Aberdeen Self-catering welcomes you

Relax in the heart of the Karoo

About Us

A welcoming farm-like atmosphere in the middle of the small historical Karoo town.

Aberdeen is well known for its beautiful architecture dating back to the 1800s. The Camdeboo has much to do – Valley of desolation, Nature parks, Bird watching, hike or bike.

Our Self-catering accommodation can accommodate up to 16 guests. Each cottage has an Air-conditioner, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, on site parking and a private braai area.

Hot summer days, we have a farm style swimming pool for all guests to enjoy, as well as a bigger Lapa / braai facility for groups.

We look forward to your stay,
Aberdeen Self Catering Team.

Guest Reviews

Wat ‘n heerlike oornag! Netjiese, skoon Karoo verblyf, ten volle toegerus. Jy is ‘n ster, dankie dat jy alles so mooi uiteengesit het en ons baie welkom geheet het! Ons het so lekker gekuier, ons kom beslis weer!
Baie lekker soos altyd! Nooit teleurgesteld.
We stayed in the tent, was a lovely experience, and the most luxurious camping we’d ever had. The campsite is incredibly spacious with a wonderful braai and relaxation area. We had a kitchen to ourselves, as well as a shower and toilet, so no shared facilities. It’s the kind of place where you can easily spend a happy week. Jurgens is an enthusiastic, thoughtful host, who has considered every single thing you might need.
Ons is baie hartlik en vriendelik ontvang, al het ons laat gearriveer. Ons verblyf was uit die boonste rakke en ek sal die verblyf vir enigeen aanbeveel.
The owner and managers were available at checking in, friendly, showed us around and were most hospitable throughout our stay. Our glamping area was large, private and everything was well thought out, provided and presented. We had a swim in the fabulous pool, which was clean and wonderfully refreshing in the Karoo heat. We had a memorable, 5-star glamping experience and have already told our friends about it.
Baie netjies en skoon. Vriendelike en behulpsame mense.
It was love at first sight from the moment the gates opened I enjoyed the relaxing environment thank you to Jurgens for the amazing communication I am definitely coming back with my kids and I won’t change anything Abt the place just maybe the DStv package for the sports but that place is awesome.
Baie vriendelik ontvang deur Jurgens, met alles wat jy nodig het. Dit was lekker om na die dag se reis buite te sit en te ontspan. Die honde is vriendelik en die hoendertjies loop ook daar rond. ‘n Gesellige plek en die andersheid mak dit spesiaal.
