The Liferboat

The Liferboat

The Lifeboat is a two-hour trip north of Cape Town on the R27. The house is situated mid-way between the adjoining towns of Laaiplek and Velddrif. The Liferboat offers beautiful views and access to the abundant birdlife of the Berg River.

This very large, comfortable house is built on the canal banks in Port Owen and boasts its own private jetty. Guests can bring their own boat and explore the Berg River for 40 km upriver, or go out into the calm waters of St. Helena Bay. Guests must abide by the rules of the Port Owen Marine Authority.

Boat tours are available on request. Contact Velddrif Information Centre for contact detail.
