Discover the Diverse Wildlife of Mount Camdeboo
Nestled at the foot of the Sneeuberg Mountain Range in the heart of the Karoo region, Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve offers a truly captivating escape. This landscape unfolds with sweeping panoramas, rolling escarpments, and a rich cultural heritage that dates back to the early Bushmen inhabitants and Dutch settlers. The reserve is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, housing a diverse array of species, including white rhino, cape buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, mountain zebra, various antelope, and a plethora of bird species.
For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, the on-site spa is the perfect retreat, complemented by a regularly updated menu of locally inspired, refined cuisine that nourishes the body and soul. Accommodation at Mount Camdeboo is a luxurious affair, with three beautifully restored, gracious gabled manors, each surrounded by spacious gardens and inviting swimming pools. One of these manors features an additional secluded cottage, adding an extra layer of exclusivity. For those who wish to embrace the natural surroundings, two sumptuous en-suite safari tents offer a private and immersive experience with breathtaking views across the reserve.
This traditional Cape Dutch-style manor boasts four luxuriously appointed rooms, perfectly suited for families traveling with children. The 510 m² house showcases beautiful Oregon pine flooring and French doors that lead to exquisite landscaped gardens.
Our highly knowledgeable and experienced game rangers are dedicated to ensuring that you have the opportunity to encounter our “Camdeboo Big Five,” which includes the breeding cheetah pair, rare white rhinos, giraffes, and the nearly extinct mountain zebra. Furthermore, the reserve is teeming with a variety of bird species and smaller, lesser-spotted game.
To enhance your safari experience, we provide a brief respite during each game drive, allowing guests to enjoy a picnic basket filled with hot coffee, tea, rusks, and other delightful snacks. During the colder winter months, we also offer hot water bottles, blankets, and a touch of liqueur to keep you warm and comfortable.
The Karoo boasts a rich culinary heritage. Freshly baked bread, filled with mouthwatering flavors, not only nurtured love but also held secret remedies for body and soul.
At Mount Camdeboo, our skilled chefs draw inspiration from recipes dating back to the early Cape settlers, infusing them with a contemporary twist. These hearty dishes are seasoned with herbs cultivated in the Reserve’s ancient soil, complemented by fresh ingredients sourced from nearby farms. Just like the abundant summer sunshine, there’s always an abundance of food.
Our dining experiences are as diverse as our menu. You might one night find yourself dining under the twinkling Karoo stars, complete with a full-course meal and a dedicated chef cooking right before your eyes. On another occasion, you could be enjoying a meal in a secluded courtyard or by a roaring dining room fire. It’s these delightful surprises that enhance the splendor and variety of what Mount Camdeboo has to offer.
