Travellers' Choice
Cederkloof Botanical Retreat is a place of restoration and healing, and a passion for science and common sense. Set in a beautiful valley abutting a wilderness area, the largest dedicated private fynbos gardens in Africa is now six years in the making. Wild and open landscapes await the more adventurous traveller where stark rock formations and stunning moon rises over the Cederberg can be witnessed from your chalet. You’ll also pass a number of rehabilitated Cedar tree saplings and may catch sight of duiker, steenbok, muskeljaatkat, baboons and leopard droppings. We have a lot of silence, though the chattering of more than 125 rare (and not so rare) bird species may disturb your peace. 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 litres 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. Cottages: There are 10 chalets of which 4 are two-bedroom (en suite) with sitting area in kitchen with wood fireplace and 6 are one-bedroom open plan units all with double doors that open onto the terrace which is the 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 life which includes blue agama lizards, blue crane, Veroux eagle, sugarbirds, butterflies, dragonflies and many more.

Having stayed here numerous times over the years it's almost like coming home to a cozy house with adequate amenities, a fantastic relaxing jacuzzi and a glorious view while feeling secluded from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.
