Reviews of Urikaruus Wilderness Camp

Really lovely camp. Staying here gives one the opportunity to drive up to Mata Mata and down to Twee Riveren along the Auob valley stopping at various waterholes along the way.
The waterhole in front of the camp attracts various inhabitants of the area. We were lucky to see the lion and leopard come to drink water from our deck.
We loved this camp and would definitely stay here again!

Best area for game viewing
Urikaruus is situated in the best area for game viewing.
The accommodation is rustic but excellent value.
This was excellent!
the camp warden Eric was attentive, proud of his accommodation and kept the place beautifully
superb situation despite that we saw very few animals here we would return at the drop of a hat!
Urikaruus - an alternative to South Aoab
We stayed just one night at Urikaruus which served us to explore the south part of the Aoab river bed. This part of the river bed (from Kamqua to Houmoed) is extremely arid which means that the populations of water dependent antelopes and thus, carnivores, are sparse. Nevertheless we were privileged to watch two different troops of Meerkats, both on different days and at early morning hours.
The camp itself is very well located, with cabins overlooking a waterhole on the Aoab riverbed. Yellow mongoose was seen actively hunting.
The guard was helpful and attentive. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the kitchen very well equipped, and both with a nice balcony to the waterhole.
