The Travelling Tortoise



De Rust, Western Cape, SA 


Self-catering guest Cottages


The Travelling Tortoise Retreat is an off-the-grid eco-retreat situated only 10 km from the pretty town of De Rust in the Western Cape. The resort is set in natural Klein Karoo veld with stunning views from the decks of our mountain chalets. There is a variety of wooden chalets and camping sites with quality ablution facilities. 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. 


5 wooden chalet sleeping between 2-5 persons per unit
