We spent one night at the permanent tent camp. There are only 4 tents so it is good to book ahead as they were all occupied the night we stayed there. The tents are nice and the beds are comfortable. There is a refrigerator and kettle and two cups. No bathroom or water in the tent, but there is a... More

This is a lovely park just outside Graaf Reinet with a large dam providing a watery relief after the dry Karoo. The camping sites are well spaced with a shrub screen between each; although they are gravel the ground was soft and level so perfectly fine if you have ground sheets. The camp kitchen is excellent with freezer, electric plates,... More

I have stayed in well over a hundred accommodations in Africa, possibly nearly two hundred. I love the unspoilt wilderness experiences such sleeping on the floor of a cave in the Drakensberg or camping rough under a baobab in Tanzania. At the other end of the scale I also enjoy luxury safari experiences and five-star game lodges. The Lake View... More

The Campsite does not have any grass (only gravel) so make sure you have steel pegs and a four pond hammer. The trees provide very little shade and in the summer it's very hot, so if you have a "silver sheet" be sure to bring it along - it does help. Beware of the monkeys as they will steel any... More

This park is a rustic adventure and if you are keen on getting back to nature, you will have a good time. There is not a lot of shade for campers, but you have water and electricity nearby and a camping kitchen with stove, microwave, deep freeze and scullery. The ablutions was good, but needs a little more attention. The... More

We had only a few hours to spend in the Park. The Gate closes at 8 on summer evenings and we went up to Valley of Desolation where we were able to see the astonishing sunset coupled with the rise of the full moon in all its magnificence! We were all silenced into awesome wonder at this display of Nature's... More

What a great site. It was very enjoyable and loads to see. Unfortunately only had a day and a half to spend but will definitely stay in the tented accommodation again. There was a lot of rain before we arrived so some of the roads was impassable. Definitely recommend a visit. It's close enough to Graaff-Reinet to commute in and... More

We booked to stay one night in the Camdeboo National Park "camping site", assuming that like other camp sites, there would be an area of grass on which to pitch our tent. Unfortunately, upon arrival we discovered that the Park only has a gravel base on which to pitch tents. Since our tent only had plastic pegs, we were forced... More

We stayed in a safaritent in the Restcamp for four nights. Our tent (nr. 4) had a view at the lake and now and then we saw game passing by. The semi-outdoor communal ablutions were charming and perfect. The Valley of Desolation is a must, but the game drive near the camp is also worth it. Add to that the... More
