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!
"outstanding location, but management could be improved"
The reserve is simply stunning. It offers the best of the Cederberg, coupled with professional ranger guides and tours. Try the rock-art! We have been staying on the camping site, which is incredibly far from the reception and restaurant (you have to go by car, while the other type of accommodation seem a bit packed), and beware, it has no power supply. At the reception, with found 3 people, none of them smiling, a bit polite. The restaurant is in a very nice location, but is pretentious; the food was OK, but no more than this. Quick tip for the management: try a simpler menu (3-4 choices per course), with well-proven recipes, and maybe the food would come out earlier than the one and a half hour it took for us!
"Sleep under the stars"
Very interesting experience , we booked the outcrop room which is basically your bed under the stars in the reserve(desert) There are no dangerous animals here so one should not be afraid. You have a shower and toiled and also you can alone barbeque your dinner. There is no mobile phone signal or internet. They drive you there by quads and leave the quads with you. So what you can do is to drive back to the main resort if you panic somehow in the night. The ride is about 15 min by quad but pretty simple , little chance to get lost. We made it till morning and even had a good sleep. Get some warmer clothing, preferably a hooded sweater.
