TRAVELTIME - Future Outings

11th to 16th May 2014 


Sunday 11th May: Our journey to Graaff Reinet, home of Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve, covers a distance of 711 kM and because of this we will be breaking our trip in Prince Albert (408kM). Our home for tonight will be at Karoo View Cottages, described by the owners as “In the middle of
nowhere, close to everywhere”.

Monday 12th: We continue via Beaufort West and Aberdeen and will arrive in Graaff Reinet (309 Km)around lunch time. 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. Luxurious beyond expectation. Experience a personalised safari in a region that is steeped in history and culture.
Guests are accommodated in Cape Dutch houses that lie cupped in the palm of the Sneeuberg Mountain range. Once homes to generations of settlers, these magnificent homesteads have been sensitively converted into havens of five star luxury. 
Accommodation has been reserved in Camdeboo Manor and Courtyard Manor. Mount Camdeboo provides wholesome traditional meals, a team of friendly and professional hosts and superior hospitality in a relaxed homely environment. 
14 000 hectares of ancient land is home to 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. Our booking includes all meals, local beverages & house wines and 2 daily game drives. We will spend three nights here.

Tuesday 13th & Wednesday 14th:  We will be making full use of the facilities and game drives at Mount Camdeboo, namely: Game Drives / Guided bush walks / Cheetah tracking (during a game drive, at the sole discretion of the ranger) / Star gazing. (The Great Karoo has some of the clearest skies in the southern hemisphere, which offer up glittering treasures of the sky). / Mount Camdeboo Small Cat Project / Project Walk – an easy 2hr morning walk along the valley to take in the various Mount Camdeboo Breeding Projects. / Historic Anglo Boer War site where the pivotal "Battle of Paardefontein" was fought. It is here that the famous Boer Commander Johannes Lötter was finally captured. (The story is related on one of the game drives; further reading material is available in the curio shop).

Time permitting we will also take in some local attractions, such as: Historic tour of Graaff Reinet / Pre-historic fossil trails and bone collections / Africa's largest selection of cacti / The breathtaking Valley of Desolation.

Thursday 15th:
Today we take our leave of this beautiful area and return to Cape Town via Mossel Bay (381kM), where we will overnight.


Friday 16th:  The final leg of our journey (394kM) will take us along the N2 to Cape Town where we should arrive by mid afternoon
