Winter in The Camdeboo Karoo is unlike anything you are likely to experience anywhere in South Africa. It stands to reason that we believe what we encounter during this magical period of the year is not merely unparalleled, but unrivalled to boot. Imagine if you could the uncompromising Karoo plains – stark and unrelenting; the sloping hills littered with specs of the whitest flakes of frost and finally the peaks capped by a lingering mantel of magnificence.
Dating back to the early 1800s, Cambedoo Manor is a fine example of Cape Dutch architecture. Wide Oregon pine floorboards gleam from generations of wear, while thick walls keep the untamed Karoo elements firmly at bay. A generous dining room with oversized fireplace plays host to nights filled with camaraderie and cheer.
