Read about our visit to Giant's Castle Camp - May 2015 - April 2016

The Giant’s Castle Game Reserve is located in the central Drakensberg, part of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, a world heritage site. Giant’s Castle Camp looks out over the Bushmans River and the mountainous sleeping giant profile in the distance. This 34,638 ha park was proclaimed in 1903 and is noted for preserving the Bearded vulture. There is a permanent hide, the Lammergeier Hide, that has been producing close-up viewing and photographs of not only the endangered Bearded vulture, but also other forms of wildlife, such as Black-backed jackals to the Verreauxs' Eagle, Jackal Buzzard and many more. Large herds of eland do roam the grassland hills and are sometimes seen from the camp.

Giant’s Castle Game Reserve ranges from a lofty 3280 meters, down to the river at 1300 meters, and hosts a wide diversity of plant and animal life. The legacy of the early San peoples is left recorded in the numerous rock art frescos, with the Main Caves, which is located close to Giant’s Castle Camp, being the most prominent one. This is an easy walk on the contour path from the camp, and has numerous exhibits of ancient rock art paintings on the cave overhang, as well as a diorama depicting these vanished folk and how they would have lived in these protective shelters. There is a local guide at the caves to assist in the interpretation.

Giant’s Castle Camp Activities

Hiking on the numerous marked trails.
Trout fishing
Swimming in the clear rock pools
Visit the San Main Caves Museum
The old ‘vulture hide restaurant’ is particularly popular and needs be booked well in advance. Guests would require a 4X4 to access the hides. Arrangements may be made with the camp for a transfer. Hides accommodate a maximum of 6 guests.
Numerous Rock Hyrax and diverse bird species abound in the grounds of Giant’s Castle.

A new hide is now open at Giant’s Castle but this one does not enjoy the aspect of the old one, with photography opportunities not as favourable as that from the Old Hide. Guests are normally able to book this new hide on arrival.

Please note that the district roads leading to Giants Castle Game Reserve are badly potholed in sections. The tar road in Giant’s Castle Game Reserve is in excellent condition.
