Winter in the Great Karoo: Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve

What better way to spend a winter escape than huddled up in the Great Karoo?

Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve resides cupped in palm of the majestic Sneeuberg Mountain range, offering accommodation from historic and beautifully restored Cape Dutch houses to luxurious safari tents, all which provide for the perfect winter setting.

The Reserve has recently become home to the famed Big 5 with the recent introduction of lion and elephant. Come rain or shine, two game drives per day are at your discretion (averaging about 3 hours each) at optimal wildlife viewing times, namely: pre-dawn and sunset. Given that the Camdeboo Manors are nestled in a valley, the game drives typically start with a breathtaking climb up the mountain slopes and onto the plateau above where the animals graze and the world unfolds at your feet. Just grab something warm to wear and you’re set!

Winter in the karoo wouldn’t be complete without Mount Camdeboo’s flavour-rich, traditional cooking by the talented culinary team. These wholesome meals are seasoned with herbs grown on the Reserve while the balance of delicious ingredients are brought in fresh from neighbouring farms.

If you’re looking for a winter getaway in the bush, traditional karoo cooking and uninterrupted family time, Mount Camdeboo is second to none.
