After staying at Haaspoort Bush Camp only one word springs to mind FANTASTIC. We booked a 4 night stay with a 3 day hunting trip last October and were flabbergasted The chalets were immaculate providing in all the comforts one needs when in the bush. The food , home cooked with specialties from the Karoo was exquisite, we know as we are professional chefs ourselves, thanks to the lady of the house Lindsay and her staff. As for things to do, you can go for nature walks, a dip in the pool, Victor and Lindsay will provide anything you need. A morning- , sundowner- , night drive on the reserve or a guided trip to the nearby “Addo elephant national park” are also an option. As we booked a “Karoo plains game” hunting trip, we can easily say , Haaspoort provides ample opportunities for trophy hunters, but if like us you go hunt for meat, there is an abundance of different species of cull animals. The whole hunting trip is guided by Victor who is a very skilled professional hunter, with a lot of consideration for the environment and the wellbeing of the herds of animals on the reserve. Short, it was a memorable stay and we will definitely be going back to Haaspoort Thank you, Lindsay, Victor and all of you staff

This place is perfect if you're looking for quiet stay in the veldt. The rooms are gorgeous and luxurious. The setting of every room is private - especially the honeymoon suite. There is one communal kitchen. Every chalet has a corner of the kitchen, with own stove, cupboards and cutlery, fridge. The kitchen is not of the same standard as the chalets. Haasport is excellent for just sitting around, relaxing. It is even better if you want to go for short hikes. It will be best enjoyed with a 4x4 vehicle. You cannot drink the water. Filtered water is available, but unfortunately not enough. If you drink a lot of water or coffee/tea, bring extra water. There is a gorgeous lapa and swimming pool, used by everyone. There is no tame serval. The perfect tranquil spot if you just want to soak in the Karoo and admire the stars.

Thank you Victor and Lindsay for giving our family the opportunity to stay at your little (Not so little) piece of paradise. My daughter Bronwyn recommended that we all go there for new year as she had spend the previous Christmas there, So glad we did. From the minute we arrived the staff were there to greet us and unpack all our luggage and take to our respective rooms. They were so hospitable yet quite discreet. The accommodation is quite luxurious and spacious and I love the lapa / kitchen / bar area. All well spread out. We also enjoyed the welcoming pool and the men loved the 4 X 4 routes and cycled their little hearts out. (On their own bikes). I know you have bikes there as well. Will definately come again and refer to all our friends.

Just returned from an amazing 2 night stay at Haaspoort. Wish we could've stayed longer., and next time we will. We booked all 4 cottages at Haaspoort for my dad's 60th birthday celebration. It was such a treat. We arrived at about lunch time on our first day. The staff were really sweet and welcoming. We were really impressed by the quality of the accommodation. The rooms are really spacious and well equipped, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The communal lounging lapa with braai was perfect for our party of 8, with a really well equipped kitchen. We spent 2 days exploring the beautiful surrounds on foot and mountain bike. We saw plenty of different wildlife species including zebra, wildebeest and various antelope species, as well as many other smaller game and interesting plant species. Inbetween, we relaxed at the pool, and enjoyed our evenings braaing and chatting around the bonfire. We didn't even have to do our own dishes, because the friendly staff would come in a couple times a day to clean up. I also loved that there was no cell phone reception, allowing one to feel that you are escaping completely from reality. (although there is a land line if needed for emergencies). Needless to say, my dad had the best birthday ever, such a nice way to spend quality time together with family and friends.

My wife and I spent 2nights at Haaspoort over the new year period. What a pleasure, no TV and no cell phone cover.The Lodges are beautifully appointed and although the temperatures were in the late 30's, the high thatch roof made for lovely a cool interior(ceiling fan in roof as well).We opted for self catering and had 2 exellent braais under an amazing karoo / African sky.We saw lots of kudu and other buck as well as an abundance of bird life, with a couple of black eagle sitings. The staff were wonderfully helpfull and inconspicuous.would suggest that to enjoy this wonderfull lodge, as we did, that you need a 4x4 with good ground clearance(4x4 trails are great) .
