As luminous clouds of dust swirl through the ancient landscape, a tortoise patiently wanders in search of succulent morsels; a lizard basks in the sun while gemsbok and red hartebeest share the arid plains with mongoose, orb-web spiders, skinks and leggy toktokkies.
Situated 18km away from the Park Reception at Roodewerf, in the hills known as Elandsberg lies the isolated and hence romantic Elandsberg Cottages. The development of the Elandsberg Wilderness Camp was initiated in September 2006 and completed by April 2008. The rustic design of the cottage gives the visitor a true bushveld experience topped with a striking evening sunset over the Roogeveld escarpment. Each cottage boasts beautiful views of the Karoo plains and imposing Roggeveld Escarpment. The cottages are spaced far enough from each other maintaining privacy, yet close enough for groups to book different cottages together. Read more...
