Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Western Cape

Enjoy a Personal Experience in Independent Hotels

The range of independent hotels in Western Cape is dizzying. You’ll find unique independent accommodation across the province, from elegant game lodges to cheap hotels right by the beach. Whether you want to stay near the colourful Garden Route or disappear into the wilderness of the Karoo, there will be an independent hotel waiting for you when you arrive. What’s more, you’ll get a great hotel experience – the advantage of choosing an independent hotel is that your Western Cape accommodation will come with a personal touch.

Independent Hotels in Western Cape Game Reserves

The choice of independent hotels in the Western Cape seems intimidating at first, so narrow it down to the kind of holiday you want in the region. Lodges in game reserves are a great way to experience the Western Cape, with options ranging from upmarket rooms that come with private tours of the reserves to more affordable lodges positioned right by the plains. Some of the most luxurious accommodation can be found away from the towns, isolated in the wilderness with only the local wildlife for company.

Spas, Family Entertainment and Outdoor Living

Spa retreats are available for visitors needing tranquil escapes, while guesthouses kitted out with WiFi and TVs are ideal for families on holiday in the Western Cape. Pick one of the myriad options in the Garden Route, the scenic stretch of coastline between Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay, to watch marine wildlife and enjoy access to miles of walking trails right outside your door.

Western Cape Attractions

Visitors flock to Western Cape for its vineyard-covered hills and vivid, wildlife-rich coastline. Spend days seeking out the ‘Big Five’ for a perfect photo of African animals in their natural habitat. Take a boat ride to see whales and dolphins up close. Sip on pinotage, South Africa’s own grape varietal, and dine on gourmet cuisine in mountainous surroundings.

The Western Cape is a diverse and thrilling province. Choose an independent hotel for a personal and unique experience of this spectacular region.
