Grand Total



Our comfortable colonial style tents will ensure you enjoy a genuine bush experience. As you unwind on your own private deck, you may be lucky enough to see an elusive bushbuck or hear the cry of the African fish eagle. At night as you lie under canvas one of the highlights of your stay is sure to be drifting off to sleep to the sounds of nature; you can frequently expect to hear jackals calling, the beautiful voice of the fiery-necked nightjar, maybe a screeching barn owl, or if you are fortunate, the roar of lions.

Double Tent 

Double bed, en-suite bathroom with flushing WC and hot and cold running water/shower, cupboard for clothes, covered deck area, colonial chairs and table on the deck.

Twin Tent

Twin single beds, en-suite bathroom with flushing WC and hot and cold running water/shower, cupboard for clothes, covered deck area, colonial chairs and table on the deck.

At Quatermains Camp we will do our very best to make sure that you are enveloped by the natural world and that you will return home refreshed and with a new sense of wonder and understanding of the wildlife around us.

Quatermain’s Camp is a classic 1920’s style expedition camp modelled 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 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. 




Game Drives

To experience the real nature of the African bush and enjoy some of the many wildlife encounters this area has to offer we run 2 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.

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.

Bush Walks

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.

Birding Safaris

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. 

Amakhala Game Reserve is an ideal choice for your Big 5 Safari destination.

This 8,500 ha reserve is renowned for its truly awesome topography, created by the slowly meandering Bushman’s River running through it. 

Resting in the rolling Eastern Cape hills 80 kilometres outside of Port Elizabeth in the Addo area, Quartermain's offers a gentle, tranquil escape from the world. The abundant Amakhala wildlife includes Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, White Rhino, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and Buffalo, ranging over a breathtaking oxbow river plain in the heart of the 8,500 hectare, malaria-free conservancy.

Not only do we offer the much sought after Big 5, but there are over 16 antelope species, zebra, giraffe and many other small interesting species. Our elephant sightings are likely to be the highlight of your stay. In addition to game drives, we also offer boat cruises and guided walks. 

Amakhala Game Reserve has been awarded the voluntary label by Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa (FTTSA). Based on adherence to specific criteria such as fair wages and working conditions, fair distribution of benefits, ethical business practice, and respect for human rights, culture and the environment, the FTTSA label is an independent endorsement of fair and responsible tourism practise in South Africa.
