We are very excited with the arrival of a new sable breeding bull. The Sable bull has settled down very well with a group of sable heifers that were relocated from the existing breeding herd; and should contribute to the genetic diversity of the Sable breeding project on Mount Camdeboo

Thank-you Peet and Hanna van Heerden, we look forward to your next visit – with friends! “It’s been almost a week since our stay at the beautiful Mount Camdeboo and we just want to sincerely thank you for sponsoring the SPCA draw, and the wonderful hospitality we experienced from everyone at Mount Camdeboo. The farm and the lodge are beautiful and everyone was very friendly and welcoming, Ettienne especially went out of his way to make our stay and the game drives a very special adventure. We were really treated like royalty and so were all of the other guests staying there.
Mount Camdeboo enjoyed hosting our second group of 50 Dutch Day Trippers to Mount Camdeboo recently. These groups, who are visiting the region on a country-wide tour of South African enjoy a great morning game drive before returning to a delicious brunch served outdoors under umbrellas in the gardens We look forward to more visits!
Thanks to Johnny who posted this great review on www.tripadvisor.com after his stay at Mount Camdeboo:

Magnificent thunderstorms across the Great Karoo are characteristic of summer afternoons and December didn't disappoint! In addition to keeping dams full and rivers flowing, it's also welcome relief to the animals, the land, (and guests) at the end of a scorching day!
Richard and Daron, together with the staff at Mount Camdeboo wish our friends, past guests and associates of Mount Camdeboo a blessed Christmas; a special time with loved ones and much happiness.
Wishing you inspired and intrepid travels in 2012, and may all roads lead to Mount Camdeboo – we look forward to welcoming you!
We recently enjoyed the privilege welcoming the Old Persons Group from Nieu-Bethesda to Mount Camdeboo. This group of elderly people from a disadvantaged back round, some of which have never travelled out of their home village thoroughly enjoyed the outing, as did our staff who took pleasure in hearing about ‘life back then’ – a far cry from the lives we live today!
Exceptional seasonal rains mean Mount Camdeboo’s gardens are spectacular. The emerald green lawns – reminiscent of farm homesteads of old, air scented with a combination of Karoo bush & heritage roses, stunning views of the Karoo landscape against the majestic Sneeuberg Range of mountains are just one of the unexpected delights guests experience at Mount Camdeboo.
Mount Camdeboo’s Sable breeding project continues to show increasing signs of success. Following on last year’s outstanding calving season with 90% females, the cows started calving in mid-September with 4 female and 1 male calf dropping to date. Gestation is 230 – 240 days; calves are about 15kg. Interestingly, sable cows conceal their young for a period of 2 – 4 weeks and the weaning age is 240 days (about 8 months). The calves have already formed a nursery group which is good to see.
It's been years since we experienced such magnificent wild spring flowers on Mount Camdeboo. The plains are awash with swathes of pink, white and yellow - we wish you could all be here to experience it!
