Our stay at Quatermains Safari camp was nothing short of fabulous. Hosts Julie and Riaan have worked hard at creating an authentic bush experience that allows guests to be relaxed and spoiled while being immersed in the African Bushveld.The camp is small,only accommodating 6 guests in 3 comfortable well appointed safari tents.Delicious, simple South African meals are shared in the communal boma and drinks and conversations flow freely around the camp fire under amazing night skies. We were treated to really great game drives with rangers who were extremely attentive and passionate about the environment.A real highlight was our game walk with Riaan.His vast knowledge of the bush was really impressive.We were absolutely mesmerized by all the information he shared with us.Booking a walk with him is an absolute must. Thanks to all the staff at Quatermains for a wonderful stay.We will definitely be back. Jean van Elden

We spent three days in this camp and it was probably our best experience during our ZA trip. We did all game drives and had really amazing views (lions mating, elephants walking near to us, cheetah, giraffes feeding a newborn and a lot more). We had a wonderful time thanks to our excellent guides, who have very, very good knowledge of the bush and wildlife. But the best is the proximity to the bush: You are really in the middle of the nature, hearing the sounds of the animals and enjoying everything. One cannot have this in other lodges: Staying in a tent (although with all the comfort of your own toilet, warm water, shower and a good bed) brings you as near as possible to a real "being in the bush" experience. The overall decoration (safari like in 1920 :-) ) of the camp is amazingly beautiful: One really is reminded of a safari type like 100 years ago. The dinners were hold in the Boma together with the guides: We enjoyed very interesting and funny stories, a warm fire and good beer and wine. All the staff was very nice and they surprised us with a nice present for our wedding anniversary. One of the highlights are the walking safaris: This is only possible with highly experiencend and qualified guides and we enjoyed every minute of it. Food and beverages are good and more than enough. The price for this overall experience is really fair. We absolutely recommend this place and plan to be back to stay one night in a cave (they offer this also!) and see the recently born cheetah cubs! Thanks to the whole team for our great stay, Monica and Björn

From the very first meeting at the car park with Mo, to the game drive with Craig who’s knowledge and statistics about animals and the bush was out of this world. The camp was spotless, the game drive was breathtaking. We saw a lioness stalking a hartebees, lots of Ellie’s and rhino. The snacks and drinks provided on the game drive was so refreshing and filled a nice whole for the wait until dinner. As we got back in the dark, Mo was waiting for us with a delicious warm drink of hot chocolate with a shot of amarula. The dinner was absolutely superb, being a foodie I can be quite critical but the potjie was epic. We then sat around the fire with Craig for a good few hours talking about life, he then gave us a detailed explanation on the stars which were stunning. We then made our way to bed which was very warm and cozy because of the hot water bottles that were prepared in advance. The bed was extremely comfy and breakfast the next morning was even better! A really amazing experience, so much so that we will be back for the cave walk and will be telling our friends all about it! Thank you so much to Mo, Craig, Ruan who made our stay so amazing, last but not least, thank you to the ladies who made the mouth-watering food!

As a South African it's not my first time in the bush or on safari - what we experienced here was a first though - the depth of knowledge, my first ever walking safari - we did 3 in three days - learning about the entire ecosystem not just viewing the game. The customisation, the singing for my birthday in two languages and a cake baked on the fire for me. Wonderful clean accommodation in the tents with attention to details, like an extra blanket for the extra cold night without asking. Wonderful staff at every level. Late August was cold, however it was warm in the tents. For a non-camper, I was impressed. Just book this!
