Simbavati Cederberg Ridge is a luxurious wilderness lodge offering delicious food, warm hospitality and adventure. It overlooks the panorama of the Cederberg Mountains with its raw, rugged beauty. Enjoy a stylish ‘away-from-it-all’ experience, whilst still being located within easy reach of Cape Town and the Winelands. 

This lodge makes it easy for all to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and the unique culture of the Cederberg. Experience the ancient San Rock Art and the Settler’s history, along with the one-of-a-kind fauna and flora all around you! 

Cederberg Ridge has the authentic ambience of a modern African Farmhouse with much use of wood and natural textures. The warm and inviting interiors, with vaulted ceilings and wooden beams, give a light and airy feel. Large French windows open to a generous covered terrace and dining deck overlooking the garden and mountains beyond. 

With a restaurant with stunning views of the stunning Cederberg Wilderness Reserve, a large swimming pool and indigenous gardens flowing into the ‘veld’, this luxurious retreat offers space and style in the midst of wilderness.

Extra touches are a large walk-through shower, as well as built-in day beds on a generous terrace of roughly 30sqm in size. Here you can enjoy alfresco sleep-outs.
    The Superior (Honeymoon) Suite – is roughly 67 sqm in size, and has a separate sitting room and generous terrace. it is ideal for those seeking privacy and space. It can also be combined with an adjacent Luxury suite to make a two-bedroom villa-unit for families or friends. The rooms share a covered foyer, while being entirely separate otherwise. 
  • Superior Pool Suites – The two Superior Pool Suites are located at opposite ends of the property, offering superb mountain views. They enjoy the same décor and facilities as the Superior suites. Extra touches include a wood-fired plunge pool, which can be heated in the winter months. And queen-sized day-beds, perfect for sun-bathing or sleeping alfresco under the stars. One of the suites has a small sitting area with a sleeper couch, making it perfect for small families.
