About Highlands Lodge Mountain Retreat

Highlands Lodge is situated in the beautiful Waboomskraal Valley, nearly halfway between Oudtshoorn and George on the N12. The lodge is small mountain retreat on the Garden Route in the Outeniqua Mountains. The lodge has a very tranquil and natural atmosphere with ample bird life, large lawn areas and indigenous trees making it a lush oasis.

The lodge has 16 free-standing wooden log chalets. The chalets are self-catering, but service-on-demand is available on request. Each chalet has its own private entrance, open-plan kitchenette / living area and a braai area outside.

Some of the Chalets has an inside fireplace.

The lodge offers a communal swimming pool area, children's playground and jungle gym. Secure parking next to the Chalets is available.

As this is a mountain retreat there is no TV’s in the Chalets or Wifi available.

This is a nice quiet place to recharge your batteries from a busy city life. It is centrally located, only 20 km from George and 40 km from Oudtshoorn.

Family friendly: We have a jungle gym and swings for small kids. Some of our chalets also have bunk beds for children.

Lodge should maintain all cabins properly taps were all wrong way round, staff were not very accommodating when asked questions, braai places should be more built up so as to not cause a forest fire and fireplaces should be maintained as it seems as tho it was falling apart, mattresses should be cleaned properly as the main highlight of my stay specifically was the fact that u got eaten by bedbugs

Everything, just the roads need serious attention, will be booking again. Thank you. It was the best holiday that we have had.

The most guest unfriendly establishment in South Africa. Rule book of many pages with threats for non-compliance. Bathroom is a disaster and kitchen is useless. Should be closed down.

We will recomment this lodge to friends and family. Thank you Martie for your friendly welcome and assisting us while we stayed there.
