My Wife spoiled me by taking me here for my Birthday. Two nights of absolute peaceful relaxation. I had the best time keeping the three important fires going. One for the warmth inside the rustic, but well equipped Cabin. One fire for the braai and to warm in the balcony area and a third fire to keep the jacuzzi warm....

We stayed at KolKol in the Bugsy cabin for two nights. Of course I booked this last year August as this establishment strangely enough is fully booked for months in advance. I am a little perplexed about that, but I must admit it was a lovely breakaway. My favourite was the fireplace (ample free wood provided which was amazing) which...

After a previous, glorious visit to Kolkol, in which we stayed in Bugsy, our expectations were high and we decided to book in for my 40th birthday on the weekend of February 6. Although we were told Bugsy was not available, we were told the other cottage, which was on the end, was just as.nice. it was the same price...

Dear Michelle, As the owner of KolKol Mountain Lodge, I strongly believe that Tripadvisor is a wonderful platform for guests to make their opinion known and for business owners to keep their standards high in order for us to always strive and exceed our guests’ expectations. However, some reviews are misleading and false, as is this one… I felt the...

This is the ultimate hide-away, home away from home! When I entered our cabin, Bugsy, I was in awe! It is well equipped, it is as if they were in my head! Everything that I would have liked to have with me for the weekend, well, it was there! Love the stylish touch. The view, the stoep, the braai, the...

What a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Sitting in the warm hot tub looking at the moon and the stars or gazing across a beautiful valley. What could be better? The cabin was clean well appointed and laid out. I can highly recommend Kol Kol. We stayed in Pincushion which was great.

I enjoyed Kolkol very much - it was a welcome change of scene from the coastal areas of Cape Town but still not too far to travel from there. Kol kol main cabin is relaxing spacious and has a wonderful view. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom was lovely with all the different textures...

We stayed in the Bugsy cabin. Beautiful and comfortable cabin with so much attention to detail. Very well equipped and we appreciated the eggs, butter, milk and rusks. Stunning view, quiet and peaceful. Very private, ideal for couples. The hot tub is awesome! Really exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this lodge to nature lovers seeking a quiet break....

After hearing so much about KolKol we were lucky to get a cancellation booking this past weekend. We stayed in the Kings Cabin which was simply amazing. The cabin has ample space for a group of 10 persons, a lovely large deck and garden perfect for if you take the kids with. We spent our weekend braaing, relaxing in the...
