We have visited Karukareb more than 5 years ago, yet, we cant take this place out of our minds. The two night we spent in the tent was such an amazing experience that want to do it again and again, reason behind this is, the lack of any WIFI and internet forced us to talk to each other instead to...

Two nights in this lovely location in the Cedarberg was very relaxing. We were in the lodge/ farmhouse....spacious and comfortable but we wouldn't like to have shared it with other families. The best location is where the tents and mini-lodges are housed. Charles and Tanya were wonderful hosts,-great food, very helpful with local information and we did enjoy the wilderness...

We spent two nights here during our trip to SA in mid November and we loved it! We were greeted by the friendly and very helpful owners, who drove us down to our luxury tent, which was stunning. The bathroom inside the tents are gorgeous, complete with roll top bath! And the bed was quite possibly the comfiest we’ve ever...

Luckily all building work had stopped over Xmas while we were there! The location is incredible and very remote. The food was fine but nothing special. The best part we're all the animals wondering around. Ostriches, horses, baby peacocks and a baby meerkat amongst others. We did a hike/ rock climb that was lots of fun and horse riding which...

We stayed in the lodge area for our 3nights are Karukareb and unfortunately they were in the process of digging a waterhole (among other things) in front of the lodge so all day all we could here was trucks and people talking loudly. The lodge rooms itself need a massive revamp, it is dusty, dull and old and be prepared...

When we arrived we stumbled onto a building site with tractors and workman. The cook was the only staffmember we met and he showed us to the room. He also informed us that the Lodge had been taken over a few month ago and is undergoing major changes. They are building a luxury resort with 3-hole-golf course, Spa, etc. and...

Karukareb is situated in a secluded valley outside of Clanwilliam in the Cape. We spent a very enjoyable week end here. The well appointed luxury tents were excellent and quite romantic in an Out of Africa way. There are a few good hikes and 2 stunningly unspoiled swimming spots in the pristine stream running through the property. We self catered...

The scenery is amazing and the tents very comfortable although it does not say anywhere on the website that they are 1km from the main lodge which is fine during the day but not so good to walk back at night. Bring a powerful torch as the one provided is useless. Our main complaint was the food. We have being...

We were so glad we found this retreat. Driving up to it, some 20 kms outside Clan William, The view of the mountains got better and better until we knew this was exactly the area we were looking for. We were shown the small guest house and then the luxury tents further away. The tents are the way to go....

We spent 2 nights at Karukareb whilst touring in SA. The setting is wonderful in a tranquil valley with the Cederburg touring around you. But, the tents were a little smaller than we had hoped for a 4 star establishment - there was nothing wrong with the style of them, they were just a little smaller than we had expected....
