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 where you have the choice of poolside suites or garden facing, each with its own outdoor seating area. Enjoy a mouth watering breakfast personally prepared for you by your hosts, Jimmy and Vivienne.

Whether you are here for some rest and relaxation, a tourist who can truly hand pick your favourite things to do and see or on a business are guaranteed a destination experience you will not want to forget.

Please let us know if you are celebrating a special occasion so that we can go the extra mile to make your stay just that much more memorable.  After all, we want to exceed your expectations.


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 amphitheater, the long wide sandy beach of Noordhoek, Chapman's Peak and the back of the Table Mountain range.

Makapa is an ideal location as a base to explore the Peninsula as we are just about as near to the centre of the Cape Peninsula as you can get.  Midway between Cape Town City Centre and Cape Point north to south and midway between False Bay in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the west.

With a wildlife corridor on our doorstep you experience a sense of untouched wilderness with a menagerie of bird life 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 Dassies on the rocks overlooking the Lodge. And then there's our resident Spotted Eagle owls and a troop of Chacma Baboons.

Set in a 2500 sq m 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 explore the little pathways with their nooks and crannies.

Returning to the Lodge after a busy day of sightseeing, 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 be blowing.

As the sun sets and you are feeling relaxed and in a state of peaceful happiness,  enjoy a drink while you listen to the last of the bird song and watch the spectacular, ever changing sky fade over the Atlantic ocean behind the coastal mountains.

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.


Activities in the area, stuff to do and experience in and around Cape Town

The Fairest Cape in all the world offers many interesting places to visit and activities to do.  It doesn't matter what your age or your level of fitness is.....there is something for everyone.

Cape Town is never out of season, with a particularly good, long summer from November to March where you enjoy 11 or more hours of sunshine each day.  The average summer temperature is 25 deg Celsius with the months of January and February being a little higher.


Cape Town's winters (June to August) experience an average temperature of 18.5 degrees Celsius.  It's not uncommon, however, to enjoy a week of sunshine temperatures ranging between 21 and 26 deg Celsius.

You are spoiled for choice without having to travel terribly far distances to hand pick your favourite things to see or do.  Table Mountain is undoubtedly one of the city's biggest attractions but we are proud to offer you Nature and Adventure, Shopping, Wellness, Arts and Culture, Nightlife and a whole host of places to see and things to do.
