Hi all,

We have launched the online accommodation facility for Camdeboo National Park today.

Bookings are available from the 1st March for Nqweba Camp Site and the 1st April for Lakeview Safari Tent

Please let me know if you have any queries or issues with these two accommodation types on the site.

Hello,

has anybody stayed at one of the Lakeview Tents and would report about it??
I haven't found anything here or on the web.
Is the area fenced?
Do the tents have electricity supply?
What about the views?

Thanks & Regards
Baer

Hi Baer,
The tents do have an electricity supply. There is a fridge at the tent and this plug point does have extra points for plugging something in.
There is also a braai unit and outside light as well as table and chairs.
The tents are tucked away within the acacia thicket so don't have a view of the dam but the floodplains of the dam are nearby.
The area is not yet fenced but should be done within the next three or four months.

Thanks, Megan! :clap:
Why will the camp be fenced? I haven't seen any dangerous animals on the mammal list. :doh:

How good is the chance to see an aardvark?? We'd love to sight one ...

Hi
May be because the park has a main road running through it without gates, it therefore, without fencing accomodation would be very at risk from crime. :(

There are buffalo in the Game Viewing Area, so this is just a precaution against any potential danger.

I have a reservation for the furnished tents in October. Has anyone visited ? Which tent should I request? I would prefer to be further away from camp activities, especially the communal Braai area. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi Jen,

We haven't stayed there and I do hope someone with better info comes along......... :thumbs_up:

Here's a map of the camp outlay. To me tent one seems to be the furthest away from the communal braai area.

Does anyone know if it is possible to leave early in the morning from Lakeview entrance at Camdeboo. When I say early I mean like 3am as we want to stay overnight on the way to Kruger.

Also are you able to arrive later? :D

Unfortunately the Lakeview gate gets locked at 22:00 every evening and only opens at 06:00 the next morning.
