An almost four-hour drive from noisy Cape Town lies Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, a slice of untouched wilderness in the heart of the Cederberg with a unique accommodation offering. Enhanced by breathtaking views of the stark landscape by day and the starlit sky at night, it’s the sort of place where unforgettable memories are made.
Accommodation comes in the form of 10 man-made cave suites that blend seamlessly into the natural sandstone formations from which they are built. Each has a terrace and is equipped with a double bed and en-suite bathroom.
In addition to the caves, there are five thatched huts, modelled after the dwellings of San clans, who inhabited the area centuries ago. Each has a large bed and en-suite bathroom. Both accommodation types include air conditioning, and coffee-and-tea making facilities.
