Kogelberg Nature Reserve - Oudebosch

After our trip to Mauritius, we re-packed our bags and headed straight off to Kogelberg Nature Reserve to stay in one of their new self-catering eco-cabins at Oudebosch. There are only 5 cabins which helps keep it exclusive and peaceful. The cottages are all beautifully designed, built with wood and stone and totally in keeping with their surroundings. The interiors are modern, comfortable and inviting, quite a surprise to their more rustic exterior.

Our cabin had a lovely kitchen and open plan living area that opened up onto an outdoor deck and courtyard with a braai. I really enjoyed the flow of our cabin and how you literally feel as though you are ‘in nature’ with all the sliding doors open and huge windows that look out onto magical views. Breath-taking mountains all around and fynbos on your doorstep.

There is a small eco-pool which is so welcoming after a hike or bike ride in the reserve and of course you can also walk down to the Palmiet River which is fantastic to swim in.

I always enjoy staying at any of the CapeNature reserves but I think Kogelberg has set a new precedent! Kogelberg is a World Heritage Site so it’s well worth visiting even if it’s just for a day trip.
