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

Fantastic place to stay in South Africa. It is like walking back in time in the movie out of Africa. Huge beautiful lodge in the middle of no where (28 K of gravel road through three security gates). 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

Mount Camdeboo has all the luxurious elements you'd expect from a private game reserve-fabulous accommodation, top service, incredible food & privacy. The attention to detail is remarkable. Nothing is too much trouble for them. You feel that you are their most favourite customer whom they've just been waiting for. The thing that makes this game reserve different though is the... More

I was almost loath to write this review. Not because Mount Camdeboo didn't live up to our expectations, but because it did, and then some. And now I'm not sure if I want the word to get out completely! We spent 5 wonderful days here just before Christmas. The vistas are glorious. The sunsets are spectacular. The animal encounters are...

We spent 5 unbelievable days at Mount Camdeboo with friends. It is such an intimate setting with just four bedrooms in the Manor House - you really feel like you are staying with (fabulously wealthy) friends. There is nothing commercial about the experience, which is just so refreshing. Despite the intimate setting, the staff ensure your privacy is respected and... More
