  • Facilities
Situated on a 27 hectare property bordering one of the few perennial rivers in the area, Calao Tented Camp is an enjoyable and affordable stopover. The camp offers various types of accommodation on a self-catering basis, but breakfast and dinner can also easily be arranged on request.

The camp consists of two luxury tents, each with an en-suite bathroom, verandah, gazebo, and braai area. There are also three safari tents with outdoor bathroom, verandah, gazebo, and braai area. Another small tent is provided for children or a third guest. There are lights in all the tents that work with batteries and we can charge your camera or cellphone batteries for you.

Calao Tented Camp is perfectly located ten minutes from the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, 30 minutes from the Kruger National Park's Orpen Gate, and 30 minutes from Swadini in the Drakensberg. There is easy access from the R40 but the last kilometer on the property is a dirt road and can sometimes be a difficult drive.

I stayed at the Calao Tented Camp during a long weekend in June. Service was perfect! Quiet, clean, peaceful! A short driving distance from the Kruger or Blyde River Canyon. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and want to be close to the bushveld, then this is the place to be! Could not have relaxed better! Will definitely be coming back!

A place to relax and recharge the soul. Hospitality is their priority. Will definitely be on our holiday list for years to come.

We were greeted with heartfelt friendliness, and felt at home right away. The luxury tent we had the privilege of staying in was as good as any chalet (if not better). We will be back!!

Alle ingredienten voor een bijzondere overnachting zijn aanwezig: een warm welkom, de sfeervolle safaritent, back to basic maar toch luxe, kampvuurplaats en douchen onder de sterrenhemel..... Een absolute aanrader!
