About Tipuana

Tipuana Bed and Breakfast is situated in Grahamstown, which forms part of one of the most diverse ecological regions in South Africa, with thousands of hectares devoted to nature and game conservation and a history seeped in forts, conflict and strife.
We offer two comfortably furnished flats. Each of the flats have two bedrooms. The main bedroom in Flat one has two beds together for a couple and Flat two has a double bed. In the second bedrooms are two single beds each.  Each flat is equipped with a TV in each room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a hairdryer and a private entrance.

The guests have access to a braai area and a swimming pool. Secure parking with an electric fence is available on the premises.
Grahamstown lies at the intersection of four very different climatic zones and its unpredictable weather is part of the excitement of the annual arts festival, which takes place in the middle of winter. The Thomas Baines Nature Reserve, which lies just outside the city, and the Great Fish River Reserve, about 35 km away, both provide a wide variety of bird life.
Grahamstown has its own hiking trail which is a two-day circular trail starting and ending in the city, and there are two other shorter walking trails in town, the Dassie Krantz and Gowie Kloof.
Located on Hellier Street in Grahamstown, Tipuana Bed and Breakfast offers both B&B and self catering accommodation and has been graded three ‘pineapples’ by the Grahamstown Hospitality Guild.
