OENA Story

OENA Escapes

What started as a humble caravan park next to the Breederiver on the Badenhorst family farm turned into the Overbergs most awarded resort and glamping hot spot – Kam’Bati River Resort. This laid the foundation to take on other properties, estates and hotels to be managed with the same expertise and personal approach as is needed in a very competitive market.

The OENA portfolio now includes not only Kam’Bati River Resort, AfriCamps at Kam’Bati, but also the five star Jan Harmsgat, Mardouw Country House, the luxury family home Country Paradise House, EndCliff Safari Lodge, The Glen, Moffid’s Place and Sibani Lodge.

The OENA Management Team

With us it’s all about family and that is exactly how this success story started. OENA is made up of the last letter of each of the Badenhorst family members names (Jaco, Dene, Ian and Lienka Badenhorst) that founded the company.
