About African Array Lodge

African Array is nestled between a biome of Fynbos on a high cliff overlooking a beautiful Valley with spectacular mountain and ocean views, the world famous Robberg Peninsular and the historical Jakkels Kraal dairy farm home to the Griekwa people.

Relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view while watching the fish eagles dive into the Roodfontein dam or just hover over head right in front of you. The sunsets and sunrises is most amazing and not to be missed while staying at African Array. You feel like you are miles from civilization even though town is just a stone through away. Laze in the hammocks scattered around the garden under trees and hidden from everyone else, so you can have a nice relaxed time without being bugged. The hostel has WI FI and is available all around the garden on the deck and is free. For those guests who don't have their own laptop or smart phone we have a terminal in the reception you are welcome to use and stay in contact with your loved ones.

Breakfast Lunch and dinner can be ordered off a menu at the bar and the beers are always cold. Dinners must be ordered by 4pm in order for us to provide good food at a reasonable time. In order for us to give you an authentic African experience we will serve traditional meals at night. Should you like to cater for yourself we have a fully equipped kitchen making it easy and comfortable.

We have a array of activities. Bungy from the highest bridge, swim with seals or dive with sharks, skydive over one of the world's most beautiful drop zones. Hiking some of the most amazing coastal hikes in the country, the Robberg Peninsular is a must see.

We recommend two nights stay.
