A WILD NIGHT
Guests at the Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve in the Cederberg mountains will share a home with zebras, antelopes, black wildebeest and even leopards
IF Fred and Wilma Flintstone were real – this would be their ideal honeymoon location.
A luxury safari retreat is offering modern day guests the chance to sleep in a boutique bedroom on a rocky outcrop- with no walls.
Guests at the Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve in the Cederberg mountains of South Africa, have only a rock for shelter as they snuggle down for a night in a king-size bed.
But the unparalleled views of the stars at night and the African outback at dawn certainly make up for it.
With no neighbouring accommodation for miles, guests can experience nature, the stillness and beautiful views of four different mountain ranges, without disruption.
While there aren’t any other humans around, the reserve is home to a number of animals including zebras, antelopes, black wildebeest and even leopards.
Facilities at the under the stars room also include a bath tub, outdoor shower, and a natural rock pool.
Guests travel to the Star Suite on quad bikes or safari vehicle and are left overnight equipped with torches, two-way radio, lanterns, dinner and drinks.
Kagga Kamma’s Resort Manager, Tania Steenkamp, said: “This is one of Kagga Kamma’s many unique features – a night under the starlit skies with all the comforts of a suite.”
Tania continued: “Kagga Kamma is definitely one of the most beautiful, and exceptional places in South Africa.
“The distinctive landscape with its rocky outcrops, open plains and almost surreal look and feel is very inspirational; it awakens a feeling that nature is much larger than we can ever be.”

For those who like a little bit more protection from nature, Kagga Kamma also offers ten “cave bedrooms” with roofs and walls that are built into the natural sandstone formations on the nature reserve.
There are also thatched huts available to rent that resemble the traditional dwellings of the San clans that inhabited the reserve many years ago.
