Pieter, the lodge manager, worked non-stop to ensure all the guests enjoyed their stay. (The owners were away.) Kiewiet, the lodge guide, led us on an informative, fun hike into one of... More

The Sederkloof Lodge was the most spectacular Hotel on our three week's trip trough South Africa. The host couple Thys and Alice Cilliers offers you a familiar, stylish and authentic stay surrounded by complete mountain wilderness. We literally saw the baboons and antelopes walking trough the fynbos in front of our windows. The lodges are furnished with an exquisite taste... More

A very special lodge bringing one back to the heart of nature.... Stillness and silence is the key word here. The chalets are exclusive and private. Tranquility is the key word here with rest and relaxation. The outside shower has a beautiful view. The bed was very comfortable. The chalets all have a beautiful view. It would have been nice...

We arrived at 2 pm and Alice and Thys welcomed us with a delicious light lunch up at the lodge. Thys then took us (4 over 60s) in his bakkie on a scenic tour of Sewenfontein; his knowledge of the flora and fauna and way... More
