Property Description

African Array is nestled between a biome of Fynbos on a high cliff overlooking a beautiful valley with spectacular mountain and ocean views, the world famous Robberg Peninsular and the historical Jakkels Kraal dairy farm home to the Griekwa people.

Relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view while watching the fish eagles dive into the Roodefontein dam or just hover over head right in from of you.
The sunsets and sunrises is most amazing and not to be missed while staying at African Array.

You feel like you are miles from civilization even though town is just a stone through away. Laze in the hammocks scattered around the garden under trees and hidden from everyone else, so you can have a nice relaxed time without being bugged.

The hostel has WI FI and is available all around the garden on the deck and is FREE. For those guests who don't have their own laptop we have a terminal available.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be ordered at the bar and the beers are always cold.

    This is a great place. Amazing views. The only downside is that it’s a little remote, so one must have a car to be able to go out to the city and get food etc. They do have a very nice kitchen and a restaurant, but the restaurant is a little pricey. But over all, still an amazing place!

    Great place! Love being able to curl up next to a fire and get to know other travelers. They had problems with the water so it was a little brown and there's no heat here so be prepared for the cold if you travel in the winter months.

    Really beautiful setting, with views of the coastline and an amazing sunset every night by campfire. It was a bit quiet when I was there but there was still a nice atmosphere amongst the few travellers. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    The view from the patio was just breathtaking!! Also lots of areas to hang out and get to know the other travelers. Everyone working there was very helpful and made me feel at home. I was in a short trip, wish I had more time to stay.

    We drove to the location and did not like the long dirt access road out in the middle of nowhere. This location was not suitable for our needs. Staff very welcoming and helpful and view is wonderful! But way too far away from everything. Would not like to drive that road when it rains. Canceled reservation and moved down the mountain into town. Staff and owner extremely gracious and helpful with letting us make this last minute change. Very grateful for their hospitality and support!

    We stayed for 4 days, the staff was very helpful and accommodating. They offer meals that are generous in portion and delicious! The view from the patio is beautiful!. The interior could use some updating and a safe in the room would be nice. But overall we had a wonderful stay.
