If you are looking for a completely different accommodation experience in the Baviaanskloof, here it is!
Absolutely unique. A natural cave that has been enclosed with timber and rock and fitted to sleep 8 people. Facilities include fresh drinkable running water, an open air hot shower (gas geyser), flush toilet (with a view!), small kitchen fitted with gas stove and sink.
A braai place is situated outside the cave and there is also an open boma for those long evenings spent next to a crackling fire with friends and/or family.
Solar lights provide the light and creates a relaxed atmosphere. The accommodation is self catering and you need to bring your own bedding preferably sleeping bags.
Please enquire when you make your booking. Firewood, braai meat and fresh home baked bread can be purchased at the farm.
Please arrange these when booking.
The mouth of the cave faces east resulting in spectacular views of the sunrise and romantic moons. At night the clear Karoo sky offers excellent opportunities to star gazers.
Due to the fact that the cave forms part of the mountain, it is cool in the summer but warm during the winter. This makes the Makkedaat Grot/Cave a good choice throughout the year.
For the young (and the young at heart) the "Lions Den" was recently added as a second "bedroom".
This extension is extremely popular with the children.
