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.
We provide you with the best lodging the Amakhala Game Reserve has to offer and Quatermain’s Camp is testimony to that.

“My wife and I have just finished a 3 night stay at Quatermain’s Camp and to say this is a unique experience is an understatement. Riaan and Julie have created what can only be described as very special opportunity to live in the African bush under canvas but with the essential additions of a personal loo and shower. The wildlife knowledge exhibited by Riaan and his staff is limitless and the game drives in the Amakala and Shamwari Game Reserves were spectacular. We will definitely consider a further stay if we get the opportunity to visit South Africa again.” –prl888
“f you are looking for a safari right now, STOP looking any further!!!
This camp set up by Riaan is an amazing place and experience on earth! Riaan made from his dream/passion the reality and with great success!!! This is the best thing we did on our trip in South Africa. As soon as you arrive on the camp you feel like your in the middle of the jungle with lots of animals around. This camp brings you back to the real safari (not like the big expensive lodges in the parks), campfires, making the food on a (real!) braai and lots of game drives to see the big five. The tent you sleep in even got his own bathroom what makes it comfortable and luxurious.” –TonyvandeKasteele
“Perfect balance between bush experience and comfortable camping. The tents are large and comfy equipped with a great bathroom. The safari and the rangers are great. The hosts are wonderful and treat you like family. Wish I stayed longer.” –Milan186
