“It's so quiet and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2010

We enjoyed the most relaxing 3 days in many a year, The bush camp has all the trimmings of a 5 star lodge and a fraction of the price. It is an awesome place to walk, ride or just chill with a book. The camp is spotless and very well maintained. And those nights....so quiet.
Only the sound of the owls and night jars...awesome

We traveled to Haaspoort for a weekend away with family and partners - it was truly amazing! Only an hour and a bit from PE with good roads and clear signage it is easy to get there. We chose the self-catering option.
Elizabeth and Sivia, the staff couple there were lovely, friendly and helpful - everything was clean and well looked after. Anything we wanted (we forgot sugar) they were more than happy to help us out with.
The chalets are equipped with everything you need and more (king size bed - bliss), lovely bath right next to the window makes you feel like you are bathing in the bush, towels, coffee and teas, drinking water, etc.
We used the bikes to go for long rides, followed the detailed walking trails and had a fantastic game drive with the owner Victor Watson. We saw so much, from buck to all types of trees and vegetation, birds and even an old shepards house.
We really had a great time and I did not want to leave! :)
I would highly recommend Haaspoort to anyone looking for a fantastic bush getaway from Port Elizabeth or anywhere in the world. Truly relaxing and of a very high standard.

We have just spend a wonderful two nights at the Haaspoort Bush Camp. The facilities there are excellent - beautifully designed to ensure a bush atmosphere (braais, fires, secluded homes with decks, outside showers, baths looking into bush etc.) but with all mod cons (large units, beautifully designed and decorated, with enormous comfortable beds, large bathroom with walk-in shower and large bath, tea and coffee-making facilities etc.). Also, a nice pool area and communal lapa and Braai. Fantastic location if you like hiking. Plenty of birds, buck, vervets etc. A must if you need to wind down. Also, a great place for family and friends holidays.

For a UK traveller it was an experience to drive 17km down a gravelled road and arrive almost at the gates with a puncture! This was very swiftly sorted by Victor & Evan and the next morning a replacement car arrived ! Wonderful, warm, friendly and very professional service in a marvellous location. Loved the game drive and sundowners at a beautiful viewpoint. Wished we had stayed longer - we will next time!

My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful weekends spent at Haaspoort Bushcamp, most recently with our baby. The camp, which is only an hour and 10 minutes drive from Port Elizabeth, is in the heart of the bush and is secluded enough to allow you to unwind completely. Chalets are comfortably and thoughtfully designed to ensure privacy and beautiful views of the bush from your bed- and bathroom. There is nothing quite like the beautiful Karoo landscape – it gives you such a sense of peace and tranquility. We love going for early morning walks or reading on the deck of our chalet. Cosy evenings around the fire at the Lapa are another favourite with us, as are the game drives! The hosts, Lindsay and Victor, are extremely hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. Not to mention Lindsay’s catering, which is first-class! What a remarkable spot…we highly recommend it!

My Fiance and I stayed at Haaspoort Bushcamp and had an amazing time in this quiet and beautiful place. The chalets were so elegant and the service was top notch. There's nothing like a spectacular game drive with sundowners followed by a romantic bubble bath for 2 overlooking the lush landscape. The pool was a delightful break from the summer heat and we will never forget the good wine and great laughs around the fire at night under the vista of stars. It's a bit off the beaten track but well worth it and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get away for a truly wonderful African nature reserve experience with a spouse or children of any age.
