About Roam Explorer Camp

Roam Explorer Camp, tucked away within the vast expanse of Roam Private Game Reserve in South Africa, is the perfect location for travellers seeking the ultimate wilderness camping experience. What sets Roam Explorer Camp apart is its exceptional location in the heart of the ancient and endless semi-desert landscape of the Great Karoo – characterised by the backdrop of the Swartberg Mountains, flat-topped koppies, rock-filled valleys, and dry riverbeds dotted with acacia scrub.

Accommodation at Roam Explorer Camp consists of five explorer tents, each interlinked by clear pathways and dotted around a central area with a fire pit and a dining/seating area for meals under the stars. The explorer tents can accommodate a total of 10 people in a twin-bed configuration, and are equipped with comfortable linen, soft-glow lanterns, and private wooden decks with camping chairs for relaxation.
