We invite you to come to Moolmanshoek, experience its magic and be part of its future. Our campsite, situated 2 km from the Moolmanshoek Lodge is the base for the LDC and the hiking trails, with three types of accommodation for groups. The “Skeerhokke” can accommodate up to 100 persons in two large dormitories. The Hikers Hut can accommodate 16 hikers or other persons, while there also are 9 double rooms, four of them with their own bathrooms. We believe that every life experience contributes to personal development and growth. With this belief in mind our programmes are crafted in such a way to equip our visitors to be more influential and mature leaders.


We promote moral values and norms that are Christ like and Biblically based. It is our hope that in doing so we can have a positive impact on every individual visitor’s life and those they influence.

We invite you to come and share in this unique adventures as we endeavour to put the joy of outdoor camping within everyone’s grasp. We at Moolmanshoek are deeply committed to the renaissance of the Eastern Free State, her wildlife and all her people. We believe that the Eastern Free State heritage of sandstone mountain areas, wild animals and plant life should be recognised as one of South Africa’s precious natural resources, because the rewards of wildlife and nature conservation can be enjoyed in a sustainable way through multi-use tourism, benefiting not only travellers, but also the country and the rural communities.

As stewards of this beautiful land, we commit ourselves to sound management of both the natural and cultural resources, as well as the creation of enjoyable and enlightening experiences for our guests. Recognizing the important role that we as conservation oriented reserve owners have to play in redressing past imbalances, we also commit ourselves to meaningful development and empowerment projects within our surrounding community. Our guests play a significant part in our dream to create a model of integrated land management, incorporating international and local travellers and rural people, demonstrating that eco-tourism can be used on a sustainable basis to the mutual benefit of all.

  • "For the past three years, we have been taking our prefects to Moolmanshoek Leadership Development Centre. As one of the oldest schools in the Free State, we are very aware of our ethos of tradition inspired learning. The values we hold so dearly have to be mirrored by any institution or individual who works with our boys. Niklaas and his wife Isabel, who run the programme, have empowered our boys to be leaders in the true sense of the word by exposing them to activities and engaging them with thought-provoking discussions. Unlike so many leadership courses, the focus is not on lecturing them about leadership. What differentiates Moolmanshoek, is the strong focus on character building. In an absolutely breathtaking setting, the timeless values we have so painstakingly inculcated in our boys over so many years, are reinforced. There are many fun activities which force the boys to overcome their fears, discover their weaknesses and strengths and bond as a group. The boys and the staff are well taken care of and the food is both plentiful and really delicious."

  • "The first rugby team of Grey College visited Moolmanshoek LDC (MMH-LDC) at the start of the rugby season for a team building weekend. Niklaas, Isabelle and the whole team of MMH-LDC went out of there way to make it a really pleasant and worthwhile experience. That camp was one of the main contributors to the success the team had in 2018. The food, accommodation, and activities were of a very high standard. I will unconditionally recommend MMH-LDC for a school camp, team building or even a staff camp."
