Hanover Lodge

Hanover Lodge, bed and breakfast, Hanover South Africa between Johannesburg and Cape Town, restaurant, overnight stop.

Hanover is a tiny village next to the N1, halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town, and it is here where you will find the famous Coffee Baa-ar. This Coffee Baa-ar is part of the Hanover Lodge, and is the only restaurant in South Africa that serves delicious, fluffy sheepuccinos, merinos and dorpers. All are the names of drinks are inspired by the main activity in the area: sheep farming. The Coffee Baa-ar also offers home-cooked pub meals and are fully licensed.

The Hanover Lodge is the only Art Deco style building in the town, where the usual Karoo architecture dominates. Hanover is quite an interesting town, having been the place where the famous writer Olive Schreiner lived (you can still visit Olive Schreiner house) and where Zwelenzima Vavi was born (he is the General Secretary of the powerful Cosatu movement). History is still very much evident, as you will see in the donkey carts, the old water channels, and the imposing Duth Reformed Church dating from 1907.
