Fodor's Review

It seems that the marula seeds softly falling on the tents are applauding this gorgeous little camp shaded by a canopy of giant trees. You'll feel like a sultan as you lie beneath your billowing, honey-colored canvas roof, which acts as a ceiling for your basket-weave handmade bed and headboard. Polished wooden floors, gauze-screened floor-to-ceiling windows, and a dressing area with two stone washbasins and gleaming old-fashioned bath create a feeling of such roominess

and elegance that it's hard to believe you're in a tent. The camp's dining area and lounge have an almost nautical feel. Huge wooden decks are tethered by ropes and poles on the very edge of the Timbavati River. It seems as if at any moment you could be gently blown into the sky over the surrounding bushveld.
