This place is amazing, the track in is rough, but it is remote. The boma is the central space with communal kitchen. The safari tents are excellent value for 2 people, but are a little old and too close together. Go for the cabins they looked amazing with better views. As soon as we turned up we regretted not booking...

the 3 nights we stayed at Gecko Creek were the last 3 of our 2 week SA holiday and what an amazing couple of days it was. The Ceder Mountains are absolutely stunning, raw & untouched, perfect for hiking and outdoor lovers. We had one of the cabins and my husband worried about mosquitos but for some bizarre reason the...

Our part included seven adults and the staff were very attentive to each of us and made us feel very welcome. We were given a quick safety briefing of 'do's' and 'don'ts', after which you are left to your own devices to enjoy the peace and tranquility of being in nature. Some enjoyable trails are reached from the main house...

The venue doesn't offer much for the discerning traveller except for a stunning location and stunning views. Accommodation and amenities are basic. I think it is nice for an adventurous person, but not everyone's cup of tea.

Essentially a backpackers hostel. No locks on the tent cabins so belongings are not safe. Definitely needs maintenance. Only one bathroom so some of the accommodations are not close by so not very convenient.

If tranquility and serenity got married, this is where they'd go on honeymoon. The camp is truly amazing, and Monica and Glenn who run it are so very helpful and kind. Fantastic views and nearby attractions, with rock paintings on Leopard's Rock, which is basically in the camp. Do yourself a favour and stay in one of the cabins! Much...

We stayed in a safari tent. It was different to the ones online, but still ok. The views were brilliant and the atmosphere was extremely relaxed. We enjoyed the meal the hostess had prepared. The ablutions are a bit far from the tent, so plan your trips carefully. The hosts were both very friendly, authentic people. They invited us to...

We stayed here for two nights but I wish we could have stayed longer. It is absolutely beautiful here and you really feel like you are getting away from it all. My husband I stayed in one of the cabins and were able to enjoy the view of the mountains from our hammock. Our hosts were very friendly and informative...
