“Natural experience”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Ko-Ka Tsara Bushcamp is a very great experience, regarding fantastic hospitality, cleanliness as well as great service. Would have loved to stay longer, but due to time restrain, it wasn't possible. It felt like home in your own bush. Great walking track.

We've stayed overnight twice on our way from Jhb to Hermanus and we LOVE it!! Not only are the chalets comfortable and clean, with every need catered for, but this place is an absolute doggy heaven. We travel with 4 large dogs and they love the overnight stay as much as we do:) They're allowed off-lead anywhere on the property and Sam (the resident Labrador) is always first to greet us when we arrive. The hike along the canyon is absolute bliss and Sam usually acts as tour guide for our 4 city hounds, running wild in the bush. Gail, the manager at Ko-Ka Tsara, is a real gem and makes you feel right at home from the moment you set foot in reception. The breakfast the next morning is just what's needed before tackling the final stretch to Hermanus. We love this place and would never consider staying anywhere else!

We stayed there with our dog and 8 week old baby, our dog loved playing with Sam as well as all the open space. Chalet catered for all our needs. We ordered winter meals which tasted great and was generous portions.

We stayed here for 3 nights, Gail was a perfect hostess and we fell in love with the cat which promptly settled into our bed! My critism: this place is in dire need for some maintenance, it feels rundown and neglected. Only 4x4 routes, which is a bit silly as we didnt see any animals as we didnt have a 4x4 and couldnt do any sight seeing. But we loved the shy meerkat and loving cat and labrador with a lovely demeanor. The houses are cozy and we loved the thatched roofs. But I wouldnt go back in a hurry.

Kobus H, Owner at Ko-Ka Tsara Bush Camp, responded to this review, 21 September 2013
Thank you for your kind comments about Gail and the loved domestic animals at our Bush Camp. We wish to stress that any place open to the harsh Karoo winters will show the effect of a dormant nature which, for the untrained eye may appear as run down and in neglect. Ko Ka Tsara is nestled in a unique part of the Karoo in a valley surrounded by mountains. The chalets, facilities and camp are attended to daily, 7 days a week. Although the access route to the chalets suits every make of sedan motor car, the farm game viewing routes require a high wheel based vehicle. For those without a high wheel based vehicle wishing to experience the Karoo, game and environment, a daily guided tour is available on request. Spring is now in the air and everything is once again beginning to respond to the growing season.

Came here with my family after a good holiday at the Kruger. Needless to day this was the best way to end our holiday. The people are friendly. The little houses are cozy. And then there's this little dog and meerkat that kept following us around. Was the cutest thing ever!!

The vibe there is amazing and the food... Best I ever had!

I would definitely recommend this place. Just remeber to bring a big bottle of water with due to the water scarcity. =)

Spend 3 wonderful days with my family here during school holidays-imagine our surprise after spending 4 days in Karoo National park,just over the fence,to find this wonderful place.From arriving at the bush-camp to the day that we left we made to fell most welcome,the staff at reception and the cleaning staff were all most friendly and helpful-this to a National park just over the road where the attitude was one of "just another job"I can highly recommend this bush camp and it's employees.Bring your bicycles and walking stick and come enjoy the bush.
Thanx guys for a lovely holiday.

Stayed two nights, and had a wonderful time. The "huts" were spacious and clean. The staff was greatly helpful especially Abrahms, who also took us on a safari ride. We got to see a lot giraffes, wilder beast, and springbok. I recommend taking the bikes or the golf cart around the trails, we didn't see any animals as we went midday, but there is a beautiful pool that is crystal clear with huge square rocks. We sat around the fire at night, played with Sam, the dog, and just watched the stars while listening to monkeys off in the distance.
