Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge

Finding bliss in the Cederbergs
After a very bumpy (7km or so) ride deep into the hills and valleys of the Cederberg Mountains, I was beyond thrilled to arrive at Gecko Creek Lodge. If you're looking to get closer to nature or to go camping while visiting the Western Cape, the Cederbergs are the place.

I watched sun fall snugly between the mountains from my tent (pictured here). You can bring your own tent but we opted to use Gecko's which was complete with two twin beds and included linens. Gecko also offers wood cabins with hammocks on a small front patio. I can only imagine how amazing they must be, under the thousands of twinkly stars at night.

With a swimming pool, hiking trails to wander, a nearby river, plus a lapa and boma (dining/cooking area) for mingling with the other guests, there was no shortage of activities, even at such a small property.

What I found most surprising was the North American timber wolf named Hoka living on the premises. Somewhat domesticated, he was free to roam during the day and kept on a lead at twilight. It added a really interesting and wild dynamic to the quite, blissful experience at this lodge.
