Kathe is a lovely hostess, the lodge itself is beautiful, and set in gorgeous surroundings. Breakfasts (good and plentiful) on the patio with an awesome view was the best way to start a day of sightseeing. My only (minor) negative would be that the cottage lacked a good clean, but the staff were so friendly, I'm sure had I asked... More

I don't normally write reviews but the manager of the lodge, Käthe, made us feel truly at home so I felt compelled to do so. Her warm welcome and great recommendations for restaurants and activities ensured that we made the most of our short visit. Our room was immaculate with a stunning view of Constantia. Breakfast was of the finest... More

We stayed at Ikhaya Safari Lodge for 13 nights in January 2015 and had the most incredible fun. Kathe Philips and her wonderful family could not have done more to make us feel totally relaxed and really at home. The accommodation is supremely comfortable and up market so Ikhaya has the feel of an elegant luxury boutique hotel . Having... More

We had a absolutely wonderful stay at Ikhaya Safari Lodge in Cape Town in October 2014. We were there 8 days and enjoyed every single second. The Manager Käthe Phillips is a great, warm host who does everything for her guests to make them feel at home. We spent quite some time together, had good conversations and a lot of... More

A private location on Rhodes Ave with endearing hospitality and large comfortable lodgings. Staff and meals memorable and the manager/hostess ever helpful. Recommended for a quiet retreat on private grounds in a bit of a time warp. Seems many of the former lodges in this area have sold out to megabuck rehabs and been converted to private estates. Best with... More

What a fantastic establishment! Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ikhaya - beautiful views, privacy, conveniently located, lovely rooms. Excellent service from the manager, Kathe, for whom nothing is too much trouble! So helpful and our meals were outstanding! Will definitely be returning and telling others! Highly recommended

We stayed 3 nights over NYE 2013/2014. Really great spot and view from the terrace. Friendly staff, who served us breakfast in the morning. Yves was really kind and assisted us with every question we had :-) If you like to play tennis, there is a tennis court in the garden and also a small pool (which is unfortunately cold).... More

It seems that we were quite lucky with the choice of our accommodation in Cape Town / Constantia. Ikhaya was a good choice. First of all, it was not that easy to find a place for the whole family who wanted to stay together over Xmas and New Year's Eve. Ikhaya offers enough privacy for everyone. The rooms are quite...

Very nice location. Garden rooms have a very nice view. Constantia is a perfect location to visit Cape town and its surrounding and stay in a calm place. Yves and all the staff are very friendly and helpful.

We booked a day prior to our arrival via booking.com two rooms for 4 people. When we arrived the owner told us that he had mixed up something and that there was only one room available. As the room was very spacious we decided to put in two beds. The facilities and furiture are very safari like- lots of game-... More
