Tides River Lodge is a highly recommended B&B with self catering option, providing accommodation in Malgas for tourists visiting the Cape Overberg region.

About Tides River Lodge

Tides River Lodge lies on the banks of the Breede River near Malgas, in the Cape. A short two and a half hour trip from Cape Town and half an hour from Swellendam, on the way to the Garden Route. Privately owned, this peaceful heaven is a birdwatcher’s and fisherman’s dream.

Tides is an oasis in the dry wheatlands of the Overberg, an 'off the beaten track' destination for those who enjoy something different. Tides is without doubt one of the most unique and pristine locations on the Breede River.

Relax on the lawns, fish off the river bank, explore the river, waterski, canoe or visit the bush pub. For the more adventurous there are 4 x 4 trails just minutes away. Tides offers three luxury self catering villas and one boathouse, all are right on the banks of the river and have stunning views, verandahs and braai areas. There is a slipway and jetty so you can launch your own boat.

Verified reviewvery good

I stayed at Tides as part of my first trip to South Africa and loved being so close to the river. The peace and beautiful setting gave my husband and I a wonderful break. The staff were super helpful. We will be back.
