Enjoy an unforgettable escape with your furry companion at one of our scenic pet-friendly accommodations across the Western Cape.
A holiday isn’t a holiday without being able to share it with the whole family – furry members included. There’s nothing worse than having to drop your pup off at a doggy daycare for weeks on end, and thank goodness you no longer have to! Seeing your pet in their element as they play and explore the sweeping landscapes of farmlands and coastal towns – far away from the hustle and bustle of city centres and the noise of traffic – is just as rewarding as enjoying it for yourself.
The Western Cape region of South Africa is filled with a selection of scenic stays immersed in nature, that ensure both you and your pets experience an unforgettable break. From contemporary homes on the beach and eco-cabins in the mountains to quaint countryside retreats and gorgeous glamping getaways, Conservio has a Cape escape perfectly suited to you and your furry companion.
