Sophie Cabin

Welcome to Sophie Cabin, an eco-sanctuary just an hour's drive from Cape Town, nestled in the serene landscapes of Rawsonville. Accessible via a winding dirt road that passes through Kirabo Farm on the Le Roux Estate, this retreat offers a peaceful escape and an opportunity to reconnect with nature in its most natural state.

Sophie Cabin is a 100% off-the-grid retreat, powered by solar energy and is thoughtfully designed to provide a warm and welcoming escape. Step onto your private deck and immerse yourself in the beauty of the fynbos, the harmonious sounds of local birdlife, and the presence of indigenous wildlife.

This sanctuary offers a serene escape from typical tourist destinations, providing a space characterized by simplicity, tranquility, and breathtaking natural beauty. Here, time seems to move more slowly, allowing you to savour the peaceful moments, gaze at the moon and stars, and reflect on our shared responsibility to protect the environment.
