We camped here for two nights, on arrival the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Valley of desolation absolutely perfect for sundowners, stunning view. The campsite is lovely, no grass but there is shade, each campsite has a bench, Braai and bin. Bathrooms clean and kitchen has basics (only a deep freezer, perhaps there should be a fridge as well...

Valley of desolation? Maybe, but also valley of freedom! The Sanparks safari tents were great - I would however add a fan as it was boiling hot on check-in. Graaff-Reinette is a lovely town and we enjoyed it a lot! The trip to the valley and the views were excellent. The lizard walk needs new signs (put it in cement... More

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer...we did not have quite enough time to explore... More

Spent a Friday and Sat during winter at this lovely Nat Park. Valley of Desolation is truly spectacular and the history along with plant descriptions, that are on display very well thought out and informative. Views are incredible especially a clear winters day. The Park section for animal viewing is Ok. Only because we are spoilt during our visits to... More

Unfortunately the hikes available in Camdeboo Nationalpark were either 6 hours or 45 minutes. 6 hours means you cannot avoid the heat of the noon, no matter when you get started. Since we could not take 45 minutes serious and we were quite keen on having a bit of excercise we opted for the Eerstefontein Day Walk. We had read... More
