Conveniently located, it boasts easy access to the N1 Freeway, the famous Cape wine-lands, excellent golf courses, Cape Town CBD, Medical Facilities and only 8.6 Km from Cape Town International Airport.

The owners Deon and Johann offer guests a place to unwind, a place to relax and rejuvenate and a place where you will feel at home. Our lodge is also rumoured to boast the best breakfast in town (just what you need to start your day) All 8 bedrooms are decorated to an extremely high standard offering 100% Egyptian cotton linen (400 thread count) and include all the necessary facilities as well as a full DSTV Bouquet.

I went to De Tijger in December in the midst of lockdown. When we got there Deon and Johan made us feel welcome and safe. We had the cleanest of rooms and the most amazing hospitality. The breakfasts were out of the world and they catered for a vegetarian amazingly. It felt like we were at our parents place. They took really good care of us. This would be our new home away from home in Cape Town. If ever you in Cape Town I think this is a place to stay. Bravo to Deon and Johan on their amazing hospitality.

If you're looking for a good base to rest whilst on holiday in Cape Town you would find it impossible to get a better valued proposition. The hosts are extremely hands on, without being intrusive. Fast Wi-Fi, good sized rooms, a courtyard to relax, breakfast menu changes daily and personal dietary preferences are accommodated.
