Kagga Kamma is situated in the south-eastern region of the Cederberg, in Swartruggens district. This region was home to the Bushmen for centuries. The red-brown weathered sandstone formations seen here are typical to the Cederberg. Plants are described as drier mountain Fynbos and you can see for miles and miles because the area is largely treeless. A variety of shrubs dominate the area, including Southern Cone Marigold, Klaaslouwbos, Koringbos, Renosterbos, Sneeubos, Wolwedoring, Taaibos and Skilpadbessie. Some Protea species, typical to the Cape, can be found in higher parts.
Kagga Kamma is home to many different wild animals. The Burchell's Zebra and Antelope species including Eland, Gemsbuck, White-Tailed Gnu, Blue Wildebeest, Bontebok, Springbok, Grey Rhebok, Duiker, Klipspringer and Steenbuck are most common.
Kagga Kamma is also home to many bird species. On the open plains large birds like Ostrich, Secretary bird and Kori Bustard can be seen. Closer to the Lodge we find the Cape Robin, Cape Bulbul, Cape Sparrow and House Sparrow. During winter and spring, Egyptian Geese, Red Billed Teal, Black Duck and South African Shelduck are seen near open water. Among the most typical sounds of the veld at Kagga Kamma are those produced by the noisy Black Bustard and the Namaqua Sand Grouse, with its typical call of 'kelkiewyn', an apt reminder that the time for a sundowner approaches.
