I can't fault Mount Camdeboo - the accommodation/service/food/staff were all incredible. No Big 5 on the game drives, but we still saw lots! The views of the surrounding valleys and vistas made the drives even more exciting; we had sundowners on a mountain and breakfast above the clouds. I would stay here again in a flash. Thank you!

Camedeboo is an amazing game reserve offering first class service and game drives with the most amazing views. You won't find the big 5 here but you will find a very friendly oasis in the middle of the Eastern Cape. Make sure you add this to a Garden Route itinerary and if travelling as a couple, make sure you ask...

Dear issywiggy, Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback and for your lovely comments. You are right in that one of the things that makes this area so special is our beautiful views and beautiful setting - the Karoo has many surprises! We hope to welcome you back soon.

We stayed at Mt. Camdeboo for 2 nights and went on 4 game drives. There are places with more plentiful game, but surely nowhere with quite such spectacular scenery. The views from the top of the mountains are wonderful. Our guide Chris was excellent, and we were lucky enough to see a cheetah hunting (though not successfully!). We had a...

Stayed just for 1 night with my brother & cousin visiting from the UK. The location, views, accommodation & service was excellent.... Lauren at the main lodge, and Dave our ranger deserve a special mention for taking care of us so well. Foodwise - although the "high tea" was great, the dinner was a bit of a disappointment - especially...

Everything about Mount Camdeboo was perfect. The rooms are beautiful, the food exceptional, the service was spot on and the guiding (Chris) was some of the best we have had. As for the scenery - out of this world. The children (age 2+4) were so well looked after and absolutely loved every second, it was perfection. We long to return.

We rarely do reviews, but this place was worth writing about. This was not the only game reserve we stayed at in the Great Karoo area, we also stayed at (probably) more well-known places. However, this place did indeed stand out as far more amazing than the rest. The staff did everything to make our stay great and Chris, our...

Perfect place to relax, unwind and be spoilt. Beatiful rooms with all that is needed. Fantastic Manor House, excellent food. Everybody working there is polite, friendly and helpful. Game outings were very good, even changing a tire in the rain! The nature is out of this world.
