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

We have just spent an incredible few days at Mount Camdeboo. It is a haven of hospitality and comfort in the Karoo. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff as they ensured that we left with precious memories both from the game viewing and the manor house. The highlight was the surprise bush dinner after a late afternoon game... More

We spent four phenomenal days at Mt Camdeboo with our 3 kids (14,12 & 6) and two other families (close friends) If ever there was an oasis in the middle of the Karoo - this is it!! From a gourmet breakfast (different every morning) that eased us a mid-morning leisure time around the pool, playing Boulle on their expansive lawns,... More

We stayed here for four days on our honeymoon in November and had a wonderful, very special time. Such a friendly, warm, interesting and beautiful place. Food was very tasty (and plentiful!) and the accommodation was cosy and comfortable. We were looked after impeccably and made to feel completely at home.

What a find, this is an outstanding lodge and well worth a visit! The Lodge is luxurious, yet comfortable, and the hosts and staff are, friendly, welcoming and really great. The terrain and views are absolutely breathtaking. We will definitely be back!
