View our accommodation at Zwinoni Lodge
Zwinoni, a Venda word for birds, was conceptualized as a result of a need by discerning tourists and businesspeople to have a home away from home experience.

Nestled in a cul-de-sac in a quiet suburb of Milnerton Ridge, Zwinoni Lodge offers ten elegant and stylishly decorated bedrooms overlooking the gardens, each fully equipped with Satellite TV, a mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities. Fax, internet, and email facilities are available. The honeymoon suite has the added luxury of a Jacuzzi and balcony with splendid views of the Rietvlei Nature Reserve.

The three star graded owner managed establishment itself offers an authentic African experience with a balance of traditional food and African décor. Our guests leave feeling enriched through our culture, experiencing true African hospitality coupled with the richness of its art, history, music and food.

We are situated next to the Rietvlei Bird Sanctuary, a home to more than 180 bird species. Guided walks are gladly arranged.

We are a mere 15 minutes away from Cape Town and the Waterfront. An excellent golf course, Medi-clinic and beaches (Sunset Beach and Dolphin Beach) are just over a kilometre away. Public transport is easily accessible. We are strategically placed between R27 and Koeberg Road both leading to the city centre. One of the largest shopping centres, Century City / Canal Walk, is 5 minutes away. Even closer is Paddocks Shopping Centre which is just 1.5 km away, with Bayside Shopping Centre only 5 km away. A number of excellent restaurants, casino and Ratanga Junction are also close-by.

Scenic walks and bird spotting are only a few minutes away. Parties, intimate weddings and exclusive dinner functions in the peaceful and serene gardens are gladly arranged at Zwinoni Lodge for up to 60 people.

To complete our African theme we have a boma or braai area in which we offer themed dinners. We are a fully licensed operation.
