Activities at Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve

A Great Karoo safari at Mount Camdeboo Game Reserve is a 5-star affair with professional guidance and wonderful creature comforts to enjoy along the way.

Guests here set off twice daily on a Great Karoo safari and can also enjoy guided bush walks, Cheetah tracking, stargazing and tours to local attractions. Conferences, weddings and special events can all be held in this rugged yet beautiful reserve.

Mount Camdeboo guests are treated to 2 game drives per day (about 3 hours each) at optimal wildlife viewing times in the early morning and at sunset. The vehicles used on the reserve are purpose-built, 9-seater game viewing Land Rovers. They are SABS safety approved and equipped with seatbelts, a shade canopy and drink holders.

The homesteads are nestled in a valley, and so the game drives typically start with a breathtaking climb up the mountain slopes onto the plateau above, where the animals graze and the world unfolds below. On a Great Karoo safari, guests set off pre-dawn to view game and enjoy delicious home baked muffins, luxury snacks and warm refreshments en-route.

In the colder winter morning months guests are also dispatched with hot water bottles, blankets and a dash of liqueur to warm their way. On return to the manors, guests eat a wonderful brunch and then later enjoy high tea followed by a romantic sundowner game drive with nibbles and drinks.

On this tranquil reserve, guests can see Cheetah, White Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Giraffe, Mountain Zebra, wild cats, Sable, a host of antelope birds of prey and a unique collection of fauna and flora.
