Frequently Asked Questions: Activities

Are activities included in bookings?

Activities will need to be booked separately but can be enquired about up front when booking as assistance will be offered.

What activities do you offer in winter and summer?

Please refer to our activities page.

Do guests get discount prices for activities?

Unfortunately not, as these are booked directly with suppliers in order to suit your needs. If there are any specials, you will be made aware of these.

If we do not want to book an activity, are we still allowed to use equipment on site?

At this point, there is nothing supplied with the house. Should this change then these will be shown on the site.

Is the house close to restaurants?

Yes, between 1km to 25 km depending on your preferences.

What happens in the event we cannot make it to a scheduled activity?

Each supplier will have their various terms and conditions as well as direct contact information for this.

How far in advance do I need to book activities?

We would suggest as far in advance as possible but also allow for flexibility due to weather and holiday spirit giving you some freedom of planning

Should I have my own transport?

It is ideal to have your own transport. This can be hired in Cape Town, at the airport or locally in Langebaan. Airport shuttle to and from Langebaan can be arranged. There are no local taxi or transport services in Langebaan itself and there is no public transport in this small town. Best to hire a car either in Cape Town on arrival in Langebaan itself. Help can be provided. As this is a small town, you can get around by (hired) bicycle but be warned – the house is at the top of a hill!
