Sky Suite Open Air Room
One of the most incredible features that nature has to offer at the Sky Suite is the changing of the sky. From the deep reds, oranges and yellows of the sunset over the Skurweberge, highlighted by swirling clouds, to the tranquil night sky sprinkled with over 200 billion known stars. If you spend enough time looking up at this unique ‘celling’ you are almost guaranteed to get a wish out of it as shooting stars flash across the calm night sky.
Nestled in a rocky outcrop on one of the highest peaks of Kagga Kamma - approximately 950m above sea level - the beautiful Sky Suite offers a truly unique experience.
This amazing vantage point allows for an incredible view of the surrounding mountain ranges and beautiful Fynbos valleys.
The silence of the early afternoon creates an astonishing comparison to the full-of-life soundtrack the evening brings. If you listen closely, you may just hear the hooves of antelope on the ground as they feed in the cooler summer evenings, the black-backed jackals calling for their mates and cubs, and even the faint rustling of feathers and the wonderful hoots of the Barn and Spotted Eagle owls out on the prowl.
As the early morning rolls over the Tankwa Karoo, the sunrise will light up the sky with soft pinks and purples bouncing off the surrounding mountain ranges and bringing with it the happy birds’ chirps and the beautiful fragrances of the Fynbos as the early morning dew brings everything back to life once more.
