Mount Camdeboo Game Reserve

A scenic 4 hour drive into the mountains of the inland East Cape. Accommodation here was at a 200 year old Dutch manor. Beautiful buildings and fantastic grounds and gardens. The staff here were super friendly and made a huge effort to ensure the quality of our stay.
We were taken up to a site where a decisive battle of the Boer War occurred. Lots of other historical sites in this area. It is impossible to describe the spectacular mountain scenery here. Steep, snow-capped mountains with plateaus only accessible via rocky tracks.
Wildlife here included cheetah, black wildebeest (gnu), mountain zebra, buffalo and oryx.
Some of us did the helicopter option to see a different view of these mountains … a mind-blowing experience. We met the rest of the crew on a plateau for lunch. This was a great way to end our African adventure.
