Tribes Service: "Excellent"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"

Accommodation

 
Clarendon Bantry Bay
Clarendon was just wonderful - the rooms were huge (I could have lived there). We all loved this place. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
 
Boulders Beach Lodge
The rooms were very basic and we were all a tad concerned regarding the security aspect here. Staff (afternoon/evening shift) were not helpful and really couldn't be bothered with guests. Morning staff were more helpful. Would NOT recommend.
 
Welgelegen Guest House
Welgelegan was a very nice guest house, the staff were all very helpful. One tip - ALWAYS make sure evening meals are booked ahead!

Our Memories

"One very special memory is a flight over the ocean to see the whales. The guy in charge is called Evan and he's really helpful and knowledgeable. We saw lots of whales from the shore but nothing prepared us for the amount we saw from the air. Highly recommended. "
"We stayed at Boulders Beach - to see the penguins and, of course they were fabulous. However, for a MUCH better penguin experience go to the penguin colony at Stony Point, Betty's Bay - much larger and literally thousands of penguins and marine birds on view. We all definitely preferred this to Boulders Beach."
