Camping in the Cederberg at Gecko Creek

Gecko creek camping

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.

Hoka

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.

Returning Guests

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!
