Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve lies just to the east of Graaff-Reinet in the heart of the malaria free Eastern Cape's Great Karoo (South Africa).

Luxurious beyond expectation. Come and experience a personalized safari in a region that is steeped in history and culture.

An ideal wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, family holiday or team-building destination, Mount Camdeboo invites you to share its people’s love for this sometimes harsh, yet always breathtakingly beautiful, land of contrasts.

When an artist appreciates his work, he calls it a masterpiece. In the eyes of an artist, I would call Mt. Camdeboo, a masterpiece. Elegance personified.

Classic Retreats presents a brilliant work of art to the world.

The history of Mt. Cambedoo is a tasty meal for the romantics. Read the story below and find out why:


The story of Mount Camdeboo is a story of love. In 1996 the late Logie Buchanan and his wife Cathy, purchased a parcel of land as a country retreat for the family. While overlooking the property on Valentine’s Day, Logie presented the Deed of Sale to Cathy and their son Iain.

Over time, the Buchanan family’s love for the land and its people increased - and before long, a dream developed to create at its heart a center of excellence in land conservation and the uplifting of the local people.

Cathy, Iain, their wider family, and the superb staff at Mount Camdeboo have seen the vision come true. We think Logie would have more than approved.

A very soothing story.
