About Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge

Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge offers self-catering Cederberg accommodation, located on a 517-hectare private nature reserve. Accommodation is provided in cabins and tents overlooking the valleys and mountains.

We offer full self-catering facilities as well as prepared meals on request. Features include a cool lapa for gathering and cooking, a fire-warmed open-air boma, a stunning salt-water swimming pool, and outstanding ablution facilities.

This mountain hideaway borders the 80,000-hectare Cederberg Reserve, a world of awe-inspiring rock formations, bushman caves and endless hiking trails. The area offers the solitude and grandeur setting of ancient and mystical times, with magical sunrises and sunsets, while the Olifants River is a short distance away, allowing for idyllic swimming and picnics.

The Cederberg is home to the regal Cape leopard, baboons, lynx, antelope and 165 bird species, including the magnificent Black eagle and Eagle owls. Economical scenic flights are also available over the West Coast and Cederberg, and an award-winning vineyard and horseback riding are optional day trips nearby.

We do not allow children under the age of 16 years.

A perfect weekend getaway. We spent two nights at Gecko Creek. We were welcomed warmly on arrival, taken on a tour of all facilities and were then shown to our cabin that has a picturesque view. Beauty surrounds you at every moment. Kitchen, braai and ablution facilities were all great. Meeting Maliko was the highlight of our trip. He took us on a sunset hike up onto Leopard Rock where he played drums and we watched the sun go down. The next morning we joined him for a sunrise meditation up on the mountain to welcome the sun. His views on life and the authenticity of his soul has touched our...

Place was ok, pool was greenish thus we didn't get in, found the wood cabin overpriced as is just a room with a bed (no bathroom), food also overprized- 150 for a plate. A guy performed a fire show n took us to a short hike which was cool and entertaining
