Privately owned and with a passion for conservation, Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve is home to numerous endangered species that have been successfully rehabilitated and reintroduced into South Africa’s malaria-free Great Karoo. Experience a personalised safari in a region that is steeped in history and culture.
Accommodation forms three historic and beautifully restored Cape Dutch houses and two luxurious PODS located on the Camdeboo Plains.
Camdeboo Manor has four luxuriously appointed double bedroom suites which offer guests a truly private experience. And should the call of nature tug at their soul – they can simply slip out of their private patio doors onto a secluded courtyard and into the lush established garden that stands like an oasis in the desert heat. The fourth suite, referred to as the honeymoon suite, is situated in Camdeboo Manor’s beautiful gardens, in what was originally the Gate House to the Manor.
Situated in a secluded part on the Camdeboo Plains you will find two eco-friendly PODs that blend in seamlessly with the natural landscape, providing every comfort while leaving a light environmental footprint. The PODS are unfenced offering guest a unique opportunity to be fully immersed in nature. The PODS include a luxurious Queen bed that looks out onto the Camdeboo Plains, en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and hot tub – the perfect escape for couples, honeymooners and wildlife lovers.
The pods are available for booking as an add-on experience when booking your stay at Mount Camdeboo.
Resting slightly higher on the Sneeuberg Mountain slopes than its counterparts, Hillside Manor offers magnificent sweeping valley views. Slightly more “modern” than the other manors on the Reserve, this mountain retreat dates back to the early 1900s. Tastefully renovated, Hillside Manor is used to accommodate overflow from Camdeboo Manor when required. It is an ideal family option for group bookings with modern living spaces and three double en suite bedrooms. Given that the Hillside Manor property is unwalled, it is not uncommon to entertain surprise guests courtesy of Mother Nature.
Dating back to the late 1700s, Courtyard Manor is a gracious, double gabled homestead wrapped in a deep veranda. Comprising four tastefully appointed en-suite bedroom suites, the manor honours its original name of Ou Werf (a bustling village square) as it is well suited to accommodating a private party where sociability and smiles feel right at home.
Situated in a secluded part of Camdeboo Manor’s beautiful gardens, Peppertree offers a romantic setting for honeymooners or couples seeking privacy. The spacious cottage features a King-size bed, fireplace, luxurious en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and a private garden.
