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.

Besides the lovely cottage, amenities and nature...we mostly were impressed with the service/staff. We had some car trouble from taking the scenic route...Anja, Yvette and staff jumped in to help with caring hearts. We will definitely come back but next time for longer!

If you like to be outdoors and fynbos then this is the place to go to. There are beautiful hiking trails and a labyrinth. The jacuzzi on your doorstep is relaxing. The place is near town yet far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. Beautiful setting.

My partner and I had a lovely time. The place was serene, clean and quiet. Birds chirping, jacuzzi, potjie pot, furnished kitchen with enough utensils if memory serves. We were on day 8 or 9 of a 14 day trip so some of the places are a blur but I remember the good time we had at Cederkloof.

Such a beautiful establishment. The bird life was amazing to watch and listen to. The jacuzzi was a great way to relax after a long journey. Would highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.

Absolutely beautiful & tranquil in nature. Comfortable and private, well equipped cottages with stunning views of the Cederkloof, Olifants River valley and the Cederberg mountains. Lovely walks in the kloof and surrounding hills. Just the peaceful time away in nature we needed
