The Kagga Kamma Cave Hotel in South Africa
Sustainable travel concepts aren't a new thing – as highlighted by Buro 24/7 in the past – yet when it comes to Kagga Kamma in South Africa, there is decidedly something different to enjoy, in all its natural appeal.
In 1986 Willie de Waal, Pieter de Waal and Pieter Loubser bought Kagga Kamma as well as three adjacent farms. The owners immediately saw the potential of the beautiful and secluded 15 000 hectare properties, and they soon realised that people wanted to share and preserve the area on a wider basis, deciding to turn the space into a Nature Reserve. From there Kagga Kamma grew into what it is today – a luxurious resort in an unique environment, offering memorable experiences while preserving nature.
Situated in the south-eastern region of the Cederberg, it has been home to the traditional 'Bushmen' for centuries. The red-brown weathered sandstone formations seen here are typical to the area and it's home to many different types of wild animal; The Burchell's Zebra and a variety of Antelope species... All to be enjoyed in various accomodation offerings, from luxury camping to dedicated 'cave rooms' and spa packages.
