My mates and I had the best time staying with Tracy and Ruan, who were incredible host! Everyday they provided us with a delicious breakfast of omelettes, toast, papayas, coffee, smoothie bowls, and more! We really enjoyed staying at lodge located just a block from the beach! We got to surf a new spot everyday which always featured big waves and no one else in the line up! We could not have done a proper surf trip without Tracy and Ruan's guidance and local knowledge! Would 10/10 recommend them to anyone considering to take a surf trip of a lifetime!

We spent 4 nights with Tracey and Ru at the end of our one month trip to South Africa and loved every bit of our stay. Their bed & breakfast is perfectly located, close to gorgeous beach, coastal walk and nice and quiet. The rooms are wonderfully decorated with love (exactly as in the pictures!) and guests can feel very much at home. What makes this place very special are the hosts, Tracey and Ru, who will do everything to make you feel comfortable. Besides surf tours, they also offer guided tours of which we enjoyed a small hike to a lovely waterfall followed by a delicious picnic in a beautiful setting next to a river.

We were travelling with our 8 month old baby and both, Tracey and Ru, didn't only help to watch him while we were enjoying our delicious breakfast (what a luxury!), we were also able to get some laundry done and there was no problem in preparing our and the baby's food in the shared kitchen. We also we're treated to a real South African braai which we hadn't tasted yet (yum!) and after cooking and sleeping in a caravan for weeks, we felt very spoiled.

We left Kleinmond with the feeling of having stayed with friends! Thank you, Tracey and Ru!!!

Tracey and Ruan had me for a short two week trip, which has been planned very carefully and contained everything I was dreaming about. They have a great range of activities you can attend, such as game drives, waterfall hikes, ziplining, sandboarding, diving, wine tasting... just ask for anything you are up to, doing in South Africa and they’ll do everything possible to make that happen for you. They’re all about you having the greatest time you can get.
Their breakfasts and food is amazing and if you’re willing to try local food, they’re gonna let you try the greatest South African food one can get. I’ll never forget, how Ruan took me to harvest some snails and mussels around the corner, for our dinner.
I felt really lucky I was spending time with them, with their lovely two huskies and have a surf almost next to the house, when the swell was right to do so. I can recommend everything about Saffa Surf Tours.
