  • Camping and hiking
  • Guided 4×4 and 4×2 routes as well as driver training

  • Customised team building events and conference facilities
  • Flower and succulent tours
  • Bird watching
  • Stargazing
  • Or, simply relaxing in an unhurried retreat far away from cell phones and city stress…

The Deal Family

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…

Stop Fracking

Shale gas mining is a process that applies the technique of high-volume, horizontal, slick-water fracturing (‘fracking’ or ‘hydraulic fracturing’). It involves pumping water, sand and chemicals into horizontally drilled wells, under hydraulic pressure to fracture the underground shale layers and release gas.
