Northern Cape Game Lodge & Resort Accommodation.
Tired of the hustle and bustle of city life? Then the Honnehokke Resort in Hondeklipbaai/Hondeklip Bay is just the place for you! Here you can relax with a book (your own, or one from our extensive library), go for long walks, cycle, have a picnic at the wreck of the Aristea (stranded in 1945), and many more.
Our chalets are homely, comfortable, clean, and fully-equipped. We can accommodate one to six guests at affordable prices.All our chalets have en-suite bathrooms in the main bedrooms, so there is no need to venture outside in the middle of the night.
Established in 1993, the Honnehokke Resort has been pointed out by various magazines as the most friendly holiday establishment on the Namaqualand West Coast:
Each chalet has a private braai area.
Please note that a cleaning fee SHALL apply if the chalet is not left in the same condition it has been found.
Breakfast can booked in advance.
Full DStv is available in the bar and lounge. Bring your own drinks and come and enjoy the rugby with the others. We also offer Wi-Fi at an additional cost.
We welcome your socialized pets, as we know you love yours as much as we love ours. Please provide their own bedding.
We pride ourselves with the fact that we have the only swimming pool in town where our guests, those not brave enough to face the cold waters of the ocean, can cool down. Our swimming pool and entertainment area are now under roof to keep out the famous West Coast wind.
Breakfast is catered for, but booking prior to arrival is essential.
Hondeklipbaai is wonderfully unique and rugged, but this comes with its problems too. Hondeklipbaai is a small town on the Namaqualand West Coast, and actually part of the Namib desert. The town has limited amounts of water available. While all our chalets have hot water thanks to efficient gas geysers, it does sometimes happen that the municipal water pressure is too low to allow the pilot light to ignite. When this happens, we switch over to the backup system which uses water from our own private water tank to increase the pressure and allows the geyser to ignite.
When there are a lot of tourists in town, it does happen that the town’s water supply gets too low and we then have to ask guests to work sparingly with the water, sometimes we even have to limit the times when they can use our tank water. “Save water and shower together:)”.
Some more important information:
Hondeklipbaai can only be reached by dirt roads, which might not always be in a good condition. The shortest dirt road is from Garies, and is 83 kilometers.
We have frequent unexplained and unannounced power cuts.
Cell phone reception and internet availability are unreliable.
