About Crayfish Lodge

Crayfish Lodge, located in Gansbaai in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, will offer you some of the most amazing sea, mountain, and fynbos views in the country. With only five suites guests are promised an intimate, relaxing experience where comfort is of the utmost importance.

Crayfish Lodge has two Panorama Suites and three Atlantic Garden Rooms, each offering its own private patio with stunning sea views over the ocean beyond - completely clear and undisturbed.

Guests are served a full health breakfast buffet daily, offering a great variety of fresh local produce to please any palate, which they can enjoy on the main balcony overlooking the sea or inside the comfortable lounge.

Crayfish Lodge Setting

Gansbaai stands out as possibly the most renowned coastal destination within South Africa, only 30 minutes from Hermanus. Its origins as a quiet fishing village with a modest population have given way to a vibrant hub of tourism, drawing in countless domestic and international travelers from across the globe. Tucked within the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, Gansbaai is divided into various sea-facing suburbs and is a haven for whale watchers and nature lovers.

The sparkling sea. The expansive mountains. The varied fynbos. You simply won’t know which way to turn as you enjoy the spectacular views from your balcony at Crayfish Lodge, all while enjoying your comfortable, stylish, and luxurious room. This is the only place that can offer you an amazing shark-viewing adventure in the morning, a coastal hike in the afternoon, and a peaceful walk on the beach as the sun sets.

Crayfish Lodge impact highlights

At Crayfish Lodge they care about the natural world around them and strongly believe that everyone should make an effort to conserve our environment. With this mindset, they put sustainability and quality forward wherever they can. The lodge uses local products to minimise its carbon footprint and it use organic produce where possible. This includes both animal products and their use of organic fruits, vegetables and grains that reduce your intake of harmful or even toxic substances. A positive side effect is that most of the time the quality of this organically farmed produce is great and so it all tastes better, too.
