Lekkerwater Beach Lodge situated in the De Hoop Nature Reserve, one of the most glorious coastal reserves in Africa.Lekkerwater Beach Lodge offers a homely and comfortable beach experience in a magical setting. Each of the seven rooms is located right on a six-kilometre stretch of private beach, complete with stunning rock pools and fish life. Eat dinner on the beach with the sand between your toes and the region’s finest wines on the table.
This untouched area is extraordinarily beautiful and blissfully secluded. It is a place that everyone is talking about for lots of reasons. The reserve is famous for some of the best whale watching on the planet when, from July to November., Southern Right whales come here in their hundreds from Antarctica. You’ll experience some of the world’s best land-based whale watching straight from your bedroom! Sizeable pods of dolphin frolic in front of the lodge all year round. The pristine rock pools are teeming with marine life while Cape leopard tracks have been seen on the beach. This is the ultimate land-based marine safari destination.
At the main area, expect the same fabulous views and a wraparound deck from which to enjoy them from. An interactive, open kitchen is at the heart of the lodge and guests will dine, family-style, at the indoor tables or outside, feet-in-the-sand style, on the beach.
This is a nature lover’s paradise – you may be lucky enough to spot a rare Cape mountain zebra, bontebok, rhebok and even eland. Leopard and caracal are also said to live in the area but are much harder to spot. It’s also one of South Africa’s most important birding areas with over 260 recorded species in the reserve.
