Nestled at the foot of the Sneeuberg Mountain Range in South Africa, Mount Camdeboo is home to an impressive spectrum of wildlife such as white rhino, cape buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, mountain zebra, a host of antelope. If remote R&R is what you need, then the on-site spa and the constantly evolving menu of wholesome, locally inspired, refined cuisine, will do wonders for body and soul. Accommodation is in three beautifully restored, gracious gabled manors each with spacious gardens and swimming pools, and one with an additional secluded cottage. For those looking for something under canvas, two luxurious and privately located en-suite safari tents provide sweeping views over the reserve. This is a place of sweeping panoramas and undulating escarpments, extraordinary plant, animal diversity and a deeply rooted cultural heritage.

We had such an amazing stay at Mount Camdeboo last week! From the moment we arrived, we felt like special guests - we were greeted with a personal welcome at the gate, escorted to the main lodge by Hein, our guide, offered delicious homemade lemonade (such a treat after a long, dusty drive), and shown to our beautifully luxurious rooms. The highlights of our stay included: - Dinner and breakfast every day were served in a gracious dining room with a roaring log fire, and high tea on the lawn outside or on the deep verandah overlooking the Karoo hills. The food was absolutely delicious, carefully prepared and presented. - Warm, friendly staff, making us always feel welcome and cared for. - Excellent game drives, morning and evening, with our knowledgable and charming guide Hein, for whom nothing was too much trouble. We all learned so much from him and had exceptional game sightings. It was freezing cold, and Hein made sure that there were blankets and hot water bottles in the game drive for the early mornings! These little touches went such a long way to making us feel so looked after. At the end of every drive, we were met at the lodge by the lovely Bridget with steaming hot hand towels to warm chilly hands and refresh us before the next delicious meal. - very comfortable rooms, with all the touches to make our stay extra comfortable, and the nightly turn down service with home made chocolates and fudge were a lovely touch - the exceptional views of the surrounding landscape made every game drive even more memorable. - the stunning chocolate cake for our son to celebrate his 19th birthday! All the staff from Barney, the GM, the guides, the kitchen staff and cleaning team, made us feel like part of the Mt. Camdeboo family. Thank you all, we can't wait to return.

Liked · Our two night stay at Mount Camdeboo was the ultimate treat for our little family. The accommodation is comfortably gorgeous, the views magnificent and the service superb from every single member of staff we encountered. Our game drives were wonderful, fantastic viewing and our guide, Tim's knowledge was great. We would highly recommend Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve to any one travelling to the Graaff-Reinet area. Spend a little more time in the region and head to the other side to take in the Valley of Desolation and the history of the town.

At some point during our stay, I commented that if I were to design a game lodge, I would simply copy Camdeboo lock, stock and barrel. Lovely old house, large comfortable sofas, scatter rugs, bookshelves, huge fireplace; outside are large tree lined lawns , discretely placed tables and chairs for relaxing - it has everything right. We only spent one night here as part of a road trip, but agreed that we would definitely come back for a longer stay. The reserve itself has everything, and our ranger Tim was knowledgeable and passionate. Meals were excellent and the staff were uniformly friendly and efficient. Mount Camdeboo is adjacent to the Samara Private Game Reserve, which is distinctly more expensive. Not having stayed at Samara, I would nevertheless battle to find reasons to choose it over Mount Camdeboo considering the truly excellent stay we had at the latter. We puzzled over why there is a fence between the two reserves. The benefits of common traversing rights have seen most fences come down between the private reserves adjoining the Kruger National Park, and on the face of it it would seem to make sense here, Naturally there may be other issues which create obstacles, but it would seem to be a goal worth fighting for.

Picture perfect and a fitting end to our week in this idyllic area. Staff are attentive, but not overbearing and the animal sightings excellent and game drives were a real treat with the Karoo sunsets. The views from the rooms were some of the best we have ever experienced.

Thank you New Mark Hotels for the unforgettable two-night spoil! Staying at Mount Camdeboo was truly an unparalleled experience! Each staff member as well as the owner Iain passionately embrace the needs of all guests. Rooms are classy and functional and the Manor House has such a cosy feel. The food was outstandingly presented and delicious -again compliments to the chef and her team. The game drives with Timothy was spectacular and extremely informative. Wishing we could have stayed longer as we had a fantastic time and still a lot to see and experience. Looking forward to returning soon!
