5 Of The Best Eco Cabins To Visit In The Cape

Category Lifestyle


Where Bonnievale
Distance from CT 2.5 hours

Setting A 200km drive from Cape Town, this game reserve feels like it's a million miles away. With nothing but an acacia-shaded valley extending to the Riviersonderend Mountains in the distance, and the sound of chirping birds and rustling leaves to keep you company, Melozhori is the ultimate reprieve. Two pods perch on an untouched area of the reserve that overlooks the game-dotted plains beyond, offering an ideal setting for a private escape or romantic retreat.



Where Kleinmond/Betty's Bay
Distance from CT 2 hours
Setting Situated in one of the most beautiful of CapeNature's protected areas, the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, these cabins were caringly designed by architect Justin Cooke. Surrounded by teeming birdlife, untouched fynbos plains and cascading waterfalls. The modern, glass-fronted cabins maximize the awe-inspiring views of a hidden valley within the Hottentots-Holland mountain range.



Where Stellenbosch

Distance from CT 45 minutes

Setting Tucked in the rolling hills of the Banhoek Valley, surrounded by orchards and fynbos, Camissa offers guests a combination of tranquil surrounds and contemporary style. Featuring a selection of Scandi-style lodgings, it promises an unforgettable stay in nature, where 360-degree views of the farmlands and mountains, complete with all the creature comforts, will have you wanting to linger longer.



Where Bot River

Distance from CT 1.5 hours

Setting The "original" wood-fired tub destination, KolKol is a luxurious retreat that appeals to discerning nature lovers seeking to recharge in stunning surroundings. Sweeping views of the Babylonstoren Mountains and the peaceful sounds of nature set the scene for this secluded getaway. Available are three cocoon-shaped Fynbos Pods that take modern design and style up a notch. 


Where Sedgefield

Distance from CT 5 hours

Setting This eco-friendly lodge takes glamping to another level, a few levels above the ground. These spacious treetop suites are made of canvas, wood, and glass, and were constructed in such a way as to minimize the impact on the surrounding forest. In fact, the original suite incorporates the trees into its design. The units are spread out over a wide area to ensure privacy, so if you're looking to escape, no one's likely to find you up here - except the occasional bird or mischievous monkey.
