We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of Joburg and Makapa was the ideal place to relax and unwind! The photos on the website didn't do it justice, it was even more perfect in real life! An ideal spot to hideaway away for a few days but also well located should you want to see the sights...

I began my vacation to South Africa (May, 2013) from Cape Town. My plan was to book directly. I also did not want to stay in the downtown area. After interacting with several B&B accommodations in Cape Town, I settled down on Makapa Lodge mainly because of Ian's prompt and detailed responses that gave me all the information I was...

I needed a place to stay whilst visiting relatives and booked The Nest with high hopes. I wasn't disappointed. The Nest had everything you could possibly need and more. It was comfortable, private and near to the flora and fauna. Margaret and Ian were on hand if I needed anything. I took up the offer of a half day birdwatching...

We stayed in Makapa Lodge in March for 3 nights. It is the ideal place for bird watchers and nature lovers. In the morning hours the guinea fowl family was walking through the garden, then the birds came to visit the fountain or the proteas. The location is close to the Cape but also to the beach towns. Margret and...

We spent 4 nights at Makapa Lodge at the end of January 2013. An excellent location as only a short drive from both Cape Point and all the sites of Cape Town with many picturesque towns and fabulous beaches in-between to discover. Ian and Margaret were fabulous hosts and a mine of information of where to visit or eat, when...

Do not take "WIFI" for granted. It come and goes. And if it is there, bandwidth is negligible. That might be true for many places in South Africa. But here, I experienced it to be worse. No clue if one can do anything about it. But before someone will report s.th. positive about WIFI, I will not stay there a...

In the last days of december we stayed in the beautiful Garden Room of Makapa Lodge. The room was nicely decorated and the owners were very hospitable. Makapa Lodge is in a good location and from here you can explore the cape region and Capetown.

This is a very nice guesthouse situated in the hills above Kommetjie. It was lovely and cool, and the views are lovely. The poolside suite is very comfortable, and the host are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are plentiful and tasty. A very relaxing and pleasant stay at the end of our holiday.
