This unfenced tented camp will allow you to enjoy a true wilderness experience in the heart of the Makuleke bush 24/7 throughout the duration of your trail where the day’s bush activities literally start as you open the flap of your tent.

 Arguably one of the few remaining true wilderness areas in Southern Africa, The Makuleke is highly regarded for its biodiversity and spectacular scenery. Including the famous Fever Tree Forests and Limpopo River floodplains.

 The Concession is also well known for its large numbers of Elephant, Buffalo and Plains Game. In addition, an extensive list of over 400 species awaits the birding enthusiasts, including consistent sightings of the rare Pels Fishing Owl and Racket Tail Roller while, with a little more patience, sightings of Arnot’s Chat, Three Banded Coursers and Bohm’s Spinetail could be enjoyed.


  • Walk-in 2-man canvas tents with comfortable spring beds. Each tent has an enclosed en-suite ablution area with chemical toilets/porta-loos as used in caravans and boats
  • Four bucket type hot water showers, available twice a day, are provided to wash the days’ dust away
  • All meals are prepared on site in a gas driven kitchen including a hearty “Brunch” on return from the morning walk and a sumptuous three course dinner to end the day
  • The Camp Bar is stocked with a selection of basic local spirits, beers, soft drinks and a selection of good local red and white wines. Drinks at the Camps are included in the overall price.



  • Encounter the Big Five on foot
  • Get a unique life changing experience in the wilderness
  • Extensive range of large and small mammals
  • Over 450 bird species
  • Imposing sandstone ridges, exquisite Riverine Forest and the famous Fever tree forest


Morning walks commence at first light after coffee/tea and a light breakfast walking either from camp or using the vehicle to drive to a drop-off point, parking, then walking from and back to the vehicle. Driving back to camp, brunch is served with the option of a shower and some much needed down time before the afternoon walk or drive and sundowners.


Returning from the night drive back to camp we meet around the fire with ice cold drinks followed by dinner bringing to an end another amazing day in an area that is undoubtedly one of Southern Africa’s best kept secrets.
