Haggard and Brand Expeditions presents Quatermain's Camp

Welcome to Quatermain’s camp. Set in a secluded valley, 45 minutes from Port Elizabeth, flanked by sub-tropical thicket covered ridges, Quatermain’s camp embodies the original spirit of safari.

This classic 1920’s style expedition camp is 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. Guests at our expedition camp can enjoy the excitement of "Big 5" safaris on both the award winning Amakhala Game Reserve and the world renowned Shamwari Game Reserve, the latter by an exclusive private arrangement, in a malaria free area.
