Thought to be about 160 years old, the Winterhoek house and adjacent wagon shed in the Camdeboo National Park are currently being restored to their original condition by the Rupert Historic Homes Foundation. While a number of proposals were put forward as an appropriate use for this site, it has been agreed to restore Winterhoek with a view to managing it in association with the SA College for Tourism, as an up-market visitor lodge. This option fulfills both the cultural heritage and tourism mandates of South African National Parks (SANParks).
The number of people who visited the four South African National Parks in the Frontier Region (Addo Elephant, Camdeboo, Karoo and Mountain Zebra National Parks) during its free entry week more than doubled this year, compared to the same period last year.

The Valley of Desolation, tourist roads, picnic sites, walking, hiking and 4x4 trails of Camdeboo National Park are waiting to welcome you during South African National Parks Week.
