Voted amongst the top tourist destinations in the world, the Western Cape offers so much more than holiday resorts built alongside clean white beaches and azure water, the unique character and delights of the city of Cape Town, Cape Agulhas – the southernmost tip of the African continent – Table Mountain with/without its fluffy white tablecloth, and world class vineyards and wineries. As any local will tell you, the Western Cape Province offers much, much more than this.
Something for Everyone
One of the Western Cape’s most fascinating, charming assets is the fact that there is such a diversity of activities, landscapes, fauna and flora, things to see and do, and holiday resorts offering excellent accommodation and facilities near or in the midst of each area, catering for a diversity of preferences.
It’s All There
If you want entertainment and urban activity, it is there. If lounging on the beach is your thing, you’re in luck. The mountains are here, whilst people who want to escape crowds and city life have umpteen options to get away from it all, back into pristine, unspoiled nature, peace and tranquillity – without having to undertake a long, exhausting journey inland.
Another Western Cape Jewel
Only relatively recently discovered by lucky holiday makers, the Cederberg wilderness area, and our resort in particular, is another fine jewel in the crown of the Western Cape’s glorious offerings.
In the mid-1980s, three visionary men, founders of our resort, saw the potential and recognised the unique scenic beauty and appeal of a particular part of this region. Collectively, they bought up three adjoining farms and a secluded section known as Kagga Kamma in 1986.
A year later, a small stone cottage was erected, where they visited and entertained their friends. This proved to be so popular with their guests that they decided to develop the property further, within very strict parameters.
In order to preserve the wild, pristine landscape, its unique fauna and flora, outstanding examples of ancient Bushman rock art and the prevailing ambience, they converted their land acquisition into a nature reserve in 1988.
Another adjacent farm, named Grootvlei, was also acquired in 1989, enabling them to provide additional potable water of fine quality to their nature reserve. Soon, the first chalets were constructed, carefully adhering to the landscape’s features so as to blend in, rather than stand out. Several antelope species, which thrive in such an area, were also introduced.
Today, the accommodation on offer here in the Cederberg is completely unique, as is the inimitable experience of visitors to our luxurious holiday resort, where we, our guests and the wider community strive to protect and maintain this magnificent environment and ecosystem.
Five roomy, en suite chalets have been constructed to appear as though they grow out of the surrounding rock formations, while our ten cave suites are built right into sandstone formations. All have private patios with outdoor furniture, the occupant’s love to relax in uninterrupted peace and quiet.
When weather permits, visitors can choose to spend a night in the open, in ultimate luxury, right under the stars, in a double bed alongside a glowing fire – an exclusive, one of a kind opportunity to experience Cederberg at night in an entirely unique way.
Why wait? Book now to experience the holiday of a lifetime at our luxurious resort in the heart of the Western Cape’s Cederberg wilderness – we know you will want to return, over and over again.
