MOUNT CAMDEBOO PRIVATE GAME RESERVE & DROSTDY HOTEL
8th-12th May 2022
Traveltime has been extremely fortunate to visit Mt Camdeboo in 2013 / 14 / 15 & 18 and are now planning our 5th tour in 2022. We just know you will all love this private reserve in the Karoo and enthuse about your tour on your return to Cape Town!
Our tour in 2022 will take on a different ‘format’ – instead of the long-road trip we will fly into Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) and do an ‘easier’ 263km to Graaff Reinet.
DAY 1: Sunday 8th May
We have booked overnight accommodation at the elegant 5* Drostdy Hotel enjoy your first afternoon on tour exploring fascinating Graaff Reinet – be ready in the late afternoon view the sunset at the Valley of Desolation – an evening you will not easily forget.
DAYS 2-4: Monday 9th—Wednesday 11th May
After a lavish breakfast at the Drostdy, we travel the 60km to the Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve. Owner managed and with a passion for conservation, Mount Camdeboo is home to numerous endangered species that have been successfully rehabilitated and reintroduced into South Africa’s malaria-free Great Karoo. Experience personalised safaris in a region that is steeped in history and culture.
Now, a Big Five Reserve, they offer the discerning guest an authentic safari experience in arguably one of the most spectacular landscapes of Southern Africa. They have an on-site spa to pamper you and the chefs will ensure that their wholesome, locally inspired, refined cuisine, will do wonders for body and soul. We will spend three nights here.
The 2 Manor Houses—Camdeboo & Courtyard ; all rooms are exquisitely decorated & very comfortable The day-by-day itinerary will be explained to us on arrival but you will experience 2 game drives each day—one at about 06h30 followed by breakfast. Another game drive follows High Tea at 16h00. The greatest excitement at Mount Camdeboo is the sublime scenery and of course, if we’re lucky an up close-and-personal view of their cheetahs! This will send chills down your spine! And of course the sunset from the escarpment is another highlight you will remember for years to come!
DAY 5: Thursday 12th May
We check out after breakfast and travel the 265km to Gqeberha (PE) airport for our afternoon return flight to Cape Town.
Pre arranged shuttles will return you to your homes.
