“What a place. Loveliest friendliest staff. Our cave was amazing so comfortable and beautifully decorated, brilliant shower. The food was really good and a great choice of wines and bees. We did the Rock Art and Sundowner trips and highly recommend them. All in all one of the best places and experiences we’ve ever had. Thank you" ”

“A great place to be if you are looking for an isolated location to chill and forget about the city life for a while. Cosy yet spacious rooms, nice hiking, cycling, and quad biking trails. Loads of animals around.”

“We recently had our elopement ceremony at Kagga Kamma. I cannot speak highly enough of all the help we received in making this the perfect day it was. I would recommend it to absolutely anyone! Jennie was so kind and patient with me, she answered every question I had. All the staff went above and beyond in every sense. Jaco was really the best tour guide ever, we were lucky enough to have him teach us all sorts of interesting things on the sunset drive, the rock art tour and the star gazing. He had such enthusiasm about everything he said, it was just captivating. We definitely left wiser! As for the food... WOW! Every meal we had was just incredible! We also had the pleasure of the most fantastic bartender and waiter named Nathan, he paid attention to every detail and was just a treat to talk to. The views are unreal and nature is all around you. I can only think of one word to describe Kagga Kamma and that is MAGICAL! We honestly cannot wait to return.”

“I chose Kagga Kamma to propose to my girlfriend (she said yes) and the team at Kagga Kamma did an amazing job! The service was excellent, they were all in on the proposal and kept it a surprise. They set everything up for the special day and truly made it an unforgettable moment for us. My fiancé and I will definitely be back as it is a special place to visit.”

“A place suspended between the silence of the land and the changing of the skies. A place to listen to the rocks, and tell their stories. A place to walk in the footsteps of the ancestors. A place to be in love with each other. A place where the people who look after you, reflect the magic and serenity of this place called Kagga Kamma. What an incredible experience we had at this magnificent place.”

Jesseemlynstevenson – October 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“Thanks to everyone for making us feel special and welcome. The staff were accommodating in every aspect. Lorenza and her team’s food is out of this world! Thanks to Tania and her team for moving our venue inside at the last minute, we know it was hard work, but we appreciate your help to keep the weather from ruining our wedding. We had a wonderful time!”

“A glimpse of heaven! My husband and I had our elopement ceremony at Kagga Kamma and it was pure bliss from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed and received a brief information session and were then escorted to our cave unit. The owner met with us to discuss details for the event, and we were very impressed by how accommodating they were. The food is simply delicious and presented beautifully. Every staff member went above and beyond to make us feel important and like family. Special thanks to Ryno and Nathan for their excellent service as well as Leandra for escorting us to the unit and ceremony location, the head chef for her professional and beautiful service, and Tania for taking the time to meet with us. Kagga Kamma offers many activities which we hope to participate in on our next visit. You truly need to see it to believe such a place exists! Well done, Kagga Kamma!”

“A true gem in the middle of nowhere. For the first time in a long time, you can actually believe the pictures on the internet, but actually not completely, as what you find cannot be captured on camera. We arrived at night in the rain and were received heartedly, with our table for dinner ready. The caves that we stayed in were a breath of fresh air after a long journey, with a decanter of sherry awaiting our arrival. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and really makes you feel at home. It's definitely a place that will see us again, and that all South Africans should visit.”

Cois Visagie – July 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“Another amazing lodge, we enjoyed this place so much. The staff and management are very friendly and welcoming. This was a stay on our motorcycle trip around Southern Africa. Love this place!”

Roy Stewart – July 2023 (Google)

“We had a wonderful time at Kagga Kamma. We were in awe of how beautiful the surroundings were. All the staff members were warm and friendly, and they went out of their way to make everything as comfortable as possible. The food was delicious and generous portions.”

lauren27williams – June 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“What a beautiful place to stay and experience. The views were out of this world and definitely one of the best places and unusual places to stay. The service was 5 star. We hope to return and spend more time there.”

Riska Oxley – June 2023 (Google)

“My dear husband took me to Kagga Kamma to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was the most unbelievable experience of my life. All the staff were amazing and they know how to make your time special. During Easter weekend the chef went all out to treat us with self-made Easter eggs and with every seating the food was divine and served beautifully. In the evenings, we were looking forward to enjoying supper in the boma, sitting around a big fire. Everywhere we go we are spreading the word of our enjoyable stay. A must is the 4km Klipspringer trial. We met so many new people along the road and they will be remembered. Many thanks, Kagga Kamma for going the extra mile. You were incredible!”

lqs2023 – April 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“We had the most incredible honeymoon at Kagga Kamma. The clean fresh air, the friendliest staff, and the absolutely delicious food made for a divine stay. Our excursions were fun and informative, Jano and Pieter were both so vibrant and full of life. Management helped me surprise my husband with the Under the Sky experience, going to all lengths to keep it a surprise until we arrived at the open-air room. Susanna is a magician of massages. We even got a breakfast/padkos package packed for us upon request for our 8-hour drive home. We left feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and filled with great memories and experiences. We will be back!”

Caylee Andrade – April 2023 (Google)

“We eloped at Kagga Kamma from 24 March to 26 March. It was a wonderful experience, from the food and stay to our actual Wedding day. Thank you Kagga Kamma and your events team for spoiling us and making it extra special.”

neylene2023 – February 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“We enjoyed our stay in Kagga Kamma tremendously, including the experience of driving the 40km gravel road through stunning surroundings. The Lodge itself is in top condition with super-friendly stuff. Accommodation and food experience exceeded our expectations. Especially considering it is in the middle of nowhere. We spent one night in one of the open-air suites. That is the most beautiful set-up and a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Absolutely recommendable!”

KerstinZA2022 – February 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“Wow! What an experience! It's actually not an experience one can put into words, it's a "you-must-experience-it-yourself experience". Everything was amazing. The road to Kagga Kamma was an absolute feast for your eyes and soul. We went for our 10th Wedding anniversary; Kagga Kamma went the extra mile to make it an even more magical time away! The staff were all amazing; from Jerome who helped us to our cave, the receptionist, Pieter, who took us on a Sundowner tour, and the Chefs. We will definitely be back!”

FarAway43708767541 – January 2023 (TripAdvisor)

“In December my family and I had the privilege of celebrating my brother's 30th birthday with a weekend away at Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, and it was wonderful! The staff were friendly, and helpful, and went above and beyond to ensure we had the most memorable stay and celebration. (Thank you, KK!) The rooms were inspiring with their cave design, and it felt as if we were part of the beautiful landscape outside. The facilities were clean and functional, and we really appreciate the attention to detail of bringing in the Christmas spirit with decorations and Christmas hats! It was a weekend away that we won't forget and we're grateful that we got to celebrate such a special celebration at such a special place! We would highly recommend the unforgettable, and beautiful Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve!”

Gabrielle Raats – January 2023 (Google)

"All I can say is WOW! We had the most amazing long weekend to celebrate Father's Day at Kagga Kamma in one of the three-bedroom Chalets. Service with a smile from Reception at arrival to Restaurant and Bar staff was amazing, super friendly and efficient. Including the cleaning team whom checked on us daily to ensure everything was to satisfaction. Dinner at the Restaurant was prepared and served to perfection: 5-star rating! Beautiful surrounds, encountered so many animals whilst making use of the self-help map of the area. On exploring the easy to follow route, ran into a super helpful and informative Guide who was on a Guided Quad Tour but he still took the time to point out an Aardvark's home next to the road, as well as a red Wildebeest to us and informed us which route to follow to see the most animals at the time Thank you for going above and beyond to make our stay super stunning and the extra effort with the Father's Day gift and entertaining everyone with a Rugby Finals guessing the score at the bar. We'll definitely be back!"

"Never in my wildest dreams had I thought sleeping in a cave would be so magical. The place is spotless, smelt fresh and had warm running water. The welcome note, birthday note and bubbly were such a wonderful surprise. The Restaurant was so warm with very welcoming and friendly, professional staff. The hospitality here was spectacular. Next time we will come back for activities and sleep an extra day, definitely."

Bridgette - July 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"This is a little piece of paradise in the middle of nowhere! Everything was good - the service, the food, the Guides and the Suite. It was lovely. It was an incredible experience and one that we will treasure forever. We wish we had stayed longer."

Christina Christodoulou - June 2022 (Google)

"This is one of the most beautiful places I've been to on earth. First time I flew in a small plane and we were treated like royalty, being picked up from the landing strip and taken on a ride to the Reception and restaurant. (Had an amazing lunch from their delicious menu.) Second visit we drove up for a film shoot by the pool and had lunch again and also got to experience one of their rooms to get dressed in. It is so worth the long drive from Cape Town. Please consider visiting for some unforgettable views!"

Christina Christodoulou - June 2022 (Google)

" I had an amazing stay. The place is stunning and unique. I loved the atmosphere and the friendly and helpful staff. I loved everything about my stay. They made my birthday so special. I will definitely come back during summertime."

Mpho - June 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"Kagga Kamma was a fantastic experience! The trip to get there was exciting and a feast for the eyes. The choice of activities was perfect from a spa to quad biking. If you need restful sleep, this is the place: dead quiet! The starry skies were amazing and the Stargazing Tour was informative. I look at the stars differently now! The accommodation (Chalets) was perfect... excellent linen and well-stocked kitchen. There is only solar for electricity so no load-shedding and they have their own water so all sorted. Definitely recommend Kagga Kamma... I will be back!"

Anon - June 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"I spent two nights at Kagga Kamma on the full board package. I travelled with a friend and we both stayed in the Cave Suites. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our Guide, Zahn, was knowledgeable and entertaining on our drives. The room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The food was absolutely delicious. The Reserve is exquisite with so many magical, fantastic and strange rock formations that demanded a photo a minute. I highly recommend the 4km walk, following the blue markers. I was blown away by the beautiful scenery. The walk is a bit difficult at times but well worth the effort. I highly recommend Kagga Kamma. Our stay was truly special. What a gem of a place!"

Wendy - May 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"What a lovely break away. Just what the doctor ordered. Friendly and helpful staff. Sunset drive was the best experience I had. Cave cleaned and serviced daily. We attended a wedding, and the food was amazing. The bonfire at night with dinner is definitely also a winner."

Anon - May 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"We spent an amazing week at Kagga Kamma. The staff were all very helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. Special mention goes our Guide, Ryno, who took us to see the rock paintings. He was knowledgeable, helpful and curious. The walking trails were all very well marked and maintained. The peace and quiet and unusually rugged terrain makes it a wonderful destination."

Wendy - May 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"Amazing must stay nature reserve and resort; blown away by everyone who made our experience unforgettable. The Restaurant meals were great and sitting by the Boma for sunset was a postcard. The 4km and 7km hikes give you an amazing view of the property. The 4km hike has a lot better cave drawings, however is rocky and has a lot of climbing. The 7km route was a lot flatter but does not have the drawings. Quad biking was great! A must do activity and worth doing the two hour route. The open air massage was incredible! Worth booking to see the views and get to feel this taste of heaven. So relaxing. Our eight-person sleeper chalet was perfect. Loved the private Boma and nightly fires in the indoor fireplace. Would want to stay here again!"

Jasmine S - April 2022 (Google)

"The staff are absolutely awesome. I travel a lot, and so have experienced staff at many different places, and I must say the staff at kagga kamma are amongst the best."

Mbumbijazo - April 2022 (Booking.com)

"My wife and I had a phenomenal weekend! We didn't really know what to expect when we arrived, but the whole weekend exceeded our expectations by far. All of the staff are very friendly, the food was fantastic and the Cave Suites had incredible and breath-taking views. Our Nature Guide, Jacques, was extremely informative. He has extensive knowledge of the wildlife and we enjoyed his stories while on the Nature Drives as well as our conversations after the tours and shows. Zahn, our other Nature Guide was just as informative. We enjoyed the Quad Bike Tour and the Stargazing Tour. We cannot thank Jacques and Zahn enough for making our weekend so much more exciting and special. We also want to thank each and every staff member. A five-star rating is just not enough! You guys will definitely be seeing us again!"

Raymond Dwyer - March 2022 (Facebook)

"We had an incredible weekend camping at Kagga Kamma. The moment we arrived we were greeted by a kind soul at the gate. We were helped at Reception by Abriaan, who was incredibly friendly and helpful the whole weekend. All the staff echoed his character and they were all super friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our campsite (Swartrug) was clean, quiet and stunning. I would absolutely recommend it and cannot wait to visit again!"

Anon - March 2022 (TripAdvisor)

" Thank you to Kagga Kamma and all their incredible staff for the most AMAZING elopement weekend we could ever have imagined. Your service, staff, food, experiences, cleanliness, facilities and location is world class and outstanding. I cannot fault our beautiful weekend in any way and will have very fond memories for quite some time. Special thanks and gratitude to you all for making our milestone event so special."

Odette Butcher - February 2022 (Google)

" Thank you to each and every employee at Kagga Kamma who assisted and contributed to making our special day so memorable. Right from the planning to the execution. We will forever treasure the memories that were made here and we were treated like absolute royalty! Hospitality and peace of mind 10/10, not to mention the lovely food - another 10/10! Highly recommend this venue for a romantic getaway or in our case, a small / intimate wedding. We will be back!"

Mr & Mrs Bouwer - February 2022 (TripAdvisor)

" Kagga Kamma is off the beaten track but what an amazing place. Timeless rock formations, glorious sunsets, beautiful rock art, friendly and professional people - definitely a place to visit."

Peter Havenga - January 2022 (Google)

"We stayed in the Open Air Sky Suite and what can I say? It was the best experience in my life! My husband and I had the most amazing time: stargazing, fire crackling and sitting in the hot tub. Would recommend this to everyone who wants to visit the beautiful Cederberg area!"

Janina Kaestner - January 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"This place is magnificent!! We enjoyed New Year's Eve and New Year's Day here. The food was great, the staff were kind and professional, and the beds the comfiest I have ever felt! We upgraded to the Sky Suite on New Year's Day and enjoyed the most beautiful night's sky that evening. The Rock Art Tour earlier that day was great and we thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Khoi and San lifestyles."

J Colon - January 2022 (TripAdvisor)

"For a romantic anniversary we couldn't have asked for a more personalised event. The Open-Air Suite was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The airfield was in good condition and the collection and re-delivery were both spot on time. A very good fly-in experience."

Bermonty - December 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"A big THANK YOU to all the staff for an amazing experience. We chose Kagga Kamma to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the Cave Suite and spent one night at the Open Air Sky Suite. WOW. No words can describe the experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The peace and quiet is food to the soul. The food was out of this world. Loved, loved our weekend away."

Lynette Smith - December 2021 (Google)

"A friend and I spent 4 nights in a self-catering chalet. We dined in the Boma and took an excursion to see the Rock Art. We also both had a lovely massage. Kagga Kamma is out-of-this-world! The rock formations and stunning hikes were absolutely amazing, as were the San Rock Paintings. The service was fantastic; everyone was super kind and attentive. This is a must-see in South Africa!"

Bea in Africa - December 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"We camped. It is pretty exposed, so not for resort-style camping, but the environment is beautiful and remote. Adequate bathroom facilities and very friendly and helpful staff at Reception. Spectacular swimming pool."

Albertus Van Wyk - November 2021 (Google)

"Absolutely wonderful experience. Remote and secluded; spectacular natural beauty. The Cave Suites are small, but very comfy and serviced daily - 5 star service. Slippers and dressing gowns are provided. We opted for full board. Meals are of the highest quality. Enough vegetarian and vegan options available. Restaurant service was great. The spa treatments were unbelievable - I did not expect that level of excellence in such a remote setting. The Nature Drives with Guides Shawn and Ryno were wonderful and informative. Ryno also offered to accompany me on an early morning hike to explore rock art and fynbos - a memorable outing. Highly recommended"

Ronel Bierman - November 2021 (Google)

"Kagga Kamma is a tranquil refuge away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The blend of natural beauty, culture and modern hospitality is something to be experienced. The staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Activities were fun and I can highly recommend the Stargazing and Rock Art Tours as highlights."

Alan - November 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"On behalf of, and as a guest of the Bezuidenhout family, I would like to say "WOW"...What a fantastic experience at Kagga Kamma...It was a time-share weekend for a few friends and we loved it! The beauty and serenity of the environment was truly something to behold. All the staff were highly professional, friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure dealing with everyone, from the cleaning staff to the guides. The accommodation was great and provided for all our needs - one can see that everything was thought of carefully when equipping the house. Our guide, Gareth, was outgoing and friendly, and made our nature-drive worthwhile and interesting with facts on animals, plants and the rock-art. We thank everyone for making it possible to have such a memorable experience. We definitely recommend Kagga Kamma as a 'Bucket-List' experience!"

Ersilia Fialdini - October 2021 (Google)

"Our stay at Kagga Kamma was amazing. Absolutely everything was perfect, from the service to the food to the rooms and the activities. The Star Suite was such an adventure. I couldn't sleep because I just wanted to look at the stars the whole night. The hike was a lot of fun. Friendly, accommodating and helpful staff. I would go back today if I could."

Ilana Gebhardt - October 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"Kagga Kamma is by far the best place in South Africa and can easily compare to international places and still top. For my anniversary I paid reasonably and got the Queen's treatment with my husband. The waiters, management, cleanliness, activities. All on point. The place is not for crowds, it's for peace, love and tranquillity, unless if you book Chalets for groups which are equally beautiful. I was bowled over by how reasonable everything there is. From food, shampoo to massages. It is clear the idea is for clients to have the time of their lives without financially bankrupting them."

Anon - October 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"We flew there from Morningstar Airfield and it was an amazing time! Beautiful place to land and have a fun time at!"

William Frost - September 2021 (Google)

"Kagga Kamma is a magical place where one can reconnect with nature and truly rest. There are majestic views to enjoy on the hiking/mountain-biking trails and an endless array of stars at night. The staff were wonderful - extremely helpful and very friendly. The Nature Guides were knowledgeable and we learnt a lot from the Stargazing Tour. Thank you for a memorable stay."

Elze Mariross - August 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"What a surprise; it might have been cold and remote, but the chalets were comfortable and the fireplace in the lounge ensured warm nights. The scenery is quite unique, with fascinating rock formations. The hikes are a must; they are spectacular! But what made it really special was the staff! Nothing was a problem. They were amazing!! From Kevin in the Pub, Abrian at Reception, to the ladies in the restaurant. Tasty food and extraordinary service indeed. Not forgetting Stephan, the Assistant Manager. Thanks all for a great time!"

Pierre Marais - August 2021 (Google)

"Oh my gosh! Breath-taking. An absolute bucket-list MUST for anyone. Will definitely go back. From the stunning Cave Suite, to the amazing couple's hot stone massage and the delicious food. Oh, what a magnificent place. Absolute BLISS. You cannot help but feel super relaxed and completely disconnected from everything else that doesn't really matter. Definitely stay more than a day. Make a weekend or a couple days out of it. The drive there was amazing, but once we reached Kagga Kamma, what an absolutely extraordinary experience. Wow. Wish I could give 10 stars. We went there for our honeymoon and it was romance heaven!"

Jessica Bosch - August 2021 (Google)

"An amazing experience. Our 21st Wedding anniversary was made extra special by the amazing staff. Super friendly and professional. Constantly went the extra mile. Breath-taking hikes. Phenomenal views!!"

“Kagga Kamma was a vision of beauty {for our wedding}, inside and out! Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting, delicious food and the great service that the Team provided. We received glowing feedback from our guests and we couldn't be happier. We felt like we just showed up and Kagga Kamma just took care of each detail. It was all just so perfect. They are without a doubt THE BEST WEDDING VENUE I have ever seen! Picture-perfect. A photographer’s dream shoot. The Kagga Kamma Team was professional and met every one of our requests with the most pleasant, charming, helpful, and hospitable attitudes. Compliments to the chef; the food was amazing! Our guests were very impressed. Kagga Kamma literally did not leave a rock unturned. Everything was perfect and we could not have chosen a better place nor more wonderful people!”

The food was amazingly delicious. The people were so friendly, kind and extremely helpful. Every single person in the Kagga Kamma family truly went above and beyond. Our weekend was absolutely exquisite. The food and the overall experience were simply world-class. Thank you for everything you have done for us... Even thought it was so cold, the service and friendliness of all staff was so warning and welcoming. You made our wedding day very special.”

“If you ever want a once-in-a-lifetime WOW experience, take a trip to this absolutely amazing destination. You will be swept away by the beauty of this natural geological wonderland. We opted for the Cave Suite, which was compact yet cosy, with stunning views of the unique rock formations. Great excursions i.e. 4x4, bicycle and quad bike trails. There are also numerous hiking opportunities and a chance to view authentic San and Khoi paintings. Night skies are breath-taking... Do suggest you take a vehicle with adequate ground clearance. Well worth the trip; will visit again.”

Geoff ten Oever - June 2021 (Google)

“What an unbelievable break-away at Kagga Kamma. The staff were amazing; so helpful and friendly. The accommodation in the Caves was wonderful and clean. The Spa staff were the best that I have had. Then the biggest thank you goes to the Chef - thank you for catering for us with allergens. It was wonderful to have a wide choice. We cannot wait to go back.”

melanielI8850MW - May 2021 (TripAdvisor)

“We stayed at Kagga Kamma for 2 nights in the cave suite. The landscape was breath-taking and the unit was very cosy and well-equipped. The food was amazing, better than what we had at top-rated restaurants, so I’d highly recommend coming with at least a half-board! We also went on two excursions: the Rock Art Tour and Quad Bike Adventure, and they are both informative and entertaining.”

Merelda W - May 2021 (TripAdvisor)

“Absolutely stunning. Great staff and dining experience. And the nature drive and 4x4 trails are great fun. We'll be back.”

Fred Van Lith - May 2021 (Google)

“My highest hopes were exceeded by all that Kagga Kamma has to offer. The beautifully laid out and comfortable rooms are perfectly nestled in the natural beauty that surrounds you. All the staff treat you like royalty and the food is exceptional. My elopement could not have been more perfect. I truly recommend that you make the trip; it was a once- in-a-lifetime experience that I cannot wait to relive one day. A weekend is way too short to truly enjoy all that they have to offer.”

Arlene Davis - May 2021 (TripAdvisor)

“Kagga Kamma was the ultimate location to have our Elopement on 19 May 2021. From the time of booking the Elopement Package till the day that we departed Kagga Kamma, we felt very welcome and special.The staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and competent, and catered for our every need and special request. We received so much more than what we expected, and all the arrangements were handled effortlessly by the Kagga Kamma Team. We walked away with a set of breath-taking photos from their very own Paparazzi. A great thank you Kagga Kamma for making our day special. We will forever have this special memory and thank you for being part of it!”

Wikus and Lucy Rupping - May 2021

They did everything to make sure we had a comfortable and pleasant stay. The food was exceptional. Kagga Kamma is definitely a bucket-list destination and we will be retuning for another stay! The Star Suite is also a must for anyone visiting Kagga Kamma. 12 out of 10!”

“Perfectly quiet after dark. The most amazing night skies. Well-prepared food in abundance. An incredible, deep massage. The "Star Suite" with its private rock pool. And an attentive, talented, friendly staff at every turn. A lovely weekend escape from reality.”

Brian G - March 2021 (TripAdvisor)

“What a lovely place - what a lovely space. Fabulous staff. Amazing setting in Neolithic formations. We did the 'cave' thing and are so glad we did. Lots of little touches and they really pulled out the stops for my daughter's 21st - champagne, cake with sparklers, armful of beautiful protea’s and birthday song. Thank you guys!”

Alison Wilson - March 2021 (Google)

"We stayed in the self-catering cottage which had everything that we needed - from an outdoor braai, fireplace (we didn't use since it was summer), well-equipped kitchen and surprise Christmas jar of cookies which the kids loved. Service at the restaurant was amazing at the outdoor boma and our stargazing guide was knowledgeable. The view of the rocks was breath-taking and made a good hike for us all. "

Woon Peng Ziady - February 2021 (Google)

"We visited this supreme destination for our 31st wedding anniversary. I cannot praise the whole process enough - from booking to checkout. The Sky Suite is an absolute must do as nothing compares to this experience. The guides are patient and knowledgeable. Food is tasty and very well priced. See you again - hopefully very soon! "

Jpkoei - February 2021 (TripAdvisor)

"Our stay at Kagga Kamma was perfect. The entire team was so kind, helpful and willing to assist me in setting up the perfect proposal. We had the best time, from staying in the Star Suite (HIGHLY recommended) to our Hut. The food was delicious; compliments to the chef again. All-in-all, one of the best places I have stayed in. The views are spectacular and it's a perfect place to be present and in nature, with a sky full of stars. "

"Proposed to my fiancé at the beautiful Sky Suite this week. The experience was nothing under perfect! The management and staff were incredibly supportive through the nerve-wrecking experience and the whole proposal played out perfectly. We felt special and our needs were catered to without question by all staff that did everything they could to make us happy. A shout out to Shaun who led the whole secret proposal and despite my nerves - it was still a surprise to her! Great place, great food, great staff and really a great experience! "

"We had the best time and the service and hospitality was the best that we ever received. Kagga Kamma is the place to be for any special occasion and is worth every cent. The food at Kagga Kamma is out of this world and is freshly prepared with every meal. The Open Air Suite was a life experience and is a must for any couple. "

"We stayed here again now - the first time was last year in winter and now this time it was in spring. Everything about the place is everything you'd need. The space, the stars, the accommodating staff, the well-appointed Hut, the generous meals, the relaxed ambience, the outings. It is all so much more than you expect. I can't give away more - go see for yourself... "

"The images and texts on the website do not do justice to the amazing experience on the ground. I am a frequent traveller within the Western Cape, and this is surely one of my top recommendations. Needless to talk about the landscape and the pristine silence and beauty; the real deal for us was the service. What will take us back to Kagga Kamma is the service. Thank you, Kagga Kamma!"

"Visited in February 2020 and we really enjoyed our stay. The manager and staff made us feel very welcome and were very attentive to our needs. The food was amazing. The decor in the room was beautiful. Will certainly return."

"We stayed in the Self-Catering Chalet and loved every minute. It was the third time that we visited the establishment and it remains one of our favourite places. This time we upgraded one evening's accommodation to the Star Suite to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It was an amazing experience and one of my all-time highlights. The Open Air Suite exceeded all our expectations. We loved the natural rock pool, the fire place, the comfortable bed, the wonderful setting of the outdoor shower and bath, the bath robes, the sunset, the spectacular view and the stars. The stars felt so close and were absolutely breath-taking. This was a bucket list experience."

"My fiancé and I had an amazing engagement at Kagga Kamma. Excellent service, excellent food and excellent value for money. If I had to do it all again, I would stick with them as my venue. Thanks to the entire team for the outstanding effort."

"Truly a unique experience in the Cederberg region of the Western Cape. Beautiful night stargazing, daytime game-viewing, or just lazing next to the pool."

"Spending the night at Kagga Kamma in a ‘Cave Suite’ set amongst the most spectacular rock formations. Accommodation options include "Cave" Suites, the Open Air Star and Sky Suites and very spacious thatched Huts. The Reserve is also home to some great examples of rock art. Quad biking and self-drive 4x4 experiences available if you have your own vehicle. This is escapism at its best!"

Staff, especially the manageress, were extremely friendly and helpful. All the amenities and activities offered, which are numerous, we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely return. Well done guys."

"We loved our stay at Kagga Kamma. Staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. This spot has plenty to offer, especially for nature lovers and kids. What we also appreciated is that they really make you feel safe in regards to COVID -19: hygiene and mask wearing is taken very seriously by the staff. Would definitely recommend!"

Rozanne de Vries - September 2020 (Google)

"A really, really cool place literally in the middle of nowhere. The 35km gravel road leads you through a fantastic pass with great views and past a lot of really interesting rock formations - you won’t get bored along the way. Once there, the extremely friendly staff is happy to assist you in whatever way needed. The views are just breath-taking and I enjoyed the absolute silence here. Please do yourself a favour and book a Guided Stargazing Tour in the evening - the stars are absolutely amazing; if the moon is not there and the skies are clear. Loved it, will definitely be back!"

"Overall, we had a very enjoyable and pleasant stay. Not once did we feel unsafe or insecure because of COVID-19 where the Lodge applied strict control measures without constraining freedom of movement. The staff could not do enough for us; the accommodation was great, as well as the food at the Restaurant."

Patb2105 - August 2020 (TripAdvisor)

"I read the positive reviews about the service from the staff before going and can truly confirm that we received excellent service! Spa treatment was superb! Accommodation was clean & comfortable. Perfect place to cut off from the hustle & bustle & recharge!"

Celeste Jaftha Vermaak - August 2020 (Facebook)

"We went there with friends with one thing in mind: rest. We arrived on Tuesday and went for a drive, saw Eland, Springbok, Zebra, Steen Bokkies and Baboons. Wednesday and Thursday we enjoyed the quiet and peace on the stoep and Thursday in the bar area in front of the fireplace. We felt special and were treated with so much care and love. The food was excellent, and we were extremely satisfied after every meal."

"We have booked our clients with Kagga Kamma for many years. All our clients have raved about their experiences and it is why we continue to secure bookings with this operator. As a booking agent, their client service and quality of experience gives us peace of mind and it's why we love working alongside them so much. Highly recommended and guaranteed special memories to last a lifetime. With so much gratitude for how well you treat our precious clients."

Odette Ste Jeanne Butche - June 2020 (Facebook)

"My husband and I eloped to Kagga Kamma and had the most wonderful experience. The place is rugged, yet so beautiful and peaceful. The staff go out of their way to make you feel so special and to make your trip memorable. The food is delicious, the rooms are perfect, the staff are incredible and the guides are knowledgeable and fun! There are various activities to do while you're there, but you can also relax by the pool quite happily. We went in March and it was pretty hot - 33-36 degrees most days, however the rooms are air-conditioned. Kagga Kamma is a unique place and definitely worth a visit."

"The visit at Kagga Kamma was a birthday present for my husband. He and I enjoyed the stay very much. Accommodation very good, food good, boma with fire good. The drive to the Khoisan paintings was enjoyable and our own 2.5 hour hike early one morning through the fantastic rock formations was great. Last but not least the friendly personnel are much appreciated. Hope many visitors will come and have a wonderful time at your Lodge."

"We spent two nights here in early February and what an unforgettable experience it was! We enjoyed every minute but particularly our night in the Sky Suite. The spectacular sundowners during the storm that passed over on the Saturday evening were an added bonus. A beautiful setting! Probably the most amazing few days ever!"

"Thank you to the staff at Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve. You made our holiday unforgettable. Your fast, friendly and professional service is much appreciated. The Guided Tours were exceptional, interesting and informative. Proudly South African."

Julia - February 2020 (Tripadvisor)

"An opportunity to get in touch with nature with little effort. The fauna, flora, amazing geological surroundings, ancient rock art (2000 odd years old) and stunning setting for stargazing. Takes you back to your basic roots."

Marius Ackermann - February 2020 (Facebook)

"This place feels like it comes out of a fairy-tale, The staff are incredible beyond words. Does not matter if you are camping or lodging, everyone gets treated amazingly. The location is picturesque; the night sky is beyond words."

"In the middle of the desert and a fairly arid (and beautiful) landscape, Kagga Kamma offers a lovely respite. The staff are lovely. They go to a lot of trouble to make you feel comfortable. The veld drives are great. Food is good. Beers are cold. The views are stunning. This is a must."

Leon - January 2020 (Tripadvisor)

"We booked one of the Open Air Suites at Kagga Kamma and it was an unforgettable experience. We spent the most romantic evening under the stars, but surrounded by comfort and natural beauty. A definite bucket-list stay for any adventurous and romantic couple."
