Quatermain's Camp: a classic safari experience with safari walk optionsQuatermains offers authentic bush accommodation

The intimate tented camp offers you the opportunity to experience “Africa under canvas”, with crisp white 1900’s style safari tents fitted out with military campaign style furnishings; the choice of pioneers, hunters and explorers of that time.

Relax in the centralised boma area where local delicacies are prepared in front of you on an open fire, and dinner is served under a blanket of stars.

Every effort has been made to stay true to the expedition style, with concessions only being allowed for rustic bathrooms with modern conveniences.

*As a general rule we advise guests to have lunch before they arrive, as check in time is between 1-2pm.

*The afternoon safari drive aims to depart at approximately 3pm, to arrive back at camp at around 7pm. Beverages and snacks are provided on this game drive for guests to enjoy a “sun downer” on the reserve.

A real tented safari camp experience*A traditional South African dinner will be served on arrival back at camp. As with all meals, they can cater for specific diets with prior notice.

*A limited bar is available for your enjoyment.

*Morning safari drives will depart at approximately 6.45am (subject to the time of sunrise) with a hot drink and rusks at 6.30am before leaving.

*Afternoons are free for you to enjoy as you wish until the afternoon game drive departs. A lunch will be served at approximately 2pm.

*With the Quatermains 2 night safari special you get a free safari walk in addition to the safari drive activities. It is one additional safari walk per 2 night stay.


*Due to the climate of the Eastern Province, they can experience extremes of both hot and cold in every season. We therefore recommend you bring a variety of clothing (i.e. shorts and t-shirts as well as warm jackets and long pants).

*Although the classic safari Quatermain’s Camp is a 1920’s style expedition camp bush accommodation, they have made allowances for hot and cold running showers and flushing toilets.

*Towels are provided.

*Please be aware that as they are deep in the bush they do not have mains electricity and so we recommend that you charge camera batteries etc before arriving.


They are halfway between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown on the N2 highway in the Eastern Province. Please turn in at Amakhala Carnarvondale where you may leave your car and will be collected for your transfer to the camp.
