Cederberg Ridge Wilderness Lodge: A Modern African Farm Stay

Cederberg Ridge Wilderness Lodge: A Modern African Farm Stay

Blissfully isolated and uniquely local.

Stealthily tucked into the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, Cederberg Ridge is an intimate nine-roomed lodge, where warm, emotionally intelligent service, sumptuous accommodation and delicious food coalesce to create an unforgettable stay.

But it’s the lodge’s unrivalled setting – on a 3 000-hectare fruit farm in the heart of the Cederberg Wilderness Reserve – that knocks it out of the park. Characterised by untamed landscapes, red-sandstone mountains, ancient rock art and flaming sunsets, the Cederberg emanates a kind of otherworldly majesty and sacred solitude you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world.

And even though the town of Clanwilliam is a mere eight kilometres away, the hotel’s surreptitious perch on a mountainside creates a sense of utter seclusion where you can – G&T in hand – soak up the raw and rugged beauty of the untamed surroundings.
