"Peaceful but Average"
We went to Kagga Kamma on a family weekend with holiday club points. Stayed in a Chalet for 3 nights. The place is really far from town and the road is not ideal for a normal car. Our chalet was nice and clean, good location. No tv, no cellphone reception which was great. We did a 4km hike - nice and easy. Saw Rock art at the swimming pool. 2 days is more than enough as there is not much to do, but a nice break away from the busy city. The resort is very expensive and as locals we chilled at the chalet and did the hiking routes. Beautiful sunsets. Camp site doesn't look that nice. Wouldn't recommend. Glad we could experience Kagga Kamma but will not recommend for the price you pay.
"Awesome place and people"
You do not often get a place like Kagga Kamma Lodge in the Cederberg. Although it is a bit far to travel on the gravel road, we did it with our Corsa bakkie several times, with no hassle. We notice that a tractor with scraper keep the road in good condition most of the time. 2016 Christmas day was a very special they for us because my son that travels a lot abroad and was working for several years in the USA, France etc came and visit us and took us for the lunch at the Lodge. This time we travel in style with his car. Lol. What an awesome reception greet us! With nicely decorated ice cold glasses filled with a cocktail fit for a king we was led out to the back lawn under umbrellas till they call us in for the buffet. All the staff was friendly as always and very help full. All the tables were decorated according to the occasion, even with the candles. Pretty pretty awesome. The display off the food, although small, was very elegant and the hunger took over. The starters - all six of them, was awesome, and cater for every taste. You did not wait for anything and as soon as the first starter plate got their way to the kitchen, the main course appear. And what a variety! 4 stunning meat, 7 mouth watering veggie dishes, all made with extra flair. While we were dining the waitresses were very subtle around you to take care of your needs, even management came by several times to make sure we are okay and if we need anything else. The 3 desserts was out of the world, specialy the creamy cheesecake with berries. As we often visit Kagga Kamma we see the huge effort these people made to improve from the rest rooms right through to the kitchen and dining room. When visiting during the winter there is always a welcoming fire in the bar-lounge that makes you feel at home. We experience the whole transformation that the lodge went through the past year or so. From the buildings inside and out, to the menu. All for the benefit to the guest. This is highly recommended if you want to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city. Nature is on your doorstep and you feel very much part of it. Luxury chalets or camping, the choice is yours. But be sure, it is off the best. From arrival to departing you are taking care of by the friendly staff Kagga Kamma, this family will come back time after time!
Be prepared for some distance of dirt road driving to get to Kagga Kamma, some of which can be quite rough. We stayed in the chalets, they are grouped together a little away from the rest of the resort together with the camping ground and swimming pool. They are all very well spaced so that you feel like you are there all alone. There is no cell phone signal on the reserve but wifi data is available at a cost at the bar. Not sure how many animals are on the reserve as I did 80 km of mountain biking (there is plenty of soft sand to negotiate!) at sunrise and only came across a handful of buck and a wildebeest. Our friends managed to puncture a tyre and the reserve staff were only too willing to assist, the sand makes it difficult to jack up a vehicle. The night sky is breathtaking as is the silence. Unfortunately there was a water pipe burst that left us without water for quite awhile which was not the best experience but I guess these things happen. The chalets seem to be very well priced (and well equipped) compared to the other options.
"Great time at Kagga Kamma"
We spent four nights at Kagga Kamma, which is probably as much as you would want to be there. We stayed first in one of the 'caves' and then moved to a thatched hut for the last two nights. We thought the hut was a lot nicer - mainly because it was bigger - although the cave was OK. The excursion we went on was excellent with a first rate commentary by Sam, the guide. The Sen and Kai rock paintings are very impressive even though they are simple and not big. Best of all was the extraordinary austere beauty of the countryside. Food was good and not expensive. And the staff were all friendly and pleasant.
"Very expensive for what you get"
The location of Kagga Kamma is really nice, but it's very hard to find due to bad directions. The lodge is also really expensive and you don't get much for the price: the gamedrives are very poor. The food is nice but also not stunning. If you drive a bit furter you can see much more animals and can have a spectaculair gamedrive for less money. If you want to enjoy a nice view, it's a good place. But pricewise I really won't recommend it!
