The location of this great accommodation is truly fascinating, with views all around the Cederberg. We stayed in a cabin which only contained a big bed but was clean and very charming. Everyone has enough space so the place is not crowded even though there are quite a few campers here. This is not a party camp but a peaceful...

We spent a few days with friends at the lodge and although very rustic it is a super place to visit for those who are looking to get close to nature and relax. The owner Linton Pope has good knowledge of the area and is always willing to share information with the visitors. The staff are friendly and very accommodating....

Thanks Glen, Monica and Farai When we arrived it was super hot, we got upgraded from a Safari tent to cabin(with an amazing Hammock, apparently Glen's LOL). The place is simply fantastic, it has everything you need, so just bring yourself. There is fair bit to do in around the camp, and will only get better once the creative juices...

First a few negatives:- The wooden chalets weren't terribly clean; The ablution facilities are not very private (a little bit of the full Monty is necessary when hopping out of the shower, as there are no private cubicles in which to get dressed); The distances one has to walk for even a basic ablution use or a hot cup of...

Such a beautiful place ...wow! An amazing location which you have to check out. My wife and I pitched our tent at this great place for next to nothing. The facilities were great.

Me and my husband had the most relaxed, magical and peaceful weekend. We stayed in one of the 3 cabins, great view, friendly staff and clean facilities. Cherry on top of the cake was one hour Swedish massage. Magical rock formations, birds of all colors and sizes and great hiking trails. Relaxed weekend, but with a pinch of adventure! Thank...

A wonderful place to disconnect (while still accessing strong wifi). Gecko Creek has a variety of different 'rooms' - from basic tents to cabins - to choose from, but the draw of this place isn't in how well equipped your tent is - it's in the common areas, the location's access to innumerable interesting things to see and do (hiking,...
