Saxon Lodge is a highly recommended Gansbaai hotel providing accommodation in 8 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Cape Overberg region.

About Saxon Lodge

Saxon Lodge is a boutique hotel situated in Gansbaai, the world’s Great White Shark capital, in the Western Cape, a short, beautiful, 2 hour drive from Cape Town and Cape Town International airport and an hour from L’Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa. This makes Saxon Lodge a great central point for exploring the Cape Overberg and its natural bounty.


The lodge boasts 9 spacious en-suite rooms, most of which have private view verandas with great sea views. All the rooms have just been repainted and individually redecorated to create a tranquil and restful ambiance - a “home from home” feeling. We have double and twin rooms and 2 family suites for families or groups travelling together.
