Plan a trip out to these eco-cabins in Cape Town

The great thing about eco-cabins is that you don’t have to give away luxury for an eco-friendly experience. These five eco-cabins still gives you the comfort of a hotel stay while nestled in mother nature.

Underhill Farm

This upcycled guest farm gives you a hearty experience in the Overberg. Each cottage serves as a green oasis with windows and doors made from recycled materials – and nothing purchased new. “Wine bottles become windows, pallets become furniture and discarded planks become walls and ceilings” as they say.

Riverstone FamTin

The Riverstone FamTin takes a modern spin on container homes. It’s fully furnished with high-end pieces, a built-in braai and an outside dining area granting you a farm stay still with luxury. The view of the Mostertshoek mountain peak at night is to die for. On your stay you get to learn and grasp farm life and the daily rhythms of staying off-the-grid.

Rocherpan Nature Reserve Eco Cabins

The eco-cabins at the Rocherpan nature reserve are a tranquil escape in a fynbos-covered haven. The eight cabins are fully equipped for self-catering and all come with their own unique feel. The clean and functional architecture gives even more of a green feel to your nights spent in the wilderness.

Oudrif Cottages

Breathe in crisp morning air while the sun rises in your Oudrif cottage. The cottages blend into the natural landscape, with no vegetation harmed in the making of these gems. Solar energy is used to light up the cottages and pump water – as they operate with sustainability at the forefront of what they do.

Farm 215

A 20km drive from Gansbaai then a final stretch down a gravel road you’ll find Farm 215. The secluded retreat invites you to turn away from the daily grind of life to soak in tranquillity around the biodiversity of rich floral species. The fynbos suites and homestead rooms are spaced out and give the perfect privacy and seclusion.
