Our mission at Gecko Rock is to offer our visitors an unparalleled outdoor experience in the South African Karoo - one of the most unique natural areas on earth.
The scope of activities on offer at this special place, where the emphasis is on preservation of the environment, is sure to hold an attraction for everyone.

The list of options includes:

  • Camping and hiking
  • Guided 4x4 and 4x2 routes as well as driver training
  • Rock climbing and Abseiling
  • Mountain Biking
  • Customised team building events and conference facilities
  • Flower and succulent tours
  • Bird watching
  • Star gazing
  • Photography
  • Or, simply relaxing in an unhurried retreat far away from cell phones and city stress...


Gecko Rock was acquired by the Deal family in 2002, and has been developed in accordance with regulations specified by the Department of Environmental Affairs. It has become 'home' to us, and our wish is that you will feel the same way…

Visitors to Gecko Rock have the choice of two campsites, a wooden cottage and wooden cabins.

Rheboksvlakte Cottage

Fully equipped for self catering, Rheboksvlakte offers a very private stay. Situated in a panoramic valley the cottage promises a front row seat to the best sunrise in the Karoo. Of wooden construction, the insulated finish ensures cool days and warm nights.
Designed for two adults, the cottage will accommodate two small children on mattresses inside or just outside the door in a tent, where they can enjoy their own adventure.

Tranquility, Solitude and Panorama wooden cabins

Our larger cabins are situated alongside De Wets Rus Campsite and comfortably sleep 6 persons. Modern kitchen area with full size fridge/freezer, 2 plate gas cooker, solar lighting and a plug to charge electronic devices make this your home away from home. A full size stoep with outside table and chairs makes the best of breathtaking views. The braai area is a step down off the deck. All linen (excluding towels) is supplied. Ablutions are a short walk down a neat path where you have a piping hot shower, basin, mirror and toilet. Parking for your vehicle right next to the cabin.
