Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge is a self catering Cederberg Accommodation camp on a 517 hectare private nature reserve that borders the 80,000 hectare Cederberg Reserve. Offering comfortable cabins and tents overlooking the valley, a cool Lapa for gathering and cooking as well as a fire warmed open air Boma, salt water swimming pool and stunning settings make this the ideal hub from which to explore the Cederberg. A short distance away is the Olifants River which has the richest variety of endemic fish species of all rivers south of the Zambezi, including the Yellow Fish and Red fin Minnow.


Conservation Highlights:

  1. Gecko Creek offers land so unspoilt by light that the stars are like 'diamonds on velvet' and one can see a shooting star every 10 minutes.
  2. Medicinal plants such as Buchu and the famous Rooibos Tea have their natural habitat on the reserve.
  3. The reserve is home to indigenous species such as the rare Cape Leopard, lynx and aardwolf.
  4. Birders can enjoy up to 165 species at Gecko Creek, including the Black Eagle.
