Kagga Kamma in the magical Cederberg


Kagga Kamma - accommodation


After the last 18 months, I’m more than ready for a sojourn of tranquillity and peace. Utter bliss awaits in a Cave or Hut Suite, complete with homely comforts, bathroom amenities and a coffee or tea station, so you can rise early to enjoy a warm beverage with a breath-taking view.   And if that’s not enough, enjoy a range of excursions where you can experience the very best of what this region has to offer.  And come home to a refreshing swimming pool, world-class spa and an outdoor Boma dining experience set the scene for a relaxing break.

If camping is more your style, then you’ll love the rugged and undiscovered wilderness which makes Kagga Kamma a bucket-list destination of note for camping enthusiasts. Secluded and set against the backdrop of fascinating rock formations, the camping grounds provide for an environment conducive to digital detoxing.

You don’t get much better than this when it comes to pensioner discounts!
