Accommodation near Fouriesburg, Eastern Free State


Turning Camelroc into what it is today was a labour of love. From a simple farmhouse to a haven for guests and adventure lovers, it’s been quite the journey. And it all started with a leap of faith back in 1997.

In 1996 we decided to change the direction of our life and headed out looking for opportunities. Whilst on vacation in the greater Fourisberg area, we stumbled upon a farmhouse that was for sale and we took the leap to make the purchase.

The original farmhouse was cozy, with three bedrooms and two baths, but it needed to expand for us to start our business. We rolled up our sleeves and expanded it to four bedrooms and five baths, making three of them en-suite. This allowed us to welcome guests, sharing a slice of our paradise, and so began the journey of Camelroc Guest Farm. As the years went, we developed multiple chalets and now we have seven chalets in total that can host from three to nine people each.

Our love for the outdoors inspired us to add a bit of adventure to Camelroc. We carved out a challenging 4×4 trail for thrill-seekers and developed two hiking trails. They might be short, but they’re tough and full of interesting spots, like ladders and bridges.

Mountain biking was next on our list. To stay fit and enjoy the outdoors, we built some trails right here on the farm. We have a 10km loop and a longer 33km trail that offers stunning views from Camelroc mountain. They’re not for the faint-hearted, but they’re a hit with experienced riders.

Adding to the experience on the farm, we have Blesbuck roaming the open lands and some house animals, which include 2 dogs and 1 cat. We occasionally get some visitors from Lesotho such as donkeys and cows.

Transforming Camelroc into a welcoming retreat for nature and adventure enthusiasts alike has been an incredible adventure, and we look forward to welcoming many more guests in the future.
