It is not a park for game watching per se but lacks nothing on natural beauty! There are breathtaking views, abundance of flora and exciting roads (4x4 is best) through the park. Living in South Africa, for the first time I met up with skittich...More

Camdeboo is usually visited to see the valley of desolation which is a small but stunning geological feature. There is a short walk around this area. It is possible to walk along the valley bottom but this is difficult to access. Many tourists just go...More
