Island Camp

Island Camp

The Island Camp is an exclusive rustic tented camp set on an Island in the Limpopo River. The perfect spot to unwind and take in the rare surrounding wilderness. Grab a book & a drink, and settle in for a relaxing blissful time in the wild!

The Island Camp is open and unfenced and lies between the border of South Africa and Botswana. It is open to the Thuli Game Reserve, and allows for various game species to move through the camp. Elephants, hippo and hyena are regular visitors, and there are also plenty of crocodiles in the surrounding pools of water. For this reason, we recommend only experienced campers and unfortunately do not permit children under the age of 12 years. We do not permit walking from the camp, as the chances of encountering elephants are very high. The camp does not have any cellular service or WiFi and so a hand-held radio will be provided for any emergencies. The camp is serviced by Eskom and so electricity is available and plug points are provided in the main kitchen and the tents.

There are 4 stands which sleep a total of 8 guests in 4 tents. The Island Camp is booked on an exclusive use basis, so you will have the camp to yourself.
