Cape Lodge began as a home.
A protea farm, to be precise, with asparagus and free-range chickens. Thirty-five years ago Caves Road wasn’t the spine of south west tourism that it is today. Distances were greater and conveniences, less. But the shape of the land was resonant, and it was that call that drew people to come and then to stay. Owners of what was then the Birdwood Farm likely couldn’t have imagined the shift in global attention to their little piece of paradise: the evolution of 80 rustic acres into a property that halved in size but more than doubled its presence.
The Cape Lodge of today has changed a lot, and not at all.
