Situated on the eastern edge of the Great Karoo, near the historic town of Philippolis, the Kammarieb Private Reserve is located in a region that is steeped in history and boasts wonderful views, natural beauty and a variety of fauna and flora that is seldom found in areas of comparable size.  Kammarieb is the Nama word for ‘wild’ or ‘wilderness’ and this word aptly describes the remoteness of the area while also reflecting on its history.

Come and enjoy the wonderful views and the remoteness of Kammarieb in our small and exclusive lodge which is especially geared towards one to three families or small groups who want to experience and enjoy the Karoo together.

Kammarieb Private Reserve is fully stocked with all species of common plains game including giraffe, cape eland, kudu, mountain zebra, oryx, waterbuck and many other species.  Game watching, whether on a game drive, while hiking or while relaxing on the veranda is an on-going activity.  More than 180 bird species have been identified in Kammarieb.  Being situated on the Vanderkloof Dam provides an opportunity to spot many water bird species that are seldom seen in the arid Karoo.
