Situated on the border of Lesotho and South Africa just outside Fouriesburg and facing the spectacular sandstone hill with the outcrop shaped like a camel’s head (giving it it’s name) is the tranquil farm of Camelroc, with glorious views of the Maluti Mountains. Camelroc can is a perfect base from which to explore the Eastern Free State as well as Lesotho, the farm also boasts a range of activities including a mountain biking trail. For those who prefer to stay at base and relax, one can opt to take walks into the mountain, have a swim in the pool and braai beside the cottage whilst enjoying the serenity and splendour of this Eastern Free State countryside.
A true country stay, Camelroc boasts beautiful views of the countryside, bird life, small game, rock art and the Poplar tree’s turning in Autumn. There are seven chalets that are fully furnished and well equipped to self cater. In the main homestead one can be accommodated in the guest house, three rooms sleeping 6 are all en-suite and tastefully decorated with Oregon pine furnishings. The Guesthouse, built from traditional sandstone, has a fireplace in the lounge.
This is a genuine MOUNTAIN bike trail. Set out in the Rooiberge of the Eastern Free State, near Fouriesburg. Beautiful and varied single trail purpose built for authentic mountain biking. Excellent views along most of the trail. This is for the adventurer who wants more than just riding on gravel roads and Jeep tracks. You will not want to ride this exciting trail just once!!!
The MTB route is a new addition at Camelroc Guest Farm and has been laid out in the mountainous region of the Eastern Free State. We have two routes. A 10km figure eight route which is completely on Camelroc Guest Farm. The second route is 30km, with some two short-cuts to reduce the route to 10km’s and 20km’s as well. This route is quite difficult with a very tough climb up to the mountain top. The trail is mostly single track and quite technical. Riders are advised not to ride beyond their capability. If in doubt “get off and push”. The trail has been very well laid out with great variety. Winding through trees, along the Small Caledon river, climbing the mountain, long winding down-hills (after the climb!!) Beautiful views overlooking the Maluti mountains, the two Caledon rivers, rural Lesotho, and viewing Blesbuck.
