Sleeps 12 in bunk beds self catering. R170 per person with no bedding or towels provided. Minimum of 4 people.
The perfect base for hikers leaving or returning from the Leopard Trail, the Hikers House has three bedrooms with two bunk beds in each room. A big lounge opening onto a covered veranda provides a great communal holiday space, ensuring you feel comfortable and at home. The house has an old traditional Aga fireplace in the lounge for winter. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a shower.
The rate is R170 per person per night with your own sleeping bags or bedding. Alternatively, we can supply bedding and towels at R250 per person per night.
Close to the house is a braai/barbeque area – a stunning setting for star-filled nights around the fire. You can find relief on hot days in the large cement reservoir swimming pool that is available to all guests at Cedar Falls, fed continuously by clear, fresh water from the mountain stream.
Please note that due to us being in a World Heritage Site, we are unable to accommodate pets.
Check in is anytime from 2pm onwards, and check out by 10am. Guests are welcome to arrive earlier and leave later if you want to do walks, however please ensure you are out of your accommodation so that our team can start cleaning for the next guests. Please note this is un-serviced accommodation.

A group of hikers last year commented that some places you just can’t capture with photos and videos. So for the next few weeks we challenged hikers to try their best to capture SA’s best day hike and share their footage. Here is a mix of the results. You decide.
What kind of hiker is grateful for a flash flood? These guys were at camp two when the thunderstorm hit, and we had to send a drone overhead to make sure they were all ok. The next day they were ecstatic and very grateful to have the chance to experience a force of nature like this (and that our camp sites have been well placed with floods in mind). #realhikers
Great footage of the flash floods in Feb 2019 on the Leopard Trail in the Baviaanskloof
Along with some really great photo’s, Hiking South Africa had some very cool things to say about the Leopard Trail. We are committed to making this one of the top multi day slack packing hikes in SA, and it feels great when others are say we are getting it right.
