About Coombs Camp
Situated just 20 minutes on the East London side of Grahamstown, approximately halfway between Durban and Cape Town, Coombs Camp is an eight bed, tented bush-camp, nestled in amongst secluded Eastern Cape valley-forest. The reserve is teeming with a variety of bird species and small game and is an ideal retreat for nature lovers.
The lodge is set on 80 ha and is stocked with small game. We are not a Big 5 type reserve with lions snapping at your heels, champagne game drives and the like - it's do-it-yourself territory. We are self-catering only, and guests are responsible for all their own cooking and entertainment around the pool and braai.
The comfortably appointed twin bedded luxury safari tents are set in forest thickets, adjacent to the main lodge and pool. All sites have private shower and toilet facilities in canvas-under-thatch units adjacent to the tents.
Check-in must be before 17:00 hrs on day of arrival. Later arrival times by prior arrangement, only.
Please phone and advise estimated time of arrival on day of travel and please ensure that a cell phone number is included in the booking contact details, on which you can be contacted on your day of travel.
