Just two hours’ drive from Cape Town, guests will find themselves frolicking in this watery arena of steamy pools, while enjoying all the benefits a resort-style holiday has to offer. Avalon Springs offers more great activities such as hiking, teeing off on the mini-golf greens and a tennis court.
A large sandbar separates this shimmering lagoon from the Indian Ocean, providing a protected area for a variety of watersports. While staying at the lodge, the thriving town of Bilene is just a short walk away with its small but colourful market features fresh produce and brightly-coloured capalanas (sarongs) that fill each rustic store.
Set on the edge of the Crocodile River, this is just the place to sneak off on a safari holiday for two, three or more. There is enough space here for families and friends, thanks to the carefully considered self-catering rooms and suites, ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms.
