Saxon Lodge is situated in Gansbaai, the world's Great White Shark capital and arguably the best land and boat based whale watching region in the Western Cape. A short, beautiful, 2 hour drive from Cape Town and Cape Town International airport, 30 minutes from Hermanus and an hour from Cape L'Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa, makes Saxon Lodge a great central point for exploring the Cape Overberg and its natural bounty. Wine, Fynbos, indigenous forests, beaches, nature reserves, historically important caves to name but a few!
Situated majestically above the Gansbaai Harbour guests are met with uninterrupted views of Walker Bay and the Hottentots Hollands Mountains and the opportunity to observe a working harbour in action as trawler boats leave and return with their catch.
Saxon lodge offers you a real "home away from home" experience, with a range of cosy, luxury en-suite rooms to choose from, an on-site pub and restaurant, splash pool, communal lounge and FREE WIFI.
Start your evening in the Saxon Arms with a cold local beer on tap or a glass of regional wine, or whatever grabs your fancy, before moving on to dinner in the Saxon Restaurant, Caron creates delicious home style cooked meals based on what is freshly available in the village, so the menu is most often the surprise for the day! And finish off with one of her mouth watering desserts...
