Gecko Creek is set in a beautiful part of the Cederberg, giving you an amazing feeling of being truly out in nature and away from it all. The accommodation is small huts and permanent tents, which is rustic but great in that it doesn't impose on the natural setting too much. Everything about the venue was clean and neat, the showers were hot, and the swimming pool was close by and a great thing to have during the hot days. The nearby Leopard's rock is an amazing place to explore, with some ancient Khoisan rock paintings that Nico will gladly direct you to. The biggest highlight during my stay was Nico and Galia's hospitality and cooking. Although this is usually a self catering venue, with a well stocked kitchen, we were lucky enough to be fed lunch and dinner every day that we were there. Highly recommend this venue to people who want to get back to nature in an unspoilt, rustic venue, with just the right amount of creature comforts.

Arriving in the Cederberg for a group retreat, I didn’t know what to expect from the lodge. I can definitely say that the new management have outperformed and exceeded all my expectations. From delicious home cooked food with careful presentation and attention to detail to new looking tents and a clear blue pool. Definitely a place to recommend.
