Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve boasts an excellent location in the south-eastern part of the Cederberg in South Africa and offers an incredible outdoor experience. Many years ago, the San people called this region home, and their story is told through the Rock Art paintings still present in the reserve today. The beautiful Cederberg region features dry mountain fynbos, several shrubs, carpets of flowers, and the endemic protea, which is found higher up in the mountains. Wildlife and bird species abound and make for an interesting experience in the great outdoors of the Karoo. Kagga Kamma is located near Ceres, about three hours north of Cape Town. Guests can either drive or charter a flight to Kagga Kamma’s airstrip.
Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve provides shelter to a variety of wildlife species. Frequently spotted are antelope like eland and gemsbok, while the lesser spotted species include the Cape hare, the striped polecat and the rock hyrax. Perhaps the most impressive predator found on the reserve is the elusive Cape leopard, who prefers the canyon west of the property. For bird lovers, the area offers a diverse array of bird species to observe.
Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve is a year-round destination and offers something for everyone. Summer brings out the childlike sense of adventure, with balmy days at the pool and cool evenings gazing at the stars. Winter means dry weather and sparse vegetation, allowing for better wildlife viewing as the animals seek water. During springs, the flowers come alive and paint a vibrant picture across this stunning landscape.

The fascinating Rock Art tours offer incredible insight into the San way of life many years ago and are not to be missed. Other activities include hiking, quad biking, 4WD tours, and relaxing spa experiences.
