What We Say
In the savannah bushveld that borders the Karoo, just 140km from Port Elizabeth, lies Haaspoort Bushcamp in a private nature reserve. Here you can walk, cycle or self-drive in the company of zebras, blesbok and
klipspringers. The roads are scenic and offer views of the charismatic Cockscomb Mountain. There are bird hides and day trails that lead you to pretty pools of water or Black Eagle nests. The accommodation is four-star, very good value, and perfect for a small group. There are two twin rooms, a honeymoon suite and a spacious family room. Even though this is a self-catering destination, you can opt to have a special game drive breakfast or an afternoon game drive. There's a small swimming pool for the hot months, and even a 'star deck'.
