About
Description
It’s cosy, It’s personal, It’s private. Saxon Lodge offers you a space to be relaxed and refreshed on your travels. Situated above the harbour with everything at your fingertips, literally, with FREE WIFI throughout, More you can sit back and enjoy the view of the ocean, the mountains, the quirky garden and pool over your favourite beverage. We will arrange your dinner bookings, activities and point you to the best things to experience in Gansbaai. Restaurants, shops and bars are within very easy walking distance from the lodge. Wake up to your shark cage dive in Gansbaai feeling refreshed and ready for this amazing adventure – beats waking at 3 in the morning for the big travel to be here on time. Laze away the afternoon after morning activities at the pool, in the garden or in the privacy of your suite or room until its time to dine at one of our fine restaurants. Our rooms are larger than most with individual décor and private entrances giving you freedom to come and go as you please. Less
