Avani Lodge Private Nature Reserve near Botrivier is a place of sheer peace, silence and tranquillity.
A private wood-burning Hot Tub at each unit, hiking routes and a communal cool pool and Sauna to share.

This beautiful and quirky self-catering development hides itself in the fynbos-covered hills and valleys of the Botriver area. Hiking up the hills, the beautiful views extend to reveal an area rich in fynbos, vineyards, olive groves and rolling grazing fields.

It is hard to believe that one can exit and escape the hustle and bustle in just one hour’s drive from Cape Town and only seven kilometres from the N2 via the Swartdam gravel road.

The accommodation units seem to have risen from the earth like the mushrooms they are aptly named after, as if not to disturb the environment. Each of the cosy and quirky straw-bale and cob rondawels offer a spacious double bed sleeping area, bathroom & shower with a view, kitchenette, basin & toilet and an outside braai.

The shared facilities include a swimming pool next to the quaintest wooden sauna which one needs to crawl into. Opposite the pool, there is a larger kitchen with all the necessary appliances for more serious cooking than in the rondawel kitchenettes.
