Discover the Diverse Wildlife of Mount Camdeboo
Nestled at the base of the awe-inspiring Sneeuberg Mountain Range in South Africa’s scenic Karoo region, Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve is a pristine haven. Here, you’ll discover sweeping vistas, rich biodiversity, and a tapestry of cultural history, from early Bushmen inhabitants to Dutch settlers.
The reserve offers a sanctuary for diverse wildlife, from white rhino to cheetah and a symphony of birdlife that fills the skies. For relaxation, the on-site spa provides a tranquil retreat, complemented by a dynamic menu of locally inspired cuisine. Mount Camdeboo invites you to embrace nature’s serenity and immerse yourself in the Karoo’s untamed beauty.
Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve offers a range of accommodation options to cater to your desires. Choose from three elegantly restored, gracious gabled manor houses, each surrounded by spacious gardens and featuring inviting swimming pools. Additionally, there’s a secluded cottage that offers extra privacy for those seeking an intimate retreat.
For a unique experience closer to nature, the reserve provides two luxurious safari tents, each boasting a private and secluded location. These en-suite safari tents offer panoramic views of the reserve, allowing you to witness the untouched beauty of the Karoo landscape from the comfort of your canvas sanctuary.
No matter which accommodation you choose, you can expect comfort, sophistication, and a deep connection with the breathtaking surroundings of Mount Camdeboo. It’s a place where you can unwind, savor the moment, and create lasting memories in the heart of the South African wilderness.
Set in a secluded garden area, Peppertree Cottage is a romantic option for honeymooners or couples seeking privacy. This historic 179 m² property, which served as both a prison and a church before being converted into a suite, includes alluring amenities like a fireplace, a private hot tub and its own garden.
Our highly knowledgeable and experienced game rangers will try their best to make sure you see our “Camdeboo Big Five”, namely the breeding cheetah pair, the rare white rhinos, giraffe and almost extinct mountain zebra. Not to mention a bevy of birds and smaller lesser-spotted game.
Not forgetting human creature comforts, each drive takes a break mid safari, where guests can tuck in to a picnic basket filled with hot coffee, tea, rusks and other delicious snack delights. In the colder winter months guests are dispatched with hot water bottles, blankets and a dash of liqueur to warm their way.
The Karoo’s rich culinary heritage has inspired our talented chefs at Mount Camdeboo. Drawing from age-old recipes of early Cape settlers, they’ve created a contemporary twist on traditional dishes. These wholesome meals are infused with herbs grown on the Reserve and fresh ingredients sourced from nearby farms. Our dining venues vary, from under the starlit Karoo sky to secluded courtyards and cozy dining rooms with roaring fires. It’s a delightful way to experience the diversity of Mount Camdeboo.
