Self-Catering Accommodation Solutions in the Stunning Cederberg
Self-catering accommodation is an ideal option for holiday makers, leisure travellers, and tourists who do not wish to feel bound to or restricted by keeping to set mealtimes when away from home and their usual daily routine.
Adventurous Camping for Adventurous Campers in the Awesome Cederberg
Not all campers want, prefer, or really like the same type of campsites, locations, seasons, or facilities.
Cederberg’s Self-Catering Options
Without a doubt, the ultimate, most independent and self-reliant type of self-catering holiday accommodation simply has to be camping – without the benefits or comforts of an equipped, modern caravan, towed to the camp site by an equally modern motorised vehicle.
Self-Catering Accommodation in the Cederberg
When on holiday or away from home for an extended period of time, some people like to divorce themselves of all tasks that are reminiscent of daily chores and responsibilities, while others prefer to self-cater at the establishment where their accommodation is.
Unique 4-Star Holiday Accommodation for a Complete Getaway
Once you’ve decided that it’s time for a complete break from work, daily routine and responsibilities, a holiday away from home is on the cards. If you really wish to “get away from it all”, consider a new, unique destination, ideally a place unlike any other which you’ve visited before – Kagga Kamma in the heart of the gloriously rugged Cederberg.
Self-Catering Cederberg Accommodation with Luxury Options
A few generations ago, there were very few self-catering establishments in South Africa at which holidaymakers and tourists could arrange accommodation.
Kagga Kamma’s Cave Rooms
If, like many 21st century people, you are fascinated by mankind’s origins, roots and intriguing and diverse cultures and history, you’d no doubt jump at the chance to spend a few nights in a private cave room, since caves were probably the very first types of shelters which prehistoric human beings used, a very long time ago.
Have you ever wondered why some people prefer self-catering accommodation when they are travelling or on holiday in the Cederberg and elsewhere in South Africa, particularly if full board options, with all meals catered for, are on offer?
Wouldn’t it just be so much easier not to have to prepare your own meals, just sit down and be served, instead of catering for yourself at a Cederberg resort? There are numerous reasons why certain of our visitors prefer to go for this DIY option.
The Advantages of Self-catering
- Not everyone eats three meals per day.
- Many prefer to eat when they are hungry, not when the clock tells them that it is time to have a meal, so they prefer to see to their own food.
- Dietary requirements differ, especially nowadays, when so many persons have food allergies and intolerances. Certain health conditions require special diets. All these folks feel more secure if they shop and cook for themselves.
- Different cultures have varying preferences where meals, preparation methods and their foodstuffs and ingredients are concerned, some of which may be completely foreign to the average South African palate. They would rather see to their own meals.
- Children can be very fussy eaters. Many parents cook accordingly.
- Self-catering accommodation is more affordable than a full board option, particularly for larger groups. Bed and breakfast rates typically fall in between the aforementioned room/accommodation rates and may present a good compromise.
There really are very few disadvantages to selecting a self-catering option. The few that do exist are considered part of the pleasure and fun of the holiday break by many guests, certainly not as disadvantages.
Firstly, you need to bring your foodstuffs and supplies with you to a relatively remote wilderness area like the Cederberg wilderness area, where the next shop is not just around the corner, so you will probably need to draw up a shopping list, so as not to forget anything you are likely to need.
However, food and grocery shopping for your self-catering holiday builds that eager anticipation and sense of adventure. (We can assist with emergency grocery supplies for guests at our exclusive resort in the heart of the Cederberg, but this is not the norm.) Secondly, you prepare your own meals, but only very few will view this as a disadvantage, because here, there is no rush; you cook and eat at your leisure.
Even though our guest numbers are limited in order to provide our visitors with a true Cederberg wilderness experience and perfect privacy in the midst of unspoiled natural surroundings, we offer 3 meal options – full board, bed and breakfast and self-catering, ensuring that all preferences are met.
Our self-catering chalets are only made available to timeshare owners, DAE and RCI exchanges and TradeUnipoint.com members, subject to availability. These luxurious units have fully equipped kitchens, indoor fireplaces/braais and private outdoor boma braai facilities. Also outdoors, campers are situated near the swimming pool and they normally prefer to see to their own meals too.
If You Don’t Want to Cook
When/if you do not feel like cooking, you will be delighted with the freshly prepared a la carte meals provided, and lovingly prepared by our in-house gourmet chef, Willem Kruger. Breakfasts and lunches are served at the restaurant and dinners, accompanied by a selection of fine wines, are enjoyed under the night time Cederberg canopy of stars – an idyllic break from self-catering.
As a premier resort and holiday destination, our establishment prides itself on offering our guests a truly unique experience – a select number of cave suites and rondavels and one spacious, well-appointed self-catering chalet, right in the heartland of the beautiful, unspoiled Cederberg.
