Sacred Mountain Lodge took its name from the most hallowed symbol of
Cape Town – Table Mountain. Sacred Mountain Lodge has an enviable
position surrounded by the peaks of Table Mountain National Park on
three sides and the ocean to the front. Approaching from Chapman’s
Peak Drive, the views and sunsets across the waters from Hout Bay to
Kommetjie are nothing short of spectacular!
The inspiration for naming our beautiful guest house ‘Sacred
Mountain Lodge’ came from the book ‘Table Mountain to Cape Point’ by
Carrie Hampton, where in her ‘Sacred Mountain’ chapter she says;
“Table Mountain is known as the most potent symbol of Africa,
representing freedom in every sense of the word, and has been
likened to a fortress, a sleeping goddess, a stairway to heaven, a
guardian of the city, a warrior and watcher of the south, considered
sacred for the living forces at work behind nature.”
We invite you to come and feel the forces of nature here at the tip
of Africa and enjoy our warm hospitality in the peaceful
surroundings of Sacred Mountain Lodge.
