Witmos Oxwagon camp site was carefully chosen as a base for eco tourism, set among scattered thorn bushes in a basin among high mountains and cliffs. Enjoy hiking, game drives or just a relaxing away from the bright lights. Witmoskloof is home to the black eagles, a plethora of other birds and several game species. The bird life is endless and 49 species were spotted within an hour on a recent bird watch hike.
Guests have the freedom of exploring a 25 000 ha conservancy formed by four district farmers.
We do offer game drives on arrangement. We also offer 4X4 Routes, mountain bike trails, walking trails, and trout and fly fishing in close proximity. On the game drives expect to see Kudu, Mountain Rheedbuck, Zebra, Eland, Red hartebeest, Blue and Black Wildebeest, Bushbuck, Impala, and other small antelope.
In the eveings sit in comfy chairs around our crackling fire, or experience our boma where under the star-studded African night sky you can listen to the roar of the fire and the music of the African night bush.
Indoor entertainment includes puzzle and board games for children and adults (in the true tradition of the unique way of life of the early settlers - before the bright lights and television!)
The beautiful Mountain Zebra Park is 90 km away (less than an hour). Also in close proximity are the Addo Elephant park, the Valley of Desolation (Graaff-Reinet), the 1820 Settler Monument (Grahamstown) and for the die-hard must-have-lights person, the Coastal city of Port Elizabeth.
A central building "The Wagon House" constitutes the heart of the camp. It is stunningly furnished to fit the entire theme. Here one can enjoy traditional meals at the 16-seater yellowood table, fashioned by your hosts. On the menu: Homemade bread and vetkoek, potjiekos, liver in niervet, kudu fillet and other game dishes. Best of all... Ouma Hanna's melktert!
