Highlands Lodge is situated in the beautiful Waboomskraal Valley, nearly halfway between Oudtshoorn and George on the N12. The lodge is small mountain retreat on the Garden Route in the Outeniqua Mountains. The lodge has a very tranquil and natural atmosphere with ample bird life, large lawn areas and indigenous trees making it a lush oasis.

The lodge has 16 free-standing wooden log chalets. The chalets are self-catering, but service-on-demand is available on request. Each chalet has its own private entrance, open-plan kitchenette / living area and a braai area outside.

Some of the Chalets has an inside fireplace.

The lodge offers a communal swimming pool area, children's playground and jungle gym. Secure parking next to the Chalets is available.

As this is a mountain retreat there is no TVs in the Chalets or Wifi available.

    "Marie was a stunning host. She was very friendly and helpful, not like the reviews stated. The Lodge has policies to abide by, but not difficult at all. Very peaceful area - picturesque in the mountains, and easy to find with the clear directions provided. We loved it, and couldn't ask for a better host than Marie!"

  • "Highlands Lodge"

    08 January 2013

    "Our stay at Highlands Lodge was very peacefull. It was nice and quite, the grounds were neat and the wooden houses were nice too, however maintanance was/is poor. ceiling fans dont work, bulbs in side table lamps fuzed, carpets very dirty, bedding very poor, pliows full of mildew. we stayed in unit 1 and 5. unit 1 septic tank? was not in a good state and overflowing so the smell of sewage was bad and and in your face all 9 days we were there. We did complain and a repair was attempted but not successful. Even though the camp was not full my family was not moved to another house."

    12 July 2009

    "We arrived Monday 6/7/2009 and had a heartily warm reception. The surroundings were very beautiful and tranquil between the Pine trees. The chalet was in excellent nic and we enjoyed the walks in the mountains. A definite yes for anybody seeking peace and rest close to nature. Your tarriffs are excellent value for money."
