This season, you can enjoy roaring fires, cosy cottages and scenic campsites for much less. With CapeNature’s sizzling winter offer, you’ll get 40% off on all self-catering and camping accommodation at its reserves in the Western Cape.

Finding it difficult to choose a spot to unwind and recharge this winter season? Here are a few suggestions that will have you packing your bags.
Spend your weekend exploring birdlife and stretches of deserted beach at Rocherpan Nature Reserve. Or catch up on a good book and drink in the tranquil setting of Rocherpan’s gorgeous eco-cabins. Each self-catering unit has a deck and braai area overlooking the pan, and for the chillier evenings, an oh-so-cosy fireplace. Pictures courtesy of CapeNature
Fancy a Karoo experience? If you want to get away from it all, the Gamkaberg Nature Reserve outside Oudtshoorn is just the spot. Visitors are few and far between, but there’s no shortage of spectacular views, odd-looking succulents and total quiet. Ou Kraal has recently been upgraded with four hiker’s huts and basic ablutions. You’ll feel like you are in the middle of nowhere!
The Cederberg Wilderness Area is any adventurer’s dream – thousands of rock formations waiting to be explored, ancient San and Khoekhoe rock paintings, incredible landscapes and hiking routes to pick and choose from… At the recently launched Algeria Mountain Cottages in the Cederberg you’ll find a large stoep for sunny days and a wood-burning stove for frosty weather.
Keurbooms River Nature Reserve is a small nature paradise just outside Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. Here visitors can canoe on the beautiful Keurbooms River, enjoy bird watching and overnight in a remote log cabin. The rustic Whiskey Creek Cabin is famous for its spacious deck where the whole family – or a large crowd of friends – can gather for fireside chat.
