There is nothing to complain about. The service and stay was very nice. For a place like that in the middle of Karoo it was just magnificent. Would recommend to anyone that need a quite and relaxing place.

Well worth the night over. refreshingly basic. Beautiful sky. This highlights what the Karoo is all about, and brings out its unique character. Being fully off-grid and sustainable with so little power shows what we can easily do without. Old school bush camp before all the bells and whistles clouded the essence of what the point is. Well done guys!

Hi Chris Thank you for your review! Glad you enjoyed the Bush Camp, we do try no to modernise the Bush Camp too much as we want the stay to be rustic and traditional. Your review excites us as we are trying to establish an accommodation type in the middle of the Karoo of what we think a Bush Camp should be and at the same time achieving our goals by meeting your expectations. We hope you will stay with us again! Regards Andre & Stephanie

Our family enjoyed a comfortable overnight stay at Assendelft camp. The kids enjoyed a swim in the dam and we loved the setting of the boma as the sun set over the Karoo landscape. Chalets and beds were comfortable and we liked the amenities such as the donkey to heat water. We had a really nice evening at the boma and the hosts were effective and kind. Will definitely recommend Assendelft for an overnight stay

Hi Charl Thank you for your review! We are very happy to hear you had an enjoyable and comfortable stay with us! The Bush Camp is ideal for kids as the camp has a pool and other activities. The added benefit is the star filled skies and cascading sunsets from the boma as you mentioned. We hope you will stay with us again! Regards Andre & Stephanie
