Activities & Facilities

There are a number of activities available in the park and surrounding towns.

The park offers a great diversity of flora with approximately 2000 species of indigenous plants, including 100 that are endemic to the area, and over 110 Red Data Book species.  Although most species bloom between May and September, there are flowers to be enjoyed in any season.

This is the southernmost tip of Africa (Agulhas), where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet officially at 34° 49’ 58" South and 20° 00’ 12’’ East. The rough seas off Cape Agulhas were treacherous for early explorers and a number of shipwrecks can be found along the coastline, including the wrecks of the Zoetendal, Birkenhead, Arniston and Meisho Maru 38. 

The nearby Bredasdorp Shipwreck museum showcases the stories and remnants of these fateful voyagers. The Cape Agulhas Lighthouse was built to aid the early explorers and is a museum, as well as the second oldest working lighthouse in southern Africa. Remains of ancient stone fish traps used by the Khoisan people can be seen to the east of the lighthouse.

There are no facilities in the park, restaurants, pubs, shops, banks, and other facilities are available in the nearby towns of L’Agulhas, Struisbaai or Bredasdorp.

What our guests have said about this accommodation

KATHLEEN
We stayed in the new tented camp site and it was amazing from the moment you entered you were treated like a royal .we were 6 and the site only holds 6 and we were the first guest .saw plenty of animals but when you game drive over and you enjoyed your dinner take some time to look at the night sky it was amazing hope to go back one day
Paul George
Second stay at Agulhas national park. Every day was one of the best and we will be returning to this relatively unknown park.
Peter Adelfang
We were very pleased with the cleanliness and appearance of the cottage.The toilet itself still needs to be refastened by maintenance, but the self catering thatch dwellings are very comfortable. We enjoyed the view and the fynbos walks from there. We would go back.
John Crafford
We were a bit early for entering but were received with utmost friendliness and all explained courteously. At the entrance gate on arrival and departure we were treated like royalty visiting for the first time as if they were expecting and waiting for only us to arrive. Sanparks well done. This is how we came to know you The accommodation everything you could wish for.
J P CILLIERS
Very nice chalet's in a wonderful setting.
DAVID BRUCE
Outstanding accommodation. The furniture & equipment is first class.
Bill Skinner
This is the place along the coast where you are the closest to the sea and the comfort and caring staff makes this a venue not to be missed. This is also probably the Southern most holiday house in Africa--We were seven adults and all of us were in agreement that this is therapy for the soul and we should have stayed longer. Well done, Sanparks!
Marlise Streich
Das Haus für 4 Pers. liegt inmitten von Fynboos und Strandnähe. Man hat von jedem Zimmer phantastische Meersicht. Das Kochen fällt schwer, gibt es doch viel zusehen. Die Zimmer sind sehr schön und auf der Terrasse steht ein grosser Tisch, wo man sich mit schönster Aussicht aufhalten kann. Ich habe mich in diese Häuser verliebt.
Douglas Blaine
The cottage surrounds were undergoing building works and tidying up. Tariff should have been reduced accordingly. The area is very pleasant and remote, but little info is available of what can be seen or should be visited nearby. There was no info on the nearby wetlands and interesting looking meandering river, where canoes are available for use by visitors. Despite this being a Sanparks manged area. We enjoyed the cottage and the flamingos on the nearby salt pans.
Carol Hemsley
Very well appointed chalets. Appreciated DSTV because of French Open final and F1 GP! Lovely walks but would like to drive further west along the coast! Should have spent 2 nights at Agulhas, instead of 1! Sign posting in Agulhas itself not very clear.
Pietro Corgatelli
Had the most wonderful stay, have been telling our friends all about it
Emily Morris
A really lovely location and very comfortable and well cared for facility. A pleasure to visit. This was my 2nd time there, and I am sure I will return. Thanks very much!!!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
