Feature lodge: Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve
Updated: 1 day ago
For those looking to escape the pace and stop the clocks, Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve is 15 000 hectares of beautiful wilderness situated three and a half hours from Cape Town in the Southern Cederberg Mountains; a rocky wonderland of fiery sunsets, pin-dropping silence, and views as far as the eye can see.
Visitors can expect hot summer days, cold winter nights, while spring and autumn come with other delights; a year-round destination that provides an authentic glimpse into the natural world!

The reserve offers an assortment of accommodation from quirky Cave Suites to the more spacious Hut Suites, Camping to Self-Catering, as well as the chance to upgrade to the dreamy Open Air Suites for those special occasions! Good food, an on-site spa, quad bike tours, stargazing and sparkling swimming pools are other reasons to visit this secluded and exclusive reserve and we really recommend a minimum two nights to get the full experience (get the calendars out!)
Once occupied by the Khoi and San Tribes, age-old rock paintings tell stories of a time gone by and fascinating interpretations of these paintings are delivered by your nature guide should you wish to embark on this tour.
Hiking enthusiasts are drawn to the meandering trails of dry, mountain Fynbos, seeking solace in the dusty, red earth with the thrill of spotting wildlife never from sight! Nature drives or sundowner tours offered by the lodge may bring sightings of Burchell’s Zebra, Eland, Gemsbok, Springbok, Bontebok and Klipspringer, with less common sightings of elusive wildlife species such as Caracal, Leopard, and African Wildcat.
For those who enjoy photography, you won't be disappointed as this semi-desert region unravels its canvas to the curious, coming to life as it invites you to take a closer look.
Kagga Kamma is a real treat for every traveler who appreciates unique experiences; please pop us an email if you would like to book this trip, we have included return transfers to Cape Town in our two night package for your convenience.
A very lucky sighting of an African Wildcat during our stay!
