The Cederberg region of South Africa’s Western Cape province is vast, but its towns are not very large; some of them are only country villages with small “urban” populations. 4-star luxury has never really been a feature of SA’s small towns and country villages.
For many years, the secluded Cederberg remained largely undiscovered by leisure travellers; most flocked to Cape beach resorts and other busy destinations which were traditional tourist drawcards.
Kagga Kamma’s Modest Beginnings
Only a select few were privy to the rugged, unique charm of the Cederberg, among them the founders of Kagga Kamma, our exclusive, very unusual 4-star resort, right in the heart of this remarkable south-western region – seemingly a world away from civilisation.
These fellows bought land in the area and built a modest cottage as weekend accommodation for their visiting friends, who enjoyed themselves so much so that they could barely wait to be invited again and again.
Non-Intrusive and Eco-Friendly Objectives
Our founders were quick to recognise the potential of this untamed region, acquired more land and built Kagga Kamma, taking care to ensure that all buildings were non-intrusive in the Karoo-like natural landscape, and blending in with the pristine surroundings and distinctive, craggy sandstone rock formations.
Moreover, our resort, its operation and its guests should never have a negative impact on fauna, flora and the environment, which was to be preserved at all costs, without compromising guests’ comfort and convenience.
Today, in keeping with our 4-star status and luxurious standards of accommodation, our resort has a reliable electricity supply, via its own state-of-the-art solar-based power system, leaving the environment as unpolluted and unspoiled as nature intended it to be.
Kagga Kamma succeeds in its objectives of providing guests with exclusively unique accommodation, which remains intimately close to nature, whilst ensuring that service, mod cons, facilities and amenities meet modern standards of luxury.
Guest numbers are controlled, so that maximum numbers are not exceeded, preserving exclusivity and discreet privacy for all visitors. This policy also enables our management to ensure that the environment and its heritage remain unspoiled.
Accommodation, Cuisine and Spa
Sleep under the stars (availability, weather and season permitting) in a comfy bed, made up for you with top-quality, cosy bedding in our new Star suite or Outcrop room – something of which you’ve probably only dreamed, but never thought possible.
Perhaps mankind’s earliest types of shelters hold more appeal. In this case, book your accommodation in either our “cave” rooms or spacious thatched hut suites, reminiscent of the ancient San dwellers of the Cederberg region (remember to include our San rock art tour in your list of pursuits while at Kagga Kamma).
Breakfasts, lunches and dinners at our à la carte restaurant represent the art of freshly prepared, fine South African cuisine. Dinners may be served under the magical African stars, if weather permits.
No visit to our resort is complete without at least one indulgent spa treatment. Special facials, deluxe manicures and pedicures, and a host of therapeutic, rejuvenating massage treatments await you – far away from the normal trappings of a hectic city-based salon.
Lots More Too
There’s so much more on offer at Kagga Kamma in the Cederberg, and lots, lots more to say about our leisure activities, attractions, history, heritage, facilities and accommodation – you simply must experience these delights for yourself.
