The vast plains of the Camdeboo stretch from the foothills of the Sneeuberge, or Snow Mountains, in the north to the rugged wilderness of the Baviaans Mountains in the south. The Camdeboo also transitions from the tinder-dry Koup Karoo in the west to the gentler landscape of the Eastern Karoo and ultimately the lush rolling hills of Settler Country and the old Transkei in the east.

Central to the Camdeboo is the historic town of Graaff-Reinet, almost entirely surrounded by the Camdeboo National Park and dominated by the great bulk of Spandau Kop, which stands proud above the great horseshoe sweep of the Sundays River below Nqweba Dam.

The Camdeboo is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric regions of the Great Karoo.
