Description

The Travelling Tortoise Retreat is an off-the-grid eco-retreat, situated just 6 km from the pretty town of De Rust, in the Western Cape. The resort is set in natural Klein Karoo veld with beautiful views from the decks of the mountain chalets.

Accommodation is offered in a variety of wooden chalets. The elevated chalets have been built largely from renewable materials with farmed pine trees being the main material. Although rustic, comfort hasn’t been compromised. The chalets are self-catering, and solar power provides electricity and hot water. There is a gas oven with hob for cooking, and of course, a braai on the deck.

The Jackals Den is built partially underground and is equipped for self-catering with braai facilities on the verandah. Guests would need a 4x4 to reach The Jackals Den, however, transport can be arranged with the owner.

The Padloper cabin is smaller than the others, but it is large in character. Set high on the hill, the chalet is almost hidden by bush and surrounded by the most beautiful views and also requires a 4x4 to reach.

The pastoral, green Middelplaas Valley is in front, the Red Stone Hills are to the right and the majestic Swartberg mountains are in the background. This is the ideal spot for guests to relax and wind down slowly.
