The Mountain Camp

Pypklipberg Mountain Camp

Our Mountain Camp is hidden on the side hill of Pypklip Mountain and is the ideal camp for walking lovers and hunters. The camp consists of 3 traditional Zulu rondavels (circular huts with grass thatched roofs) with en suite bathrooms. The rondavels accommodate 2 people each. There is one extra room with three beds in the main house.

Adults R650pppn | Children 12yrs R450pppn

Minimum stay of 4 people for 2 nights

Included in your stay: feather duvets and pillows, linen, firewood, household help and park entrance fees. This is your private bush stay, there will be no other guests at Pypklip camp during your booking.


The kitchen has all the necessary equipment to cook for 12 people. Food can be served in the kitchen, on the porch, on the wooden deck, or in the main rondavel which has an adjacent outdoor braai area. The main rondavel has a fireplace to warm the cold winter evenings.

We generate eco-friendly electricity with minimum impact on the environment.

  • Solar energy: electricity is generated by solar panels. We do keep a generator on standby for cloudy rainy days.
  • Fridge and freezers: the fridge with a small freezer compartment operates on gas
  • Charging batteries: cell phones and batteries can be charged in the main kitchen area
  • Cell phone reception: Please be aware this is a cell-phone-free area without wifi. There is a little cell phone reception on the wooden deck but it is rather unpredictable.

Good to know: The nearest shop is in Piet Retief, about a 50km (45min) drive from the main gate. We can do the shopping for you at a small fee if you prefer so. Give us a list and all delicacies will be ready in your fridge upon arrival.

Dear Jc and Ina, What a warm hearty welcome! This is being spoiled in its purest form. A little gem in South-Africa!

Our first accommodation in South Africa and a real winner! The beautiful landscapes of Mimi Moya, the animals, the weather, but especially the spontaneous hospitality and loving kindness of two generations Van Rooyens: Jc, Ina, Hansie and Tania, Thank you so much and until next time here at Mimi Moya!

JP en Rita Dewaele

I really liked it here, it was super fun! Especially the raft building and watching the fire. And of course Ina’s lovely food. I played a lot here and ate lovely Afrikaans food. When I am grownup I will come back for sure!!!

Thanks for everything, We really enjoyed every bit and definitely come back. Good luck with the house and I hope more people enjoy it! ‘This must be one of the best holiday resorts I have ever been to! Not every day you get to go and slide down a waterfall! It was a blast! I loved the horse rides!

Courtney and Gregory Webster

This was a wonderful encounter with South-Africa and an absolute privilege to be welcomed by this warm and loving family Van Rooyen during these days! If there is a peace of paradise on earth, then it is here with JC, Ina, Tania and Hansie! Well done!

Familie Wyckmans

Dear Tania, Hansie, JC and Ina, It was great to stay here some days! The ideal location to find rest after a long tour. I never could have imagined that we would see so many animals! Our boy will never forget his meeting with the giraffe and we will always remember the harmony with nature one still finds here. we hope to come back again one day! Thanks a lot for the warm welcome here. It was lovely to relax here in pure nature!

The visit to Mimi Moya was a bit like coming home. How do one describes the warm welcome by JC and Ina..warm rooibos tea and many stories to be told. Joy is the word that comes closest to what we experienced here... the swimming in beautiful spots, the braai and lovely food, Ina’s knowledge on the fauna and flora...this was a top moment in our tour. We can only recommend it wholeheartedly.

A discovery...another world! Bushes, dry grass, lonely hills... kudu’s, nyala...look up distracted and hop along.... A giraffe stands in front of our window as the sun comes up early morning.... Far away is the European stress... A heavenly water massage in the Witrivier and endless galloping ... A back-to-nature-stay which you truly enjoy and with authentic South-African hospitality that makes you feel at home!
