Traveled via Citrusdal and the beautiful Middelberg Pass. Gravel roads are part of our heritage and we will have lost something when they are all replaced by ugly tar! Service was good and Cave 7 was cleaned every day. Some one complained about the time to fill a bath. The bath rooms (at the caves anyway) do need upgrading. Replace the baths with a good shower and tick that complaint. The air conditioner was noisey. Thank goodness it was turned off during the night. If you don't like the heat of summer, and it gets very hot here, rather visit in between autumn to spring. Food was excellent! All of the staff were very pleasant and eager to deliver good service. The waitresses Claudine and Lize spring to mind, but all were great! The setting is absolutely magical. A lot of thought must have gone into making the buildings blend into the landscape. Well done! The rock formations out of this world! We were lucky to have a thunder storm that created wonderful lighting effects at sunset. The game drive was excellent! As well as seeing animals the veld was very interesting, as were the views of the Kouebokkeveld and Cederberg mountains. Our guide, Wessel was excellent and patiently gave us explanations to our questions. His interpretation and knowledge was much appreciated. All in all, costly, but a great experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kagga Kamma is an absolute treat for travellers seeking a unique and inspiring experience. On your visit you will see a part of Africa that is unlike any other. The Cederberg Mountain’s otherworldly rock formations, a crisp sky stretching endlessly overhead and beautiful rock art from an ancient culture, is the backdrop to a wonderful adventure. Kagga Kamma’s accommodation options are as unique as the landscape it is set in. The Bushman Lodge offers spacious en-suite thatched rondavels/huts. The famous 'cave suites' built against the sandstone rock formations will take you back to a prehistoric time without taking away any modern-day luxuries. Kagga Kamma also offers a one of a kind Outcrop open-air “room” where guests can sleep under the stars in sheer luxury - definitely a not-to-be-missed experience.Speaking of the stars...Take a tour into the milky way when you visit our mini-observatory. It promises to be an inspirational experience when you view the Karoo night skies through our 10-inch telescope. While the sun is out you can opt for a journey back in time with our popular rock art tours. Our expert ranger will interpret the 6000 year old Bushmen paintings and living sites scattered all across the nature reserve.Other activities to be enjoyed at Kagga Kamma include relaxing nature drives with our knowledgeable guides, hiking trails, quad bike safaris, mountain bike trails, a 4x4 route and our Kagga Kamma Relax Spa.

There is also a pub and lounge area with Wi-Fi internet, as well as satellite television for watching sports events. GPS co-ordinates:Latitude: S 32 44 45Longitude: E 19 33 46 ... more less
