This magnificent private and self-catering bush camp near Hoedspruit, in the heart of Africa's Big 5 Wildlife Country, is set in lush, indigenous and tropical surroundings. You will find humongous Jackal-Berry, Sycamore Fig, Knob Thorn, Bush Willows, Monkey Orange and Marula among others. Our camp is fully serviced and equipped and has two thatched chalets as well as a two bedroom, wooden cottage sleeping eight guests in total. Each unit has its own en suite shower and toilet.
The communal self-catering lapa and kitchen is equipped with two fridge-freezers, a gas stove and oven, a kettle as well as crockery and cutlery. A smaller adjacent lapa serves as the dining and pub area where you can have a braai and other outdoor cooking on an open fire. Potjies, braai grids, pots and cast iron pans are all available for you to use. The only thing you need to bring is your food and drinks. Sit back, relax, enjoy the scenery or have a splash in the sparkling pool. Patric and Liesbet will pamper you by cleaning your room, making your beds, preparing your table, making the fire, washing the dishes, cleaning your vegetables and bringing you your coffee or tea in bed. The staff of Kwa Thabeng Bush Lodge will make your self-catering stay an unforgettable memory. You will walk away from here with a true African experience and like so many others you'll be back soon.
On arrival, you will find that the lodge is situated between the majestic Drakensberg escarpment and the constant flowing crystal clear Blyde River. The elevation difference from top to bottom is 1200 meters and lends itself to a diverse habitat that varies from fynbos to dense forest, which in turn attracts an abundance of varied bird life. Here you can hear and spot the ever so elusive Purple Crested Lourie, Knysna Lourie, Trumpeter Hornbill, Green Pigeon and Giant Eagle Owl, to name but a few of the over 500 bird species that have been recorded in this area by well known ornithologist, Dr. Peter Milstein. It's a bird watcher's paradise.
This is the ultimate, affordable and ideal holiday, in a relaxed atmosphere where family or friends alike can experience breath-taking scenery, wildlife, daring adventures or peace and quietness with everything the magic of the Lowveld and escarpment can offer. Here you can plan your own activities and unwind from day-to-day in an idyllic tropical paradise. It's here where time stops and life begins.
