Nestled at the foot of the Sneeuberg Mountain Range in South Africa, Mount Camdeboo is home to an impressive spectrum of wildlife such as white rhino, cape buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, mountain zebra, a host of antelope. If remote R&R is what you need, then the on-site spa and the constantly evolving menu of wholesome, locally inspired, refined cuisine, will do wonders for body and soul. Accommodation is in three beautifully restored, gracious gabled manors each with spacious gardens and swimming pools, and one with an additional secluded cottage. For those looking for something under canvas, two luxurious and privately located en-suite safari tents provide sweeping views over the reserve. This is a place of sweeping panoramas and undulating escarpments, extraordinary plant, animal diversity and a deeply rooted cultural heritage.

The Pepper Tree cottage was quaint, cozy but yet comfortable and stylish. The cottage offers privacy and a sense of serenity. Underfloor heating was amazing in the cool weather and the fire place a life saver when we experienced the Karoo rain storm with a short power outage.

What an amazing place. We were only able to spend a night here on our drive through the Eastern Cape, but it felt like way more than a night. The staff are wonderful and friendly and welcomed us to a beautiful room in the Manor House. We enjoyed a great high tea and then went

Camdeboo is essentially set up in two areas next to each other divided by a main road. The Valley of Desolation is stunning at any time of day but is enhanced at sunset. The game area is easily drivable with good quality tracks and plenty of diverse game to see. Even if

We realize you've incorrectly tagged us, I think you were meant to tag Camdeboo National Park. Mount Camdeboo is a Private Game Reserve. We do, however, agree with you that the area certainly is a special part of South Africa! Kind regards, The Mount Camdeboo Team

I believe the 'access' section of their website explains the different options on how to get there. They do not have the big five, but there are giraffe and cheetah, plus much oryx, zebra, antelope, ... Great tracking tours ! We definitely found it very enjoyable ...
