Matroosberg Reserve, is a Private Nature Reserve 35km outside of Ceres, well known for it's snow during winter and beautiful summer days and crystal pools during summer. Matroosberg Peak is also the highest mountain in the Boland region and because the owners of Matroosberg value Family Life and Adventure, we refer to Matroosberg as Peak of Life or Peak of Adventure. We offer a wide range of activities, have one of the top 10 4x4 trails in SA. But even though we are a big establishment, you will still receive personal attention from the family who owns it, for they really go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible.This is one of the only self catering establishments, where you can have the services of a butler...how cool is that... Matroosberg offers Hotel service, for guests with an self-catering budget!

We stayed in one of the BZN units for a weekend and had a really great time. The rooms are quite small and basic, but really quite inexpensive. So, if you expect some luxury, good quality bedding, etc you will be disappointed. This place is...More

Beautiful rock pools that were private- even at this time of year. Reasonable priced. Close to Cape Town. A big lake. A massive fireplace - equipped kitchen. The bathroom - shower room and toilet were very small - so best to go with a couple...More

Accommodation in the YCMB huts is relatively cheap - but then everything in these huts is cheap! Plastic table shaped like a canoe, plastic chairs, no paint on the walls, cheap pots and pans, cheap cutlery, cheap glasses! And if you cram eight people into...More
