Biyamiti Bushveld Camp
On the banks of the Mbiyamiti river, hidden by Delagoa thickets, nestles one of the most beautiful bushveld camps in the Kruger National Park.
The camp is ideally situated between huge Wild Fig and Jackalberry trees with vast numbers of other fauna and flora species in abundance. The area is a game spotter’s dream come true.
With walls built from authentic buffalo dung, Camp Shawu reflects the Africa described by famous explorers of colonial times. Located in the 20 000 hectare private concession in the south-eastern section of the Kruger National Park, the camp has five large rooms overlooking the Mpanamana Dam. All the rooms are equipped with romantic ball-and-claw baths, a sitting area facing the fireplace, ceiling fans and outside shower. Large verandas provide the ideal location to view the game coming down to the dam to drink. The central facility has a lounge, indoor and outdoor dining area and a splash pool. Camp Shawu offers walking trails on request, where guests can experience a typical old-fashioned safari first-hand. Safaris in open four-wheel-drive vehicles are also available.
Jock Safari Lodge is nestled where the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers flow as one, situated in the South-Western corner of the Kruger National Park.
The lodge offers 6,000 hectares of exclusive traversing rights in an area of the park which is celebrated for its big five game viewing.
Letaba River Camp
Situated alongside the Letaba River, the camp boast loads of benches from which to watch waterbuck, hippo and crocodile in the water. Around sundown, these benches are packed out. You can have drinks served to you there, even though the viewing area sits on the outside of the restaurant.
Little Bush Camp
Nestling in the shade of indigenous riverine trees on the banks of the Msuthlu river lies Little Bush Camp, the newest addition to the Sabi Sabi collection of 5 star safari lodges. Little Bush Camp offers luxury accommodation for family, friends, or small groups. Exuding the same warmth and effortless hospitality that characterises Bush Lodge, Little Bush Camp offers unparalled intimacy and seclusion.
South East Camps
In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle.
Mopani Rest Camp is one of the largest camps in the north, yet it doesn’t feel this way at all. The bungalows are positioned with lots of vegetation in between, so the bush hasn’t been compromised as much in the construction process. This creates the sense of being constantly surrounded by nature. The intimate feel of the camp is further enhanced by the fact that Mopani has two satellite camps, thereby dispersing the guests and giving everyone their own little spot in the veld.
Set in a leafy, evergreen thicket on the banks of the Sand River, each room at River Lodge offers panoramic views of the water and the wildlife it attracts.
Padded loungers beckon from the private veranda of your suite, inviting you to while away an afternoon of activities in the greenery and admiring the occasional herd of elephant taking their daily bath.
Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion.
Talamati is a Xitsonga word that means "Lots of Water”. Yet, despite the meaning of the name, the river is actually dry.
The clay soil however, acts as a giant sponge holding a vast reservoir of underground water and keeping the vegetation lush all year round. Talamati Bushveld Camp is situated in a large open valley, affording superb game viewing opportunities. The luxuriant grassveld in the area attracts large herds of grazers, and the predators never lurk too far behind.
At the satellite camp of Tamboti, 3km from Orpen, you’ll find 30 safari tents on sturdy wooden platforms, tucked away in the bush and scattered along the fence overlooking the river. Although the three-sleeper tents have their own kitchens and bathrooms, the two- and four-sleeper tents share kitchens and ablutions. You do, however, have your own fridge and braai area.
