About Tides River Lodge

Tides River Lodge lies on the banks of the Breede River, near Malgas, in the Cape. It is a short, scenic two and a half hour trip from Cape Town and only half an hour from Swellendam on the way to the Garden Route. Tides is an oasis in the dry wheatlands of the Overberg, an off the beaten track destination for those who enjoy something different. The lodge is located in a sheltered cove, with an island directly in front of the property. Tides is without doubt one of the most unique and pristine locations on the Breede River. Accommodation is offered in four lodges right on the banks of the Breede River, each with river views, a veranda and braai area. Wi-Fi and cellphone reception is available.For bird-lovers, Tides Lodge is centrally situated for exploring the Overberg region and its associated bird life, and several estuaries give birders direct access to a variety of water birds. The Breede River is recognised as one of the best fishing estuaries in South Africa. Tidal action reaches 60 km upstream supporting a rich diversity of fish and birdlife. Fishing can be enjoyed year round in the waters of San Sebastian Bay and the Breede River Estuary, and the area offers an opportunity to catch a wide variety of fish.Tides Lodge has something for everyone and the activities available range from relaxing in a deck chair and enjoying the peaceful tranquility to traversing the challenging 4x4 trails of the Overberg.Tides River Lodge is situated approximately 45 km from Swellendam on a dirt road.

                              Had a fabulous overnight stay at Tides. The view is really beautiful and the surrounds peaceful, a welcome haven.The cottage is comfortable and clean and the surrounds well kept.Daniel is super helpful and friendly.I was incredibly grateful for the fan in my cottage as it was quite hot at night.The gravel road is a bit of a negative, so remember to bring your food supplies with you, so as not to have to venture out unnecessarily in search of a convenience store.Would recommend this spot to anyone looking to stay in this area.

                              Tides River Lodge is a great find in the Southern Cape. Delightful, restful setting on the Breë River. Accommodation good, fresh bread from the shop on the hill a real treat & Andre the manager is most helpful. Fish Eagle boat cruise further down the river is recommended.
