Olifantbos Cottage

Olifantbos Cottage

Possibly the most special accommodation available in Cape Town, this unique getaway is located deep in the southern part of the Cape of Good Hope and offers guests complete seclusion right on the beach.

The main cottage has three double rooms – one master, two with 2x ¾ beds, a fully kitted, gas-fuelled kitchen, a bathroom with a gas-fuelled geyser and an open plan lounge and dining area complete with a cozy fireplace. Linen is provided.

For warm summer evenings there is generous patio and braai area with a boardwalk leading to the beach.

For larger groups there is an annex that sleeps an additional six people – one two sleeper and one four sleeper. The annex has its own bathroom.

As the light are solar powered and water is sourced from tanks guests are asked to conserve energy and water.

Overseers Mountain Cottage

Overseers Mountain Cottage

The Overseers Cottage can accommodate up to 16 pax in two fully equipped and self-catered accommodation units. Due to the location of this facility, all visitors need to make arrangements with the Platteklip Wash Houses prior to arrival with regards to porterage and arrival time on top of the mountain at the cottage.

Please note this is hiking accommodation and all visitors need to hike up and down the mountain.

Slangkop Tented Camp

Slangkop Tented Camp

Nestled within indigenous Milkwoods, no more than 100m from the sea, this marine-themed tented camp is the perfect location to watch the sun sink in the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated at the edge of the quaint village of Kommetjie, the camp offers a nature-based experience with the convenience of shops and restaurants close by.

This is also the only camp with a dedicated play area for small children.

Smitswinkel Tented Camp

Smitswinkel Tented Camp

This tented camp, situated just over the road from the entrance to Cape Point, lies in the shade of a weathered Flowering Gum plantation. Its location provides the ideal base from which to explore the wealth of attractions in the South Peninsula. Boulders Beach, home to the world-renowned colony of African Penguins, is just 15 minutes drive away.

Smitswinkel Tented camp is not within the Cape of Good Hope Section of the park (Cape Point) and conservation fees are payable upon entry at Cape Point gate.
