Ashanti Lodge, Cape Town: a Baz Bus Port o’ Call

Ashanti Lodge is a veritable Cape Town landmark, rising in grand Victorian style behind a large yellow perimeter wall in the city bowl, and offers far, far more than accommodation – as the gigantic overland vehicles that are usually parked outside its gates subtly hint.

Ashanti is a local launchpad for all manner of adventure into Africa, from nips down the coast to long-haul overland safaris. The lodge has an in-house Travel Center – solutions for every travel challenge are guaranteed. The accommodation, meanwhile, rates consistently high in backpackers/hostel surveys.




Best of all, Ashanti is a Baz Bus port o’ call, so finding it’s a cinch.
