Why the name “The Square Elephant”?

Because this uniquely converted shipping container is the same gray colour as an elephant and, like the amazing elephant, it blends seamlessly into its bush environment.

You will feel totally secluded and remote, but, in reality, you're still conveniently close to all tourist amenities. Most guests simply settle in and unwind in the blissful solitude, relax on the recliners with a good book, go for long walks and of course, dream away in the hot tub with glorious, beautiful nature surrounding you in all directions. Then you wish you had booked for another week. Departing is tough... we know.

SALE UPDATE: This amazing 250HA Private Mountain Nature Reserve is for sale. This property the owner's lodge and development rights for tourism. Ideal also for corporate retreat / exclusive private gated community for a consortium, family or investor’s group. Owner retiring after 20 wonderful years of exclusive ownership.

Annað til að hafa í huga
Communications: Free unlimited wifi and good cell phone reception. Most electrical outlets include USB plugs for your mobile devices.

The Square Elephant is totally off-grid. Electricity is provided by solar power. We cannot guarantee continuous power during prolonged cloudy or rainy weather when the sun cannot charge the batteries. We provide lots of lanterns, torches and candles (lovely atmosphere). Stove, BBQ, hot water etc., are gas-operated. The fridge is electrical, so do plan your perishables accordingly in forecast continuous rain conditions.

Weather:
The Western Cape lies in a convection zone, so weather can be highly variable regardless of the season.
Summer days can be hotter on the mountain than at sea level and the nights cooler. Because of the elevation, winds are often brisker. The prevailing summer wind is South East and the deck is largely protected from the wind, making it ideal to sit outside to delight in the views and the sunsets.
Winter days are typically crisp blue skies and nights are brilliantly clear with the Milky Way as you have never seen it before. Winter weather can produce storms, however, and winter nights can be chilly sometimes with gusty winds off the ocean. The deck is largely protected by remote-control heavy mesh blinds that drop down and clip to the deck. These help to keep wind and rain off the deck - perfect weather for the steaming hot tub and hot chocolate or a bottle of wine!

Hiking:
You are invited to hike anywhere on the property. It's fun to walk to the top of the mountain and enjoy the stunning views over Hermanus, Walker Bay and Onrus. It’s about 2.5-hour round hiking trip and may be quite strenuous. Pack a picnic lunch and relax at the top. You can drive up there, but only in a 4x4.

Wilderness:
Enjoy the year-round profusion of wildflowers and pristine fynbos. A number of rare and endangered species have been identified on the mountain, so please take only photos, not flowers.

Security:
The Square Elephant is equipped with an alarm system which is monitored 24/7 by our security company in Fisherhaven. You will be given instructions on how to arm/disarm the system.
