For the sporty there is sea kayaking, snorkeling, SCUBA diving and beachcombing. Alternatively seek out a shady hammock or hideaway next to the water and just ‘time-out’. You decide!

Cape Cottage


Cape Cottage is Kayak Africa’s own beachfront accommodation in the village of Cape Maclear. It is a beautifully built reed and brick thatched cabana right on the beach within Kayak Africa’s reception compound. The cottage is open plan and features a queen-size bed and a double bunk: ideal for a couple or a family of four. There is a fully-equipped kitchenette and a bathroom en suite with a shower and toilet. On the front deck is a dining table and chairs overlooking the lake; perfect for al fresco dinners. A converted wooden boat projects from the deck to form an ideal sundowner or stargazing spot. Many local restaurants and bars are within walking distance, otherwise you can self-cater, or hire a chef from us and have your meals on your deck. However you choose to do it, this is lakeshore accommodation at its best!
