Cederkloof Botanical Retreat: Luxury Forest Tent

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom

Say the name and you can already smell the pure, fragrant air… Part of a working farm just outside Citrusdal, on the edge of the wilderness, this scenic escape is perched on fynbos-covered slopes overlooking the Olifants River valley, and surrounded by the Cederberg’s striking rock formations. The 10 cottages (six sleep 2 people, four sleep 4 people) are set amid the fynbos gardens, with floral beauty, birdsong and fresh air guaranteed. Each has a sleek jacuzzis fed with spring water, with views that stretch to eternity. There are also Forest Tents and The Opstal, a five-bedroomed house sleeping up to 10 people.


The property’s small tented camp sits in an indigenous forest among rock outcroppings. The bell tents feature a double bed, carpets, and a small kitchenette. Each tent has electricity and is close to outdoor showers and ablution facilities.
