About this campspace #s000200

This, our most popular non self catering unit was built to supply rock bottom priced accommodation to the travelling youth of Europe between the famous ultra expensive 5 star lodges, and is located on the Klaserie river in the Greater Kruger Park. It consists of a solid built bushtent under a fruitful tree, which encourages the Purple crested Loerie and blue monkeys to your roof. This pad in the bush has a Queensize bed, with a snake and bounceproof base. Extra facilities are a BBQ to cook those cheap South African steaks, a tiny beer fridge, a coffee station, electric plugs, an 3 speed aircooler to keep the bed cool (or use the cold (or hot) shower) in the outdoor bathroom - a very unique experience! You also have the use of our pool and the hikes along the river. For this tent there is a BASIC camp kitchen available.
The price is the cheapest for 200Km around, and 2% of our neighbours. Bedding and towels included. (We also have luxury units available for the Zuckerman or Rockafeller's kids.

At night you should hear the zebras, jackal, lions, hyenas, and regularly the leopards walking along the river. At dawn, the monkeys on the roof or birds will wake you. See many videos of leopards and other wildlife on the two trap cameras. We have very little phone signal, but do have FREE WiFi. We are very near the main Tar road, and only 40Km away from the Orpen Gate of the famous Kruger National Park.

Meet Andre, your host

Two pensioners who can not survive with Zuma's US$2,20 per day pension started renting out rooms or bushtents on our little piece of paradise to survive.

We are a bush camp in the Greater Kruger Park, in the Timbavati Block, on the Klaserie river, 46 Km from Orpen Gate, and 35Km from Hoedspruit, between the famous millionaire resorts. We offer no luxuries, except the unbelievable star-scapes, with no light or air pollution, free sounds of the wild most nights. The roar of lions and quite regularly leopards, the howling of hyenas, the chattering of monkeys that will try to steal all your food if you allow them, and above all....deafening silence.
We charge R90pp (Us$6) for camping, and from R200pp for our basic en-suite rooms, to R350 pp for our luxury unit. Our neighbors charges R25,500 R18,000 and R72,000 around us.
I am a 1st prize winning champion storyteller and my wife a Cordon Bush cook.
