About Bezweni Lodge

High up the Hottentots Holland mountain range, amongst hectares of indigenous fynbos, and on a most spectacular spot overlooking the breathtaking Cape Peninsula, sits Bezweni Lodge. This stylish mountain retreat is a haven of peace and tranquility and is the perfect place to relax and unwind, use as a base to explore the Cape or to hold a conference. The lodge features four supremely comfortable and spacious rooms, one Executive suite and our stunning Fynbos self catering cottage.

Part of a large-scale social responsibility project and eco-reserve, we invest heavily in the education and job creation for local staff, and the protection and preservation of the beautiful environment. We have worked hard to restore the surrounding area, and cleared most of the aliens. This work is being rewarded with the return of the fynbos in all its beauty. Many flowers and a large variety of birds can be seen all around the Lodge.

Bezweni Lodge is situated on a private estate only 15 minutes from the beach and Somerset West, 35 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and 50 minutes from Cape Town city centre.

We hope to welcome you soon to this beautiful place we call our home.
