Really was a wonderful breakaway. So peaceful and quiet. We stayed in House # 8 and we had a lovely view. It was very hot outside but the air-conditioner was great and worked 100%. We do intend to revisit in April next year. Looking forward...More

Cederkloof is a must see for all couples and even families. Situated in the mountains of Citrisdal. It has the perfect location to feel secluded from life's busy hustle and bustle, yet only two hours away from Cape Town CBD. On arrival, I was thoroughly...More

We spent a single night at Cederkloof, and it was magical! Sitting out in the Jacuzzi under the stars on a cool winters night was a real highlight. We were traveling with our 2 small dogs and were happy that the place is dog friendly...More

We stayed here for one night only, wished we had booked 2 nights. The accommodation was lovely, it was fairly private, although our chalet and jacuzzi faced a little road (we were situated in the centre more or less I can't remember the number though)....More

About
Description
Now under new ownership and management, Elephant Leisure Resort has changed its name to Cederkloof Botanical Retreat. The name change signifies our love of and growing connection to the land and our More reverence for the wonders of nature. Cederkloof reflects many aspects of our relationship to the astounding landscape, while keeping (and improving on) our tradition of dreamy comfort and simple, meaningful style. Cederkloof Retreat is only 8 km away from Citrusdal and with its Unique setting and wonderful views over Cederberg Mountain range and Sneeuberg conservancy which is covered in snow in winter creates a relaxing and calming atmosphere that welcomes the weary traveller. The swimming pool is fed with the spring water borehole that provides the water for the resort and conforms to European standards for mineral water. The borehole of 87m delivers 11700 litre of water at a temperature of 26 - 30 °C, all under its own natural pressure. Due to the fact that the water is forced through a calcium formation under its own pressure, there is no need for pumps or filters. By the time the water reaches the top it is sparkling clean. The resort is situated in a wide valley between beautiful mountains with an excellent opportunity to explore the mountain side with a 4km hiking trail with its weird rock formations covered in lichen and over 850 Fynbos species that attracts hundreds of bird species. Cottages: There are 10 chalets of which 4 are two bedroom (en suite) with sitting area in kitchen with wooden fireplace and 6 are one bedroom open plan units all with double doors that open onto the Terrace which is perfect spot for sundowners, to light up a braai or do Stargazing from your private Jacuzzi. In the morning you can take your breakfast outside into the country air and experience the superabundance of bird life which includes visiting Egyptian geese, blue crane, Veroux eagle and other visitors to the indigenous natural Fynbos Mountains that include sugar birds, butterflies, dragon flies and many more. There is also a Reed dam with weaver birds further up the winding gravel road. Less
