Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve


Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the Lodge. Kagga Kamma not only offers guests spectacular scenery and absolute tranquillity but also stylish accommodation, fine dining and exclusive tours and activities – all included when you book your stay.

The Cederberg area is unique in that it comprises an untouched Karoo-like wilderness where guests will find beautiful wild flowers and small critters that are scarcely seen in other parts of the country. Kagga Kamma is equally unique in that it offers guests experiences and facilities they will not find anywhere else. Choose from a variety of accommodation types which include our Cave Suites, our Outcrop Open Air Room and our luxurious Thatched Rondavels for an experience of the surroundings in the most magical way possible.

Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve offers guided 4×4 and quad bike safaris, hiking trails and star gazing at the mini Observatory. Guests can relax at the resort’s swimming pool while marvelling at the rock formations it’s built around. The Spa offers exclusive wellness treatments to relax and rejuvenate and guests can enjoy a sundowner as the sky changes colour in the late afternoon. Guests can also look forward to picturesque views of the Karoo-like landscape in winter and summer.

Kagga Kamma’s trail offers 4×4 enthusiasts spectacular views over vast stretches of Karoo and the mountains and valleys of the Cederberg. Rare birds and reptiles can be seen along this trail as well as some antelope species and cheeky baboons. The route is more than 100km long in total and it is best to travel with more than one vehicle. The route is quite difficult and has some very steep sections.

From mid-August to mid-November the area turns into a botanist’s paradise with wild flowers blooming in every direction. December to February are the hottest months (temperatures can reach over 40˚C) while winter months vary from mild to very cold with occasional snow in higher areas. Higher areas are generally 8˚C colder than the lower sites.
