched wilderness with a menagerie of birdlife 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. Don't let me forget about our resident Cape Eagle Owls as well as a troop of Chacma Baboons.
Set in a large landscaped, indigenous garden you are beckoned to stroll through this fragrant garden and it's hard to turn down the idea of relaxing on a shady bench set under the big trees or exploring the little pathways with their nooks and crannies.
It's impossible not to fall in love with Makapa Lodge. A luxury guesthouse offering bed and breakfast accommodation and a most comfortable night's sleep in our spacious suites (lounge, bedroom and bathroom) where you have the choice of twin, queen or kind beds as well as poolside suites or garden facing. Each suite has an outdoor seating area. Enjoy a mouth watering breakfast personally prepared for you by your hosts, Jimmy and Vivienne.
We are situated midway between the Atlantic and False Bay coasts in the Fish Hoek/Noordhoek valley and 35 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and the Table Mountain Cableway.
Returning to Makapa Lodge after a busy day of sight-seeing, or if you are wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and spend the day at the Lodge, you can enjoy a swim in the solar heated swimming pool or relax on a sun lounger under a parasol around the pool where you are protected should the Cape Doctor (south easterly wind) be blowing.
Makapa Lodge beats with the pulse of Africa, warm hospitality and personal attention. Our hope is that you leave with a destination experience you won't want to forget.
