This classic 1920's style expedition camp is modeled on the heyday of exploration, that golden era when adventure lay around every corner. Our intimate 6 bed camp offers you the opportunity to experience 'Africa under canvas', with three 1900's style safari tents fitted out with military campaign style furnishings; the choice of pioneers, hunters and explorers of that time.

To experience the real nature of the African bush and enjoy some of the many wildlife encounters this area has to offer we run twice daily game drives. Your hosts Riaan and Julie Brand are both experienced rangers and will do their utmost to ensure that you have a safari that you will never forget. As we operate in 'Big 5' areas you have a chance of seeing elephant, white and black rhino, leopard, buffalo and lion as well as a variety of other game including hyena, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, many species of antelope and much more. As well as the larger, more obvious creatures your hosts will delight in showing you the smaller but no less important members of this ecosystem as well as the birds and plants.
Even during inclement weather the game drives are not to be missed and your drive is made quite comfortable by the provision of waterproofs and blankets.
A mid drive stop to have a welcome coffee on the morning drive or a cool sundowner in the afternoon all adds to the experience of a lifetime.
Guided bush walks can be conducted upon request. This can be a wonderful way to really learn about the environment of the camp; from watching birds, to looking at plants, to discovering the geology of the area and if you are lucky you may well see some of the larger wildlife that lives in the vicinity, such as many species of antelope.
The area surrounding the camp contains superb and diverse birdlife encompassing fynbos, thicket, and grassland biomes. We also have the Bushman's River which ensures we see a wealth of water birds.
Your host Riaan Brand is a specialist bird guide and can introduce you to the many beautiful species that surround us at Quatermain's Camp. You'll never look at birds in the same way again.
