Tucked on the scenic Kogelberg Nature Reserve just a short drive from Gordon’s Bay, CapeNature’s Kogelberg Oudebosch Eco Cabins are perfectly positioned for uninterrupted views and some unique Cape fynbos exploration.
These architecturally and ecologically self-catering timber cabins offer the perfect escape for city-slickers looking to tap out of technology and embrace a slower-paced lifestyle. The Kogelberg Nature Reserve presents perhaps the finest example of mountain fynbos in the Western Cape and is a world-renowned World Heritage Site.
When you’re not making the most of the stunning natural scenery and birdwatch, relax in the central natural pool while soaking in the views, curl up by the woodfire or lay a little longer in bed and watch the sunrise from the huge north-facing windows.
The only thing left to do is decide which of the six eco-friendly accommodation options to settle down at. All of the units come with a combination of Eskom and solar-powered energy, a fitted kitchen with all the essentials, and a braai space to create some truly African memories.
Five of the cabins can sleep up to six persons – a perfect excuse to gather some friends or family for a getaway adventure.
