Holiday at The Cavern (and a brief stop-over in Clarens)

The Cavern and Clarens holiday break

We spent a week at The Cavern berg resort, and pulled a sneaky stopover in Clarens on the way back to my parents in Welkom (travelling via the beautiful Golden Gate Highlands National Park).

It was a well-deserved rest, and we had a most glorious break. The Cavern is even better when you have children. We had to pay 60% of full adult fee for Jethro, which seems a little cheeky since he was only 6 months old, but they provide well-trained and certified caretakers/nannies to look after the children during meal times. In fact, children under 7 years old are not allowed in the main dining room.
It just isn’t understood how brilliant that is until one has children of their own. When we got to Clarens and stayed over a night a self-catering guest house there, where no-one looks after your children during meals, I understood that I’d been taking it all for granted. I won’t be doing that again in a hurry. The 60% rate that The Cavern charged was well worth it.

  1. Most cunning 🙂

    I remember The Cavern well from my youth, it was a regular holiday spot for us too when I was younger. My memories are indeed of it being a very enjoyable family place, though it has been many years since I’ve been back there. Berg in general is fantastic to visit, our recent trip to Golden Gate and Clarens reinforced my positive opinions of it.
