Koro Lodge

Located in the dramatic Cederberg Mountains, Koro Lodge is a beautifully-restored 3-bedroom farmhouse, making it ideal as an exclusive getaway for families and friends.

The well-appointed en suite bedrooms radiate a warm and welcoming ambience while the lounge and dining areas are comfortable and cosy with a crackling fire to be enjoyed on cold winter nights. During the Cederberg's hot summers, visitors can make the most of the beautiful garden, sparkling infinity pool and the cool-tiled terrace - the perfect alfresco dining spot.

Fully inclusive and created to deliver flexible, independent-minded holiday living, Koro has a team of dedicated in-house staff who cater to your every need. A private chef whips up both family favourites and special-occasion meals, and a personal guide is on hand to lead you on drives and walks in search of the Cederberg's secrets. Enjoy a range of fun activities from canoeing to mountain biking, marvel at Bushman rock paintings and rare plants, or simply relax with picnics and treasure hunts amid stunning scenery at this charming retreat in the Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve.

Style & Décor

Echoing accents of a traditional Cape Dutch design with its deep-set verandah and low porch roof, Koro Lodge was once the estate's original farmhouse and has been tastefully renovated to deliver both luxury and style. Embracing incredible views, Koro's interior is warm and welcoming and features rich, contemporary-chic furnishings and earthy, natural tones. Modern amenities such as satellite television, air conditioning, Wi-Fi and under-floor heating offer luxurious creature comforts, making it a perfectly comfortable getaway at any time of year.

Neighbourhood

Four hours north of Cape Town and tucked away in the Western Cape's Cederberg Mountains, Koro Lodge lies in the private and exclusive Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, an area renowned for its spectacular natural beauty. Over 500 million years old, the Cederberg Mountains are characterised by their unusual and striking sandstone formations and dazzling night skies. Home to ancient Bushman rock art sites, black eagles and Cape leopards, the region is also known for its unique fynbos vegetation, which is at its most colourful in spring.

Suitability

Secluded Koro Lodge is suitable for families and groups of friends who want to enjoy a luxurious, flexible holiday in complete exclusivity and privacy but with the creature comforts of home. Children of all ages are welcome.

Best time to visit

Summers in the Cederberg run from November to April and bring long, hot days with warm rosy evenings and crisp, early dawns. You might experience one or two spectacular afternoon thunderstorms but the region is generally dry and hot over this time with temperatures at their highest in January and February.

Winter begins in May and sees quite a lot of rain and chilly temperatures that are perfect for cosy fireside evenings with friends and family. It is a beautiful time of year: the Cederberg's loftier mountain peaks gather a dusting of snow, icy rivers tumble down from high plateaus and the crystal-clear skies are perfect for stargazing. Note, however, that it can be very cold in June and July.

Kitchen

The spacious and fully-equipped kitchen allows you and your private chef to create delicious cuisine throughout your stay, whether family favourites or special-occasion suppers. For extra convenience, children’s meals and dietary requirements are catered for.

Living & Dining Area     

Koro's large living area is elegantly furnished in contemporary-chic décor with views onto the verandah, pool and garden. Plush sofas in front of the cosy, snuggle-up fireplace make the best places to unwind on cold winter nights with a book from the villa's library, while the large dining table can be set indoors or out on the verandah for alfresco dining under the stars.
