Gaikou Lodge offers bed & breakfast accommodation on a 16-hectare private property at the foothills of the Langeberg Mountain, walking distance from central Swellendam’s shops, attractions and restaurants.
The luxury units with their great feeling of space will invite you to relax to the cooling sound of bird song and running water. From your private veranda, you will have breath-taking views of the mountains, river and forest. Tranquillity and fresh air in an artfully landscaped setting will ensure that you will want to linger
When you are able to tear yourself away from the lodge, we will direct you to the best attractions in the area, including the Drostdy Museum, Bontebok National Park, whilst easy day excursions can be enjoyed to Cape Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa and site of numerous ship wrecks, and De Hoop Nature Reserve, where you can view game and explore the golden seashore. A day trip to Witsand via Malgas on the Breede River offers an opportunity to cross the river on the only man-powered Pont in the country.
