Epic Guest House
Ranked #3 of 10 Noordhoek B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Epic Guesthouse is a very nice place, rooms with a wonderful view into nature. The hosts are very friendly and are happy to support you wih anything you want.
For example: they brought me to a nearby place from where I could do a wonderful horseriding trip along the beach in the late afternoon.
We also went for a nice walk in the nearby mountains, living wild nature from a Close.

Good choice to stay there!

We were a family party of 4 adults staying in 2 rooms overnight for a wedding. The location was perfect as the church and reception were close by. It is in a rural setting but not far from all the shops. We were made to feel very welcome by Sabine and the ambiance is informal but everything was run well. Good position for scenic drives to visit most of Cape Town's attractions if you so wish. Our post wedding Sunday breakfast was great. Clearly caters well for persons with disabilities . Good value for money and would stay again.

Room Tip: Two of the rooms do not have en suite bathrooms but seperate bathrooms just outside each room. So if...

My wife and I just returned from a Safari with Epic Enabled. I use an electric wheelchair and have for pretty much my whole life. We have traveled all over the world from India to the mountains of Alaska, and this trip with Epic Enabled was a dream come true. The staff was amazing, from the office that helped with the reservation, to the guide Alfie and his assistant Charles. They knock themselves out to give you the best trip possible. The animal viewing was so incredible, we saw the big 5 including the highly endanger black Rhino. We came with feet of a cheetah with its just taken down prey. Were up close to every type of wildlife you can imagine. I thought that we would see an elephant or two at a great distance, but we saw dozens within maybe 50 to 100 feet away. It takes your breath away.

The hotel and three different bush camps we stayed at were all accessible and easy to get around in, from raised toilets to roll in shower, Epic was so on top of things that when we checked in to our hotel, Alfie notice the hotel did not have a hand held shower, so he went out got one and installed it himself to make it easier for me. Its not his hotel but he just wanted everything just right.

The vehicles they use was great, you get your chair clamped down and I felt safe at all times.
The vehicle is a bit taller than a regular land rover but that just makes the game viewing better. Now is everything as pristine and ADA (American with Disability Act) compliant as back in California. Of course not, you are visiting a third world country and going out in the the wilderness where lions and rhinos can be seen in their natural habitat, But can you do it? An absolute yes. If you want things just like home, stay home.

We had a total in our safari of just 9 people (3 chair user consisting of 2 quads and one para), and we all did everything everyone else did. When ever we needed help the crew was always there. I never felt scared just enjoyed the thrill of my life. I know that when i considered making a reservation I would have loved to chat with someone with a disability that does not have an interest in the company. You can Email me at docd55@yahoo.com and i can answer your questions or at least try.
Again amazing put this trip on your bucket list and go.

Had a great time in South Africa with Epic Enabled - Joburg, Kruger, private game reserve, and Capetown. Great people and very eay to deal with - as a group we had pre-requested some items of the trip and the guide was flexible and had some great alternative ideas as well - Accommodation excellent , as well as the equipment provided - a great stress free holiday for everyone. Within our group of friends we had peole in wheelchairs, mobility issues, visual impairment , and brain injury -quite a variety of complex personalities however everyone commented on the relaxed, yet smooth running of the tours. For several in the group it was a repeat experience - though when animals are involved there is no repeat experience - each one is different and special at the time to the various individuals. The focus of the group was to view the wildlife and also have the opportunity to get up close to others - which is certainly a possibility at Tshukudu - yes many of the animals have been orphaned and it has been necessary for them to have had human contact but they are not 'tame'. None of the group had any issues with any of the vehicles in which we were transported - they appreciated the efforts of Alfie and Jakes for them to be able to transfer to sit and travel in the usual game drive vehicles -. Capetown Accommodation was five plus star - "absolutely marvellous" was one comment, and the mix of organised tours and free time was appreciated. Everyone had a great time - and some are already saving for yet another trip.
