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.

Host wonderful and her dinner stunning but totally overpriced for a wood cabin with NO water, electricity, toilet, light or candles and decent bedding.

Great peaceful and quiet campsite with good facilities. We had a great weekend of rest, enjoyed the interaction with a variety of visitors, local and international in the communal kitchen and Lapa.

We had a great stay (4 days) at Gecko Creek. You feel very welcome here, this oase in the wilderness. We had a cabin, a room with a view, a rare view at nature. And suprising: very good wifi, very strong!
