About Cederkloof Botanical Retreat

Welcome to Cederkloof Botanical Retreat

In general:
The Cederkloof Botanical Retreat forms part of a working farm 8km from Citrusdal, a quiet and tranquil space set in a beautiful valley abutting a wilderness area. Part of the landscape is still wild and opens to numerous views with beautiful rock formations from where you can watch stunning moon rises and have the stars put on a show just for you.
The retreat is situated in a wide valley between striking mountains, providing an excellent opportunity to explore the mountainside on the 4km hiking trail with its weird rock formations covered in lichen and more than 850 fynbos species that attract hundreds of bird species.
The retreat is perfect for a weekend getaway from Cape Town, signature birthday parties, or romantic hideaways. Solo journeys are taken here for quiet recovery, families with kids of all ages for adventures in nature, couples find perfect alone time and groups of friends celebrate birthdays. Whatever age or group size there is something special here for you.

The accommodation consists of 10 well-equipped self-catering cottages, nestled in a Fynbos-covered kloof. We have six single units that sleep two people, and four double units that sleep four. All rooms are en-suite, some bathrooms have showers or baths or both.
Each unit has double doors that open onto the terrace – the perfect spot for sundowners, to light up a braai or do stargazing from your private jacuzzi.
The luxurious beds are all king size unless you request single beds with percale cotton duvet covers and sheets. 
The private jacuzzis are fed with natural spring water.
In the morning, you can take your breakfast outside into the country air and experience the absolute abundance of bird life, and other visitors to the indigenous natural Fynbos mountains that include sugar birds, butterflies, dragonflies and many more. 
Not every unit has cellphone signal or Wi-Fi. The best Wi-Fi is in units 9 and 10, but those are also the least private units. However, you can access unlimited, free Wi-Fi at the central building.

                  A magical heart just outside Citrusdal. What an amazing experience it was. A beautiful, cozy tent beneath the trees. Sounds of birds singing and the stream flowing. Spending the days out exploring the magnificent botanical hikes with so much to observe and playing cards on bean bags watching the sky turn orange and purple while the sun sets. A trip that you let it all go, release what no longer serves you invite in the new. Simple, quaint and peaceful! I couldn’t recommend this magical place enough :)

                  The valley is incredible. Love that you have brought in indigenous plants and removed the grass. So loved listening to birds constantly. Felt like I was in a bird kingdom. Chalet number 9 was a good size for two adults. A balcony and hot tub .I feel that the chalet could have been cleaner. The Olifants hike leads up to breath taking views and a 360 degree view. So worth the effort.

                  I can recommend Cederkloof Botanical Retreat as one of the last bastions to enjoy indigenous fynbos. The chalets are private and secluded surrounded by a delight of flowering, fynbos gardens. And with this wonderful array of botanical delights, this is indeed a birder’s paradise!!The interior is up style with quality finishes and kitchenware. And now I have not even mentioned the pleasure of a private heated jacuzzi! Hours spent with glasses of wine and mugs of coffee- a pure delight!Note to management: Please don’t change this delightful Retreat.

                  This is an enchanting place. Everything about the cottage was designed for simple and profound comfort from the king sized bed to the huge bath and indoor fire as well as the spring fed jacuzzi and outdoor fire pit. The flowers and birds were wonderful and there was a short walk as well as a longer one, in the fynbos, with lovely views of the valley.
