Hlangana Lodge – Welcome to one of the finest small luxury establishments in South Africa, and the best choice for your stay in Oudtshoorn.
Hlangana Lodge is a family run guest house by the Verlinde family, built and founded in 1996.
Our aim and focus is good value-for-money accommodation, offering hotel luxuries whilst still having that personal touch of a guest house.
At Hlangana Lodge we realise that protecting the environment is very important for the long-term success of our operations and that we must protect the resources our business depends upon. As such, we will strive to improve our environmental performance and to minimise any negative impact resulting from our operations.
For this reason we have equipped all rooms with Solar panels and solar geysers to reduce our carbon footprint in our local community and South Africa as a whole.
All cleaning and chemical products bought and used by Hlangana Lodge are biotechnology products and are all completely biodegradable, do not make use of caustic, phosphates, solvents or any other environmentally harmful substances.
Further to this, Hlangana Lodge is a pro-active participator in the development of sports such as cycling in less fortunate local schools.
This has been done by establishing a cycling institute named the JOFA cycling club.
The JOFA cycling club, exclusively funded and run by the Hlangana Lodge team, funds accommodation, clothing, bicycles, food and registration money for these less fortunate children. We recognise the importance of tourism for economies and communities, whilst also being aware of the potential impact on the environments, communities and cultures of the local community in which we operate.
