Romantic safari-style stone and canvas chalets on the edge of a natural lagoon make Mosaic Farm a perfect romantic getaway or honeymoon retreat. Set at the heart of the Whale Coast and less than a couple of hours from Cape Town, the farm is surrounded by seemingly endless fynbos on the one side and Hermanus Lagoon on the other: nature lovers will simply revel in their surroundings.

A boardwalk through a grove of gnarled trees brings you to the picturesque lapa with central fireplace, a perfect venue for recapping the day’s activities that could include kayaking on the lagoon, guided hikes and natural trails, a 4x4 beach trip with excellent whale watching in season, or just lazing around the swimming pool watching the light change on the distant mountains. Watch the sun set with sundowners on the beach or take a sunset cruise on Mosaic Farm’s own pontoon boat, an excellent bird watching vantage point.

Traveller Reviews

  • A real surprise was the Mosaic Farm. We enjoyed the accommodation, the setting, and people at the lodge. The food was outstanding. We will fondly remember our time at Mosaic.

  • Mosaic Farm: We enjoyed it here, very quiet and peaceful, though not as near to the whale route as the literature suggested (Never mind, we saw dozens of whales in Hermanus).
