Cederberg Ridge: Classic Courtyard Room

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Stealthily tucked into the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, Simbavati Cederberg Ridge is an intimate 11-roomed lodge, where warm service, sumptuous accommodation and delicious food coalesce to create an unforgettable stay. But it’s the lodge’s unrivalled setting – on a 3 000-hectare fruit farm in the heart of the Cederberg Wilderness Reserve – that knocks it out of the park.

Characterised by untamed landscapes, red-sandstone mountains, ancient rock art and flaming sunsets, the Cederberg emanates a kind of otherworldly majesty and sacred solitude you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world. And even though the town of Clanwilliam is a mere eight kilometres away, the hotel’s surreptitious perch on a mountainside creates a sense of utter seclusion where you can – G&T in hand – soak up the raw and rugged beauty of the untamed surroundings.

The rooms are light, bright and utterly luxurious, with earthy hues and natural textures creating a pared-back aesthetic that plays second fiddle to the spectacular surroundings.


The Classic Courtyard Room is located in the main homestead, offering the convenience of proximity to lodge facilities. It overlooks the courtyard and indigenous grasses, but has no mountain view. The room is wheelchair friendly with plenty of space to manoeuvre.
