Quatermains Camp
Quatermains Camp accommodation
 
This classic 1920's-style expedition camp is modeled on the heyday of exploration, that golden era when adventure lay around every corner. The intimate 6 bed camp offers you the opportunity to experience "Africa under canvas", with three crisp white 1900's style safari tents fitted out with military campaign style furnishings; the choice of pioneers, hunters and explorers of that time. Relax in the central thatch boma area where local delicacies are prepared in front of you on an open fire, and dinner is served under a blanket of stars. Every effort has been made to stay true to the expedition style, with concessions only being allowed for rustic en suite bathrooms with modern conveniences.
 
The comfortable colonial style tents will ensure you enjoy a genuine bush experience. As you unwind on your own private deck, you may be lucky enough to see an elusive bushbuck or hear the cry of the African fish eagle. At night as you lie under canvas one of the highlights of your stay is sure to be drifting off to sleep to the sounds of nature; you can frequently expect to hear jackals calling, the beautiful voice of the fiery-necked nightjar, maybe a screeching barn owl, or if you are fortunate, the roar of lions.
Quatermains Camp strive to do their very best to make sure that you are enveloped by the natural world and that you will return home refreshed and with a new sense of wonder and understanding of the wildlife around us.
 
Children 12 years and older are welcome.

Carnarvon Dale pool
 
Carnarvon Dale once provided lodgings for travelers whose journeys had been halted by the flooded Bushman’s River. In that same tradition of hospitality, Roger and Maryan Hart welcome guests to their 1820 Settler farmhouse, the Bottom House, and the 1907 Edwardian Top House.
 
Carnarvon Dale is 3 star graded but offers wildlife enthusiasts 5-star game drives in a malaria free area on our award-winning Amakhala Game Reserve and also, for guests staying 2 nights or more, the opportunity for a guided bush walk.
 
Offering comfortable, owner-managed accommodation and excellent game viewing at an affordable price which, we believe, provides good value for money.
Carnarvon Dale consists of the 1820 Settler farmhouse, the Bottom House, where breakfasts and dinners are served, and which offers a free wi-fi service. There are only two comfortable en-suite serviced bedrooms in the 1907 Edwardian cottage, the Top House. Lunches are served here for your convenience. The private lounge leads on to a cool, covered verandah overlooking the swimming pool.
 
Accommodation is ideal for two couples traveling together or for a family group. The menus offer good home cooking South African style – solid breakfasts, light lunches and three course dinners – and cater for vegetarians and diabetics. The owners enjoy talking to guests and, as ex-history teachers, they love talking about the history of our diverse country, our history-rich area and our Settler community.
 
Children 9 years and older are welcome.
