Amber Lagoon is a backpacker´s dream buried in the heart of the Klein Karoo, bordered by the Swartberg Mountains and the Gamka Nature Reserve.

Surrounded by ostrich farms, Amber Lagoon is a green oasis abundant in indigenous and foreign plants, trees and birds. It is here, where backpackers can truly relax and enjoy the real beauty of South African nature.

Surrounded by vast open space and beautiful views, relax in a malaria-free and especially safe environment, as well as enjoying freshly home-cooked meals in our open-air restaurant.

Relax at our big swimming pool and jump in when the African sun is beating down. Head out for an ostrich egg search with the farmer´s 4x4 and learn about ostriches and real ostrich farming. Enjoy a scenic drive through the Swartberg Mountains over the pass or go visit the Cango Caves, where there are vast drip-stone caverns and beautiful formations created by nature.

Visit the reserve located in the Gamka Mountains, which is the home to the endangered mountain zebra, an unusual protea, Khoisan rock art and marine fossils. Only 25 km from Amber Lagoon, lays the little village of Calitzdorp, famous for its wine and especially its port.

Amber Lagoon is a place which grows on a person very quickly. From the friendly and hospitable owners, Kurt and Susanne, to the views of the Klein Karoo during sunrise and sunset, this location stands out as a definite place to stay if you're looking for a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life. The panoramic view from the top of the hill at the campsite allows for some truly breath-taking... Read more

The accommodation and setup was very good but the host treated us like we were criminals going to run off without paying, even though we had already paid 50% deposit upfront.  Other 50% had to be paid on check-in rather than check-out.
