Overview of Cliff Lodge

Under a two-hour drive from Cape Town, Cliff Lodge is an idyllic oceanfront retreat situated on cliffs above the whale-watching Mecca of Walker Bay. Close to popular Hermanus and offering dramatic views of Walker Bay and the distant Cape Peninsula, Cliff Lodge is a stylish yet relaxed and personalised Bed & Breakfast on the wildly dramatic Cape coast. The area offers a unique eco-experience: boat trips are available to see a variety of marine species, including whales (in season), great white sharks, Cape fur seals, dolphins and marine and shore birds.

You can keep your feet dry with a stroll along cliff-top paths through fascinating fynbos vegetation to secluded beaches or discover wine farms, golf courses, farm stalls and the charming coastal hamlets of the Overberg, a quiet rural region set in an intoxicating heath-scented landscape.
