From the 1st of May 2019, Newmark Hotels, Residences, Reserves & Lodges will manage the Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve. The 14 000-hectare reserve in the Great Karoo region is the 17th property in the Newmark group, with 7 in design and construction phase.
Comments Neil Markovitz, Managing Director at Newmark: “The Newmark business model allows properties to remain true to their identity, to celebrate and showcase their unique characteristics, while being powered by the strength, positive reputation and unified force of the Newmark brand. Mount Camdeboo boasts a number of truly remarkable features that set it apart as a highly sought-after safari destination, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to include this property under the Newmark wing.”
The privately-owned Mount Camdeboo reserve offers a wide variety of experiences, including helicopter flights, game walks, cheetah tracking and stargazing, and there are plans to introduce lion and elephant to the reserve in the coming months.
The accommodation is just as varied, and features:
