We have stayed at the Lodge on various occasions in the past and have spent a week during August this year relaxing at Bitou River Lodge. It always feel like home from home ! The Lodge is situated on the banks of the beautiful Bitou river, where birds are abundant and where you can rejuvenate body and soul. The rooms are luxurious and all have a river view. You are greeted by birds' songs at sunrise and the owls' call at night ensuring a memorable stay. Sue's sumptious breakfasts with home made scones, or muffins are to die for, not to forget her farm egg -omlettes ! Whilst you enjoy your meal, you have the priviledge to watch the Cape weavers building their nests on the water's edge. After a filling meal you may while away your time by taking a cano, rowing down the clear waters of the Bitou river as it is winding through lush vegetation on it's way to the sea. It is an unforgettable experience to approach birds, undisturbed by your presence and observe them at close range. Bitou River Lodge is situated within close proximity of the most beautiful beaches where dolphins can easily be spotted throughout the year as well as whales during the whaling season. The hosts Sue and Paul ensured that our stay was a memorable experience ! We highly recommend this venue. It is also mentionable that during certain times of the year this resort offers special tariffs, making it an affordable getaway where you can stay in style for less.
