This foursome from Cape Town stopped to pitch their tents underneath the shade of the gum trees at Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge www.geckocreek.com while enroute to Namibia. We offer shaded campsites only steps away from 5 star ablutions. Guests can cool off in our swimming pool with stunning views of the Cederberg Mountains. Incuded in the R110 per person/per night camping fee, guests also enjoy access to our communal cooking facilities (gas stoves, large fridges, pots and pans, cutlery and dishes), in our lapa and braii facilities in our boma.
Yesterday was a huge day for Hoka. We rushed him to his vet in Cape Town for intensive tests, ultrasounds and x-rays. Suspicion was something was wrong with his kidneys. After two hours of anesthetic and examination, he was found to have spinal arthritis and some old scar tissue. Happily, we can say Hoka had a clean bill of health beyond that and he received his annual shots for rabies, etc. He returned to Gecko Creek a bit bruised and battered but should be fine by tomorrow morning.
Now available at Gecko Creek . . . full laundry service offered by Shumirai!

We enjoyed a cup of Nagle (traditional coffee brewed in Israel) with our friends Talya and Ranny this morning. They stayed at Gecko Creek in November for a few days while enroute to Namibia and now again 3 months later after travelling throughout southern Africa. Safe journey on your return home tomorrow to Isreal. We know you’ll be back!

Spent an enjoyable evening with our Jenman group of guests (from Germany and Canada) and had some delicious Bobotie (a traditional Cape Malay dish) expertly prepared by Todd the guide.
This is the time of year when our trees at Gecko Creek Wilderness Lodge in the Cederberg begin to shed their bark and lose some leaves.
