A guided walking experience exploring the bush.

This seasonal camp offers adventurous guests an authentic walking experience to explore the Karoo while sleeping in luxury tents and enjoying evenings around a campfire. The camp is located along a beautifully shaded riverbed and qualified guides enhance birding, cultural and natural history experiences with opportunities to encounter the Big 5. The Explorer Camp operates during the summer months (October – April) and each wilderness trail takes two days to complete, with departures each Friday. Regretfully, no persons younger than 16 years are able to participate in the wilderness trail walks.

Details & Amenities

The Explorer Camp offers three canvas tents that can sleep a maximum of two people each. The tents are placed in fairly close proximity to one another, without encroaching on the privacy of the other tents. Wild animals are able to move through the camp at any time and although all safety precautions have been followed in setting up the camp; this remains a reality.

Each tent includes the following amenities:

  • 2 x stretcher beds with sheets, duvets, and pillows
  • En-suite facilities are available on request with bucket shower, chemical toilet, and canvas basin.
  • 1 x Hammock nestled away under a ancient Schotia tree
  • Guest amenities include insect repellent, towels, sanitary bags, as well as biodegradable shower gel and shampoo.
