Just an hour’s drive from Cape Town and nestled in the heart of the majestic Kogelberg Mountains lies the breathtaking Arabella Golf and Country Estate. Lapping the shores of the Botrivier Lagoon, this estate is home to a variety of spectacular fauna and flora including 147 bird species and the odd wild antelope. During breeding season, the bay plays host to one of the largest whale migrations in the world.
