Weekend Breakaway Accommodation Western Cape

Ideal Weekend Western Cape Breakaway Accommodation to Rejuvenate You

“Breaking away” for a weekend means one is wrenching oneself away from something, a place, or responsibilities. Busy people sometimes become so set in their ways and routines that they do have to wrench themselves away to book a breakaway weekend or even a mid-week break, if at all possible.

It has been said that taking regular, more frequent breaks away from daily routine is more beneficial to one’s health, well-being, mind, body, and soul than having only one or two longer holidays per year, as most average South Africans tend to do. This especially applies to those who live in the lovely Western Cape, a region that offers so many diverse destinations that offer accommodation and are not too far from Cape Town, lending themselves to a relatively brief getaway. It is worth remembering a few benefits of “getting away from it all”.

Benefits of Frequent Brief Breakaways: 

  • Just as taking frequent short breaks away from your desk, the telephone, and the computer is good for you, increasing your productivity and renewing your powers of concentration and focus, so too is a regular short or weekend breakaway. The benefits of regular breaks apply to all aspects of your life and leisure about which you are serious.
  • Brief breaks usually cost less than longer ones and can therefore be taken more often.
  • They are easier to take if you happen to be a workaholic, who feels guilty about taking time off. Do not feel guilty, because you are allowing yourself time to think and plan, in the course of enjoying yourself, relaxing, unwinding, and recharging your batteries.
  • Brief breaks, taken more often, allow you to explore and experience new places and destinations, ensuring that your mind, imagination and intellect do not stagnate.

Wonderful Weekend Western Cape Accommodation

Kagga Kamma, our resort, is nestled between the enchanting Cederberg Mountains of the Western Cape. We are only about 250 km from Cape Town, so Kagga Kamma is an ideal weekend breakaway destination for Capetonians. However, guests from upcountry areas are equally welcome weekend visitors, since a 2-hour flight from O.R. Tambo International Airport provides you with the same point of departure to Kagga Kamma as that which Capetonians enjoy.

At the private nature reserve in which Kagga Kamma is situated, you have an opportunity to switch off, relax, and immerse yourself in the tranquil natural solitude that surrounds us. Participate in any of an assortment of resort activities, visit our on-site spa for exquisitely rejuvenating treatments, or socialise in our cosy bar and restaurant that serves freshly prepared, delicious, South African cuisine. Guest accommodation suites are as unique as the Western Cape Cederberg that surrounds us. Accommodation options include air-conditioned “cave” or hut suites with en-suite bathroom facilities, plus the additional option of spending a night in the open air (weather permitting) in our Star Suite or Outcrop Outdoor room, directly under the canopy of stars that appear close enough to pluck from the black African night sky.

Book now. Prepare to unwind and rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit during a wonderful weekend or midweek breakaway at Kagga Kamma in the Western Cape Cederberg.

A Special Cederberg Resort Offering Special Accommodation

The Cederberg is a truly special place, an area in the Western Cape province that is known for its rugged water-, wind-, and weather-sculpted sandstone rock formations, and may seem strange and otherworldly to visitors who’ve never been to the Cederberg before.

Once upon a time, very, very long ago, these unusual shapes would probably have been contained in a large rock mass. Over a period of millennia, the bulk of the rock masses were worn away by the elements, only leaving behind the forms and shapes that were more resistant and harder, and are now those iconic craggy Cederberg features that fascinate us today.

“Must Do” Cederberg Nature Reserve Accommodation

It’s really heartening to note that the number of nature reserves in South Africa is increasing, because the natural habitat and terrain in which the country’s wildlife and indigenous flora flourish is always under threat from human development.

As the human population increases, humans encroach ever more on domains that were previously wilderness areas, a trend that can eventually wipe out natural fauna and flora to the point of extinction – something which must be avoided at all costs. Continue reading

Comfy Cave Accommodation in the Western Cape Cederberg

If we tell you that we offer cave accommodation amongst our resort’s guest accommodation options, you might think that we have lost the plot. As everyone knowns, some, but not all, of our distant ancestors lived in caves, during and subsequent to the prehistoric period, but cave dwelling is hardly the preserve of modern mankind – Homo sapiens, our genus, which only came into being through evolution some 200 000 years ago.

Cederberg Camping Accommodation

Camping: The Call of the Wild in the Cederberg

The 19th century reminds one of the grace and style of a bygone era, when people dressed for dinner and observed a strict code of etiquette. Mother Nature presented her own challenges, so despite the sophisticated niceties of the era, people lived much closer to the vagaries of their natural environment throughout Africa. Many of these folks would have been the equivalent of today’s dyed-in-the-wool campers, who yearn for camping opportunities and accommodation isolated and removed from most of the trappings of latter-day civilisation. Continue reading

Unique Western Cape Nature Reserve Accommodation

What comes to mind, first and foremost, when you think of the wonderful Western Cape and its attractions? Is it Table Mountain or the white, sandy beaches and enfolding coastline that separates the land from the sea? Perhaps your focus is on Cape Town itself, the modern, busy metropolis that is also the considerably older historical home of European ancestry on the southern tip of Africa. Continue reading
