We have just returned to the UK after spending a month travelling around the Western Cape in South Africa - and by far our favourite place was the Cliff Lodge in De Kelders, next to Gansbaai.
Such an incredible location, with breathtaking views of the ocean, cliffs and the whales! The accommodation was perfect, everything we could possibly need, they had thought of! And breakfasts were just wonderful, on the deck with fresh coffee, fruit, pancakes, bacon... watching the Right Whales swim past with their calves. Just magic.
Gideon, Gill, Finn & Murphy were the perfect hosts, and had even booked us into restaurants when we arrived. Our first night we went to 'Kloofs @ home' just up the road, and had one of the best meals in our whole month in SA. So good we went back the next night too!
I just wish we could have spent more than 2 nights here - it really was idyllic and nothing could be faulted. I hope we dont' have to wait too long to go back.
