About Melkkamer

Melkkamer offers accommodation in three units in the De Hoop Nature Reserve. This World Heritage Site is a marine protected area and is home to a variety of marine life.

From here you are only three hours away from Cape Town and are within easy reach of the surrounding towns and a variety of attractions and activities.

All three cottages are fully equipped for self-catering or guests can drive to The Fig Tree Restaurant at the Opstal for dinner.


There is no electricity and all the units have gas powered appliances, with candlelight and lanterns adding to the romance and charm of this unique area. A generator is available for the Melkkamer Manor House and Melkkamer Foremans Cottage and is switched on at pre-determined times for the convenience of our guests.
