The Exquisite De Poort Country Lodge is located 17 km en route to the world-famous Cango Caves which is situated in the foothills of the majestic Swartberg Mountains, with breathtaking views of green valleys and hills. The lodge is owned and managed by Leon, Rita and Leorita Groenewald and offers the discerning traveller homely and comfortable en-suite accommodation.
We offer eight en-suite rooms, a dining hall and bar, off-street parking near the rooms, a salt water swimming pool, beautiful natural scenery and an invigorating hiking trail. Each of De Poort’s rooms was named after the wild animals that can be found in the area and every room is decorated individually to enhance the atmosphere of a traditional guest home.
By prior arrangement, home cooked meals are served South African-style and by lamplight. We specialize in delicious ostrich fillets and traditional Karoo lamb. A sustainable full English breakfast is served every day to provide our guests with energy for their daily activities.
