WESTERN CAPE ACCOMMODATION
We offer our guests the opportunity to kick-back, relax and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the Klein Karoo, situated 350km from Cape Town and 100km from Oudtshoorn. The Lodge is situated in the heart of the Klein Karoo, nestled in the foothills of the Rooiberg Mountains, and extends over some 14 000 hectares of Fynbos and Succulent Karoo.
Eight suites are nestled within the magnificent indigenous Knysna Forest. The suites are built in a gorge, so access is from ground level and the front of the suite is built on stilts ranging from two to six meters above ground, giving you breath-taking views of the Karatara Gorge or the majestic Knysna Forest.
