Bishop’s Cove Lodge
The uniquely designed Bishops Cove Lodge is situated on one of the most spectacular sites on the Eastern Cape coast, in Tsitsikamma. To the south lies the pristine rugged coast with its ever changing ocean; to the east, a dramatic drop into the forested Boschkloof; to the North, a small stream gurgles through a steep valley hidden by its forest canopy; and to the west, a hill covered with fynbos protects the lodge from the occasional passing cold front. All this within a stones throw of the shaded verandas of the lodge.
