About Whalesong Lodge

Whalesong Lodge is a boutique guesthouse situated in De Kelders, Gansbaai, not more than 2 hours from Cape Town in the Western Cape. The lodge has luxurious and homey accommodations, offering four standard rooms and one honeymoon suite. Whalesong Lodge is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, and gives you space to unwind and recharge. Each of the rooms has private decks boasting beautiful views over the Walker Bay beach and beyond to the Kleinrivier mountains.

Whalesong Lodge was designed to make the most of the amazing views over Walker Bay towards Hermanus and Cape Point. The lodge has a roomy open-plan lounge and the dining room is divided by a freestanding fireplace. A huge glass folding door takes you to a wooden deck with a swimming pool overlooking the ocean. For the cooler months, there is a fireplace and a great selection of South African Red Wines for guests to enjoy.

Whalesong 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.

There are many outdoor activities to do in the area such as fat biking, hiking, horseback riding, birding and much more. Whalesong Lodge is very intimate and perfect for couples or small families. Nothing beats the raw energy of a Cape Storm sitting in front of a cosy fire while enjoying a drink of your choice, and Whalesong Lodge always aims to make your stay a memorable one.

  • Amazing Sea Views From Our Room

    We had an awesome time at Whalesong Lodge with my husband. We loved waking up to beautiful sea views and sometimes we would spot whales from our room-magical! We honestly loved everything about the lodge.

    Our highlight during our stay at Whalesong Lodge is our room! Our rooms were very homely and cosy. We also loved the fat biking activity offered in the area. We have always wanted to do it and we have the best time of our lives.
