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. Even eating out at Kagga Kamma will be a matchless experience when you visit the restaurant for breakfast and lunch, and an outdoor lapa surrounded by beautiful rock formations for dinner under the starlit night skies in summer time. 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

I enjoyed the tranquility, staff where friendly, food excellant, a bit out of the way , just wished we could have seen more animals . They need to keep a hand on the chalets ,eg. doors and windows that are sagging , also need to make sure there are no pieces of glass lying

My husband and I stayed for two night in KK in Nov 2018. We had a wonderful stay. This is the perfect spot to people who love the outdoors, open landscapes, exploring and stars. We enjoyed a beautiful rock art tour and a magical night sleeping outdoors in one of the star suites.

An awesome week in a stunningly beautiful environment. The road which included 35 km of gravel, was not at all bad and quite suitable for a normal sedan vehicle. The resort staff went out of their way to ensure a most pleasant and rewarding visit. The friendliness of all the

Is there a fishing area near the campsite?
As far as my knowledge goes, I am not aware of any area where fishing is available close to the resort. On your way to Kagga Kamma from Cape Town, there is a Trout Farm at the Du Toitskloof Resort just after you have passed through the tunnel where you can rent a rod and tackle to catch your own fish. I would advise to enquire directly from the Hotel if and when fishing is available. Happy fishing!

Being part of the "Koue Bokkeveld", visitors should expect extreme weather throughout the year. Hot to very hot during the day, cooling rapidly overnight to cold and even frost in the morning. Personally I find the early part of the year (Jan-April) to be more lenient with day temperatures and conducing pool-time. Do take sufficient suitable and comfortable clothing for protection against the sun and also for possible cold.

If you don't go for the full board option, where do you go to eat lunch? Anything nearby or bring your own?
There is a restaurant on site and you can go out of the park to the closest town or even further, if you want to travel

Anything interesting to stop by or see during drive from Cape Town to your facility?
Hi. Sorry for not replying earlier :(.On our trip there we have passed winelands, orchards and beautiful little towns and breathtaking mountains. There is little opportunity to shop as all the towns are small and don't have much to offer in the way of retail therapy. There is a small shop at Kagga Kamma which sells the odd tee-shirt or bracelet but nothing else. It's not a trip you take for shopping, more for sightseeing :)

"Caves are not "real". Star Suite is a MUST. Absolutely magical."
"More of a luxury adventure, so its a scenic cave or more spacious rondavel"
"Star Suite and/or Sky Suite - do both if you can"
"Choose a rock hut for a difference in life."
"Must stay in the caves."
