We stayed in the Manor House at Mount Camdeboo where every need and request is taken care of with efficiency and smiles all round. We took advantage of their three night/pay for two offer - and what an offer this was. We were three couples in this beautiful 'home' - it really did feel like being in one's own home,... 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

Incredible, thoughtful service, attention to detail, friendliness, delicious food, very personal experience... This is our third trip to Mount Camdeboo and we'll come again for sure! We loved seeing the Cheetah up so close on foot (including cubs!)

Our week-end was absolutely amazing. It feels like you are away from everything and can totally rest. Everyone is friendly and the service is excellent. This is definitely a place one can go back to soon.

We stayed for two nights in May at Mount Camdeboo Private Reserve, and we. were the only people in the lodge during those nights. We arrived a little late but were taken on a game drive anyway by our personal guide, Jeandre. We saw a giraffe family, an ostrich, and a variety of antelopes and had our "sundowners" by moonlight.... More

Had a great 3 nights with our baby and toddler. Really amazing hospitality and world class service. Food was excellent and nothing was too much to ask. Loved the Rhino sightings and the kids found the drives very peaceful.
