In South Africa, most people feel that experiencing nature is the ultimate goal and Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve, set in the Cederberg Mountains, has created beautiful living accommodations that truly reflect that purpose.

Just three kilometers outside Kagga Kamma’s main lodge, visitors will find the “Star Suite.” Nobody has showcased the raw beauty of South Africa quite like this before.

Staying at the “Star Suite,” you are guaranteed fresh air and a tranquil atmosphere as you will be bunking outdoors in the midst of the vast South African wilderness.

The reserve’s open-air suite is built right into centuries-old rock formations and offers an incredible view of the fynbos plains. The room is designed to offer visitors complete immersion in the natural wonders of South Africa and isolation from the stresses of everyday life.

The only decor this suite has is the glittering Milky Way above and the spectacular surrounding wildlife. If it is ambiance you are after, you can enjoy the spirited babble of native birds or the wind rushing through rock formations nearby. Each day you spend at Kagga Kamma’s “Star Suite” will be bookended by the awe-inspiring sight of African sunrises and sunsets.
