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.

Stanley and Lainy Carpenter have always had a passion for hospitality and after selling their shares in Pontac Manor Hotel, the couple moved from Paarl to Gansbaai. The house in Cliff Street immediately caught their eye and has evolved into a tranquil haven for those guests wanting a peaceful breakaway. The couple have been hosting guests since 2003 and strive to share their knowledge on the abundance of blessings that the Overberg has become known for. The lodge is north-facing which means that you are protected from the strong southerly winds which visit the Cape Whale Coast in summer.
At Whalesong Lodge, a big focus is placed on minimizing environmental impacts and empowering the local community. The Lodge has solar power, a grey water system, LED lights and uses only eco-friendly cleaning products. When it comes to food - sourcing local and wholesome nutrition is the guideline upheld throughout. The Lodge is Fair Trade accredited and actively invests in training local staff. ‘Awakening, consciousness and awareness’ are words used by the Carpenters to synthesize their philosophy.
