Welcome you to the Somerset Lodge as the new owners. Having spent much of their life in the United States they decided to head back to sunny South Africa and take over ownership of the Lodge. Thys and Karin started to work immediately to upgrade the lodge and to make the environment even more comfortable for their guests who are both local and international travelers. They invite you to come and stay at the lodge and experience true South African hospitality in one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa, the Western Cape.
