Unique Holiday Destinations Western Cape

Nature Sets the Scene for a Unique Western Cape’s Holiday Destination

Our nature resort, tucked away in the heart of the rugged Cederberg wilderness, is a truly unique holiday destination, situated in the interior of the glorious Western Cape Province of South Africa. Why do we and most of our visitors describe our establishment and its surroundings as being unique? Guests who have stayed at Kagga Kamma have sent us glowing testimonials about their singularly enjoyable holiday experiences here in the Western Cape’s Cederberg. Even so, we do not use the word “unique” loosely or lightly, and we are happy to clarify what we mean.

Cederberg Mountain Accommodation

Accommodation Amid the Cederberg Mountains

The Cederberg Mountains mean different things to different people. Some will immediately think about rooibos tea, that delicious, healthy brew made from this bountiful little red bush with which the Cederberg has blessed South Africans (rooibos is now also exported). Rock climbers and those who live and love to boulder adore the Cederberg Mountains, where they can do their thing to their heart’s content. Artists, historians, and archaeologists – amateur or otherwise – are fascinated by the outstandingly well-preserved rock art paintings that survived for all to view, evidence of the presence, culture and beliefs of the ancient San people who dwelt and hunted in the area eons ago.

Cederberg Nature Reserve Accommodation

Variety of Accommodation Options in the Cederberg Nature Reserve Area

South Africans have always loved and been extremely proud of their country’s super selection of game and nature reserves, which has also been a major drawcard for visitors from overseas, and it’s not surprising. Being accommodated in a completely natural environment, away from one’s usual routine and everyday surroundings restores one’s balance and inner peace. However, the country’s designated conservancy areas are about as diverse as the visitors who are attracted to them and wish to immerse themselves in everything each reserve has to offer as well as the natural wonders of Africa at its best.

Cederberg Mountains Luxury Accommodation

Luxury Accommodation in the Heart of the Cederberg Mountains

Everyone who has ever been to the Cederberg mountains or is in any way familiar with it knows that this wonderful inland West Coast terrain is most accurately described as rugged and untamed. Although this distinctive mountain range is only about 300 km north of Cape Town, it’s a world apart, hardly the place or region in which one would expect to find a 4-star lodge offering luxury guest accommodation. Nevertheless, it does. This is where you’ll find Kagga Kamma, our exclusive lodge, surrounded by the Cederberg Wilderness Area, proclaimed as such in 1973 and granted World Heritage status in 2004.

Cederberg Self-Catering

Cater for Yourself or Dine Out in Cederberg Style

The baby boomer generation will recall that there were very limited numbers of self-catering establishments on offer to holidaymakers when they were young. At that time and in the minds many a person, the Cederberg region was just a vague swathe of countryside as it appeared on maps of South Africa’s Western Cape. They knew little else about this rugged wilderness area. Boomers’ parents either booked the family holiday by the sea, in a hotel that provided full board accommodation, rented a free standing holiday home for the duration of their stay, or they signed a short-term rental agreement on a flat.

4-Star Accommodation

Stellar 4-Star Accommodation

Everyone is fascinated by the moon and the starts in the night sky, but stars are not confined to the sky. When a person is being encouraged to deliver their very best efforts, they are encouraged to “reach for the stars”, so it’s no wonder that the practice of awarding stars has been associated with achievements on an ascending scale of merit.

Some time ago, in South African kindergartens and primary schools, children eagerly competed to see who could earn the most stars for some aspect of excellence in the standards of their schoolwork. Those who really excelled were awarded a gold star and runners-up received silver, rather reminiscent of medals awarded in competitive sports, including the Olympic Games.

Luxury Cederberg Accommodation

Life’s Luxuries in the Cederberg

All people are different from one another. Each person has fingerprints which are completely unique. Similarly, appearances vary greatly. Backgrounds and lifestyles are equally diverse. One person’s understanding of luxury may be the next one’s idea of something relatively ordinary, nothing to write home about.

In general, customers and paying guests are particularly selective and exacting when the hospitality industry is involved, especially with regards to their accommodation and meals. Cleanliness, superior standards of hygiene and housekeeping, luxurious comfort, good-quality appointments and excellent service probably top most lists, and everyone likes life’s luxuries.

Self-Catering Accommodation Cederberg

Self-Catering Accommodation Options in theCederberg Wilderness

In South Africa, self-catering holiday accommodation options were not plentiful a generation or two ago. However, nowadays, most resorts feature self-catering options, since amongst some, this type of accommodation is more popular than that offered by hotels, especially for family groups with children.

Almost all of this country’s leisure travellers regard a braai as catering for oneself, so it’s important to distinguish between the provision of braai facilities and fully equipped kitchens for cooking and dining purposes.

4-Star Cederberg Private Resort

At our 4-star resort in the heart of the Cederberg wilderness, we’d be seriously amiss in our guest facilities if we did not offer braai facilities, amenities which are included in virtually all our accommodation options – the inimitable, unforgettable Star Suite, the Outcrop Open Air Room, Hut and Cave Suites, camping sites and Rest Camp timeshare chalets.

Self-Catering Chalet Accommodation

In addition to each chalet’s braai facilities, plus a daily bundle of braai wood, each unit also offers a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering – from light snacks to full meals. The kitchen equipment includes cutlery, crockery and appliances, such as an oven, stove top, fridge, freezer, kettle, microwave and toaster.

At each Rest Camp chalet, the braai self-catering facilities consist of an indoor fireplace/braai, braai tongs and grid, and use of a private outdoor boma and braai area – the ideal spot from which to watch the sun set with a relaxing drink in hand.

If you’re planning a longer stay with us and especially if you’re accompanied by your family, the chalet self-catering option is the best accommodation type to choose.

The chalets accommodate six or eight persons in luxurious comfort. Accommodation in these three-bedroomed units is available to timeshare owners, DAE and RCI exchange members, and as rentals, via TradeUnipoint.com – all being subject to availability.

Cederberg’s Kagga Kamma Activities

All our guests at Kagga Kamma are most welcome to participate in all the activities which are on offer in our sector of the Cederberg. Timeshare guests receive a 30% discount on all activities, with the exception of the Stargazing Tour, for which the full fee is charged. Other activities include:

  • Morning and/or late night nature drives – see our fauna and flora.
  • Sundowner trip – enjoy a drink while viewing our extraordinary landscape from one of our best viewing points.
  • Rock art tour – ancient rock paintings date back some 6 000 years; Kagga Kamma’s rock formations feature numerous fine examples of this ancient art and historical culture.
  • Quad bike safaris.
  • Swimming – the resort’s main swimming pool is enfolded by magnificent sandstone rock formations. It’s a popular shady retreat during hot summer days and the perfect place in which to curl up on a sun lounger during winter with good book in hand.
  • Stargazing tour – view the celestial galaxies through the state-of-the-art 8-inch Celestron Nexstar 8SE telescope at our mini observatory.
  • Hiking – immerse yourself in our Cederberg wilderness on foot. Self-guided hiking trails of 4km, 7km and 9km offer unique, up-close and personal experiences of the Cederberg’s unique terrain and vegetation.
  • Boulder and rock climbing.
  • Mountain biking.
  • 4×4 trails.
  • Reptile educational sessions.

Your Pleasure

Whether you cater for yourself, enjoy a braai on your private terrace, or decide not to cook at all and instead dine on great South African fare at our à la carte restaurant, the wonderful Cederberg and Kagga Kamma accommodation awaits you.
