PRIVATE, AFFORDABLE COMFORT DEEP IN THE BUSHVELD.From your own private spacious gardens and private splash pool, down to our high quality linens and towels -our rustic yet comfortable air conditioned stone and thatch cottage at Bush Camp Number 70 is set deep in the bushveld, and rests high upon the banks of the Olifants River within the private 1000 hectare Ndlovumzi Nature Reserve. You will enjoy panoramic views of the river, and more than one hectare of private space and gardens within a security game fence- complete with large fire pit and braii area. Enjoy 24 hour full access to the Ndlovumzi Nature Reserve for bush walks and game drives. A wide variety of riverine birds, as well as hippos and crocodiles in the river can be viewed and heard from the safety of the screened in verandah. Duiker, monkeys, bush bucks, and other visitors may visit your surrounding gardens- while giraffe, kudu, nyala, zebra and many others bushveld fauna are right outside the camp gates! Our somewhat remote bush camp (a 30-45 min. Drive from the main tar road) is perfect for family holidays, romantic retreats from civilization and those looking to escape to the bushveld and enjoy nature at its best. UNLIKE other listings located nearby, that share kitchen, pool, and open spaces with other guests and the host- here there are no other rental cottages or rondavels on site. The cottage features a large screened verandah, and an open plan lounge kitchen and dining area with all new furnishings. The kitchen is furnished with a gas 4 burner, a microwave, tea kettle, full sized refrigerator, and toaster, as well as pots, pans, plates and utensils. There are two private air conditioned bedrooms, as well as an rustic open upstairs loft sleeping area with two single beds*. There is a water closet with separate tub and sink room, as well as a outdoor shower. No TV. Maximum guests allowed is 4 adults with 2 children old enough to sleep in the loft beds. During the summer months we do not allow guests to use the sleeping loft, as it is too hot for comfort. Maximum capacity during the summer is limited to 4 persons in two beds. There is a washing machine available on sight. High-Speed satellite Internet access available. While our bush camp is located 13km from the R527 tar road, we are still close enough to make comfortable day trips to local sites. We are approximately 35 km from Hoedspruit town center, a 45 min. drive to the Moholoholo Wildlife Refuge or the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center, and 90 minutes drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger National Park. The Panorama Route to Graskop and back, including stops at the Blyde Canyon 3 Rondavels viewpoint, Bourkes Potholes, and God's Window makes a pleasant full day trip. Still, our happiest guests come to retreat in camp, and often never leave during their stay.We welcome all questions, and can help you plan your trip to our beautiful lowveld region!
