MOUNT CAMDEBOO PRIVATE GAME RESERVE

 

Resting at the foot of the majestic Sneeuberg Mountain Range in South Africa’s dynamic Karoo region, Mount Camdeboo offers a private, malaria-free safari experience in a pristine 14 000-hectare setting.

The reserve is home to white rhino, Cape buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, mountain zebra, a host of antelope and an abundance of birds. The on-site spa and constantly evolving menu of wholesome, locally inspired, refined cuisine does wonders for body and soul.

Accommodation is in three beautifully restored, gracious gabled manors, each with spacious gardens and swimming pools. For those looking for something under canvas, two luxurious safari tents provide sweeping views over the reserve.

Activities on the reserve range from game drives and guided bush walks to cheetah tracking, scenic helicopter flights and star gazing. Informative talks take place at actual historical sites on the property. The airstrip in Graaff-Reinet services daily scheduled flights to and from Plettenberg Bay as well as charters from any major city in the country.
