Privately-owned, and with a passion for conservation, Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve is home to numerous endangered species that have been successfully rehabilitated and reintroduced into South Africa’s malaria-free Great Karoo. Experience a personalized safari in a region steeped in history and culture.
Accommodation forms either three historic and beautifully restored Cape Dutch houses, or two luxurious safari tents cupped in the palm of the majestic Sneeuberg Mountain range. Daily flights from Plettenberg Bay (with Plett Air Safaris) to Graaff-Reinet makes access quick and easy.
Camdeboo Manor has four luxuriously appointed double bedroom suites which offer guests a truly private experience. And should the call of nature tug at their soul – they can simply slip out of their private patio doors onto a secluded courtyard and into the lush established garden that stands like an oasis in the desert heat. The fourth suite, referred to as the honeymoon suite, is situated in Camdeboo Manor’s beautiful gardens, in what was originally the Gate House to the Manor.
Resting slightly higher on the Sneeuberg Mountain slopes than its counterparts, Hillside Manor offers magnificent sweeping valley views. Slightly more “modern” than the other manors on the Reserve, this mountain retreat dates back to the early 1900s. Tastefully renovated, Hillside Manor is used to accommodate overflow from Camdeboo Manor when required. It is an ideal family option for group bookings with modern living spaces and three double en suite bedrooms. Given that the Hillside Manor property is un-walled, it is not uncommon to entertain surprise guests courtesy of Mother Nature.
Dating back to the late 1700s, Courtyard Manor is a gracious, double gabled homestead wrapped in a deep veranda. Comprising four tastefully appointed en-suite bedroom suites, the manor honors its original name of Ou Werf (a bustling village square) as it is well suited to accommodating a private party where sociability and smiles feel right at home.
Situated in a secluded part of Camdeboo Manor’s beautiful gardens, Peppertree offers a romantic setting for honeymooners or couples seeking privacy. The spacious cottage features a King-size bed, fireplace, luxurious en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and a private garden.
Two privately located canvas tents raised on wooden decks, situated overlooking a seasonal stream. Accessible by a wooden walkway, each tent comfortably sleeps two in a Queen-size bed, with en-suite bathroom featuring a shower and WC. The spacious deck with outdoor furniture offers sweeping views over the Milk River Valley and picturesque Sneeuberg Mountain Range, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the bush setting. The tents can accommodate a maximum of 2 people. Children 12 years and older welcome, max 2 guests per tent.
