Escape from the pressures of modern life and retreat to Kagga Kamma, located in the peaceful southern Cederberg Mountains. Away from mobile phones, traffic pollution, highways and city lights you will breathe a sigh and enjoy the silence and starlit skies. The stunning location of the lodge was once home to the Bushmen; today many of their ancient cave paintings are still clearly visible on the rocks (some dating back 6,000 years). This spiritual land offers spectacular scenery, majestic mountains and phenomenal night skies, where the Milky Way, billions of stars, planets, satellites and shooting stars may be seen by the naked eye.
Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve is located in an untouched wilderness area three hours from Cape Town and near Ceres, South Africa. The reserve is well known for its scenic beauty and dramatic rock formations typical of the Cederberg; has a rich cultural heritage and is a unique safari in South Africa. On our San Cultural Tour guests can appreciate the ancient Bushman living-sites first hand and get an in-depth interpretation of the rock paintings from one of our expert guides.
