Escape from the pressures of modern life and retreat to Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, located in the peaceful southern Cederberg Mountains. Away from mobile phones, traffic pollution, highways and city lights you will breathe a sigh and enjoy the silence and starlit skies.
The stunning location of the lodge was once home to the Bushmen, today many of their ancient cave paintings are still clearly visible on the rocks, (some dating back 6,000 years).
This spiritual land offers spectacular scenery, majestic mountains, strange rock formations and phenomenal night skies, where the Milky Way, billions of stars, planets, satellites and shooting stars may be seen by the naked eye.

There are also ten unique cave suites; these have a private terrace, en suite bathrooms and twin beds. Built against the mountain, the buildings blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape, to the point of almost being invisible.
