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.

The Breede River supports a rich diversity of fish and birdlife. Birding is excellent and you can expect to see fish eagles, ospreys, kingfishers, oyster catchers, blue cranes, flamingos and many more.

Fishing can be enjoyed year round in the waters of San Sebastian Bay (30 kms away) and right on your doorstep at Tides. Water skiing, wake boarding and tubing can all be done with your own boat. The Breede River is famous for river rafting which can be done with a trained guide at Felix Unite.

Tides has a riverside lapa where you can entertain a group with your own braai or potjie, ideal for Christmas or Easter celebrations. Nearby is the Boathouse pub which you can get to by boat or car and enjoy their famous pizzas.
