Lekkerwater Lodge is situated in the De Hoop Nature Reserve, the Western Cape’s premier coastal reserve, situated halfway between Cape Town and George / Knysna. This 34,000-hectare reserve and its offshore Marine Protected Area is a melee of fynbos, beach, dunes, deep ravines and wetlands, all framed by the dramatic Potberg Mountains and the Indian Ocean.

The reserve is the largest conserved area of lowland fynbos in the Western Cape. Of the 9,000 plant species found in the Cape floral region, the reserve and its surrounds are home to an estimated 1,500. Between July and November each year, the reserve becomes the breeding ground for the Southern Right whales, and hundreds return to the blue waters every year to mate and calve. 260 species of bird can be found in the reserve as well as the only breeding colony of Cape vultures left in the Western Cape. Add to this the incredible coastline, rock pools, and the plethora of inter-tidal marine life and we had some of the best inspiration imaginable for building a lodge!
