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.
Nestled in the serene corner of the Camdeboo Plains, you’ll find our eco-friendly Pods, seamlessly blending into the landscape. These accommodations offer a perfect mix of elegance and comfort with minimal ecological impact. Positioned for a unique connection with nature, they are an ideal escape for couples, honeymooners, and wildlife enthusiasts.
Our expert game rangers are dedicated to ensuring you encounter the “Camdeboo Big Five” – the breeding cheetah pair, rare white rhinos, giraffe, and nearly extinct mountain zebra. Along the way, you’ll also spot a variety of birds and lesser-known wildlife.
For your comfort, our safari drives include a mid-safari break. Here, you can indulge in a picnic basket filled with hot coffee, tea, rusks, and other delectable snacks. During chilly winter months, we provide guests with hot water bottles, blankets, and a touch of liqueur to keep you warm.
Camdeboo Manor offers much more than a place for children to connect with nature and animals. Our expansive lawns provide ample space for running, playing games, kicking around a soccer ball, and embarking on exploratory journeys through the lush gardens. It’s a perfect setting for quality family relaxation.
During the day, you’ll enjoy exciting safaris to observe animals, delightful moments in the gardens and by the pool, and the opportunity to savor delicious, kid-friendly treats. Evenings come alive with boma fires for roasting marshmallows, fireside stories, and the thrill of stargazing to catch a falling star. All of these experiences pave the way for dreams filled with today’s bug-safari fun and the adventures that await tomorrow. At Mount Camdeboo, we believe every family deserves a memorable family holiday.
