Eat - Sleep - Relax - Enjoy

Whalesong Lodge is located on the rocky cliffs of De Kelders in the Cape Whale Coast. Guests can enjoy spectacular views of Walker Bay and the surrounding mountain ranges while indulging in what is undoubtedly one of the best landscapes on earth. The Lodge is the ideal place to relax, unwind and connect with nature - making things like television an unnecessary commodity. Between the months of June and December the bay is frequented by Southern Right Whales which spend lazy days nursing their young and froliking within meters of the shore, making this tranquil lodge the perfect land-based whale watching spot. The owners of Whalesong Lodge pride themselves on the special attention they pay to the finer details needed to ensure that theirs is an environmentally friendly guesthouse. This petit lodge has an intimate feel and can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests.
