we have had a lovely time in the Karoo, with Dane our driver spotting animals not seen for a while! The reception felt like a warm bath and the food was delicious and excellent. We could not have wished for more!

Mount Camdeboo is a delightful private game reserve. My wife and I stayed for four nights in August 2016 and loved it. The location is remote and the drive in is an exciting adventure in itself as you spot game, birds and flora. The main hotel building is delightful, the rooms spacious and well designed, a great mixture of modern... More

The three night stay here was way beyond expectations. From the friendly reservation service to the final goodbye everything was faultless. The Manor House is a dream, the staff are quietly efficient and go out of their way to ensure your every comfort. Food was great and each night we ate in a different "space". The whole reserve is well... More
