As part of our honeymoon visit in South Africa we spent time in Cape Town and found our 'home away from home' in Somerset at Çhelaya Country Lodge.
The staff was most welcoming and friendly. They took the extra step to answer questions and assist on all fronts. And went above and beyond what you might expect - assisting with suggestions and arrangements for us in the Cape Town area and other parts of the country.
The lodge has a variety of unique self-catering accommodations, lovely gardens and a secure setting. Very peaceful and a good variety of birds...We also rented car from the lodge which was clean and safe at a most reasonably price.
We enjoyed the time so much we added a night and wished we could have stayed longer!
Many thanks to all at Chelaya Lodge and we plan to return with the family!
