Noordhoek is the ideal location from which to explore the Cape Peninsula, minutes away from superb beaches, awe inspiring mountain drives including Chapman’s Peak and Ou Kaapse Weg, and scenic wine routes beginning with the oldest and boldest Constantia Wine lands.
For whale watching in season all along the False Bay coastline, and Cape Point Nature Reserve with their wildlife, particularly the cheeky and fascinating Baboon community; or take a scenic drive to Hout Bay and board a boat trip to Seal Island; and for the more adventurous, go cage diving with the Great White Shark, Deep Sea Fishing or abseiling off Chapman’s Peak!
Not to be missed are Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens’ summer sunset concerts on the grassy slopes beneath the peaks of Table Mountain, harnessing a powerful experience of listening to music.
Visit historical Simonstown and stop en-route to meet the friendly penguins on Boulders Beach. There is also the fascinating fishing village of Kalk Bay and many more beautiful and exhilarating places to see and things to do.
From Sacred Mountain Lodge take a stroll down to Noordhoek Farm Village for lunch and browse around the array of local arts and craft shops. Walk across the way to one of the horse farms where you can enjoy an outride on one of the friendly horses’ take to the trails or head off for a canter along the 8km stretch of white sandy beach, unquestionably an exhilarating experience and one of the best beaches for horse riding in the world!
If its bird watching you’re after, we’re situated in the heart of Table Mountain Nature Reserve with the Noordhoek Wetlands on our doorstep ‘ an incredibly popular location for the bird watching community.

Cyclists and running enthusiasts. There isn’t a more perfect place to take part or view the Argus Cycle Tour or the Two Oceans Marathon; we are situated at the base of Chapman’s Peak – what
more can we say? And for the city folk, if the country life is making you crave a bit of city vibe (it can happen!), well Cape Town City Centre and the infamous Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is only a 30 minute drive. Just remember that our nightlife in the sleepy valley can be just as festive, if not more so. Just ask us where and we will point you in the right direction.

Cape Town Links. 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. lodge, wedding, guesthouse, spa, self catering, holiday, getaway,
