What an outstanding experience! Fantastic service, stunningly luxurious and comfortable lodgings, immaculate attention to detail. We loved every minute and felt rested like we'd stayed a week, even though it was only 2 nights!

Mount Camdeboo felt like an undiscovered paradise, almost two weeks since our stay and I am still "on a high". How to describe it? I will do it a disservice, but let me try: I found the service of staff to be exceptionally high, they were wonderfully attentive, without being over-bearing. My wife, baby, and I were warmly welcomed by... More

One of the best experiences of my live! The staff are amazing, kind and competent. The lodging grounds are beautifully kept and have great amenities (the pool at sunrise was amazing). For me though the three best things are: one, the food, it is absolutely gorgeous and delicious every meal. Two, the safaris are brilliant with very knowledgeable staff, amazing... More

Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve was definitely the highlight of our stay in South Africa. The lodge is completely isolated in a beautiful preserved landscape. The full board included 2 game drives and 6 meals or drinks a day. Everyone is there to treat you as a VIP, especially the ranger who spends most of the day with you, even... More

The accommodations were outstanding, the staff where very friendly and attentive to your every need. Heated towel rack, four poster canopy bed,... More

Wonderful and warm staff and a beautiful place to stay. Everyone made us feel special on our honeymoon. All meals were excellent and game drives informative, not to mention wonderfully scenic. Such fun and we can't wait to go back.

An almost perfect stopover. Loved the phone call beforehand, giving the personal touch to our anticipated arrival. Loved the drive up -dirt road but good enough for our Toyota Corolla. Loved the welcoming reception committee and the open friendliness of the staff. Beautiful grounds and fabulous old building. Disappointed not to have been given the (unoccupied) honeymoon suite as requested... More
