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.

Cater for Yourself or Dine Out Under Cederberg Stars

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.

So-called Disadvantages

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.

3 Options

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 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.
