Important Info About Your Stay:

  • Our stunning coastline, Koppie Alleen, is situated approximately 13km from our accommodation.  Those who are fit as fiddles might find a strenuous cycle suitable, alternatively, a drive in your vehicle will take you 25min.
  • The Fig Tree Restaurant is quite the place to be and therefore packed; in high season especially.  Please ensure that you book a table for dinner to secure your spot.
  • Our activities are weather and tide dependant and is best booked by yourself a day in advance or once you arrive. We can also book for you well in advance but bear in mind that the weather and tide will have the last say.
  • Cape Nature does not allow driving around on the reserve after sunset.  We have permission though for driving between our cottages and restaurant once the sun has set.
  • For guests staying in the Opstal area - Most of our guests opt to walk to the restaurant at night; and what a lovely walk it is!  The cottages located the furthest from the restaurant is less than a 10min walk away.  Just remember to carry a torch with you!  Torches are provided in our suites only and not in self-catering units.
  • The nearest petrol pump is a 15-20min drive away and only open Mon-Fri during business hours and until 12h on a Saturday.  Best fill up before arrival in the last town you pass – Bredasdorp, Riviersonderend or Swellendam.
  • If you are self-catering, please ensure that you bring all your supplies.  Our curio shop sells wood, firelighters and meat but it really is a gift shop and not a food shop.
  • Firewood can be purchased at our Curio Shop or you are welcome to bring your own. We provide complimentary firewood in our Suites that have fireplaces only.
