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.
To this end, Kagga Kamma in the Cederberg offers really rugged camping opportunities to outdoor and camping enthusiasts who choose to cater for themselves and forego modern comforts completely or almost entirely.
Although Kagga Kamma’s two rough and rugged, self-catering camp sites are right in the heart of our Cederberg resort, removed from the creature comforts of the main resort facilities, advance booking and confirmation for both camps is nonetheless essential.
Our most rugged camp is known as Bobbejaanskraans (Baboons Cliff). Baboons are exceptionally nimble climbers, and these apes must once have been plentiful on and near this camp’s rocky elevations. If camping and self-catering in the most rugged way is your thing, Bobbejaanskraans is the camp for you – no designated stands, no water, no ablution facilities, and no electricity – just you, your tent, camping gear, self-catering abilities, and untamed nature. It is only accessible by a 4 x 4 vehicle.
Swartrug Camp offers a few convenient facilities and comforts to self-catering campers – a communal ablution facility with warm water and a large swimming pool, much appreciated by summertime Swartrug campers.
Five stands are on offer. Three are suitable for a maximum of two adults, and two accommodate a maximum of four adult persons. There is no electricity at Swartrug, which is located about 1,5 km from Kagga Kamma’s restaurant, bar, curio shop, and reception, where ice and firewood may be purchased.
Self-catering campers should arrive with the necessary supplies with which to cater and care for their camping needs. Basic, emergency supplies are only on sale at reception, but self-caterers should not rely on obtaining goods there. However, if campers at either campsite need a break from self-catered meals, they are welcome to dine at the Kagga Kamma restaurant, providing that restaurant reservations are made at least one day in advance.
More Sophisticated Self-Catering Accommodation in The Cederberg
Camping is definitely not every nature lover or self-caterer’s cup of tea. Most folks, especially family groups who wish to have longer self-catering holidays, would find our self-catering Rest Camp chalet accommodation most suitable. Kagga Kamma chalets are only on offer to timeshare owners, as well as RCI and DAE exchanges, subject to availability, and for rent via TradeUnipoint.com, in all cases, subject to availability.
- Six sleeper chalet – three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with shower, the other with bathtub), kitchen, indoor fireplace/braai, and a private outdoor boma with a braai.
- Eight sleeper chalet – three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and other amenities, (all as above). The chalet sleeps six adults and two children.
Both chalets are serviced daily, except on Sundays, which takes the sting out of self-catering. Self-catering kitchens are fully equipped for your convenience:
- Stove top and oven
- Immaculate, modern kitchen units with stylish counter tops/ample preparation space
- Fridge and freezer
- Cutlery, crockery, and utensils
Almost all South African self-caterers will braai or light a cosy fire. A complimentary basket of firewood awaits your arrival in your Cederberg self-catering chalet, and you are welcome to book a table at our restaurant when you wish to dine out. It is all possible, for your pleasure, at Kagga Kamma.
