About African Ranches River Camp

African Ranches River Camp is situated on the banks of the second largest river in southern Africa, the majestic Limpopo River. The camp offers an ideal spot for a weekend getaway or an overnight stop en route to central or northern Botswana.

The facility offers campsites with clean ablution facilities. The campsites have sweeping river views and the terrain is scattered with a large variety of indigenous trees and offers incredible bird life for the keen bird-watcher. Enjoy the sight of hippos frolicking in the water, as well as crocodiles lazing in the sun. Guests can also enjoy hiking, mountain biking and fishing. This is definitely the epitome of camping.

Spend your days in the shadows of the large trees and listen to their gentle whispers at night while sleeping under a star-studded sky far away from any city life. Located only 32 km from Martin’s Drift/Groblersbrug Border Post, it is only a four-hour drive from Johannesburg and a four-hour drive from Gaborone. The property is accessible by all vehicles.

      Overall a good experience. One of the two showers did not work properly (cold water tap did not work).

      Lovely camp site for a night or two. Loved being supplied with firewood and clean dry towels!

      We loved it. Exceeded our expectations. Sam was so supportive, had flu and never missed a beat stoking the warm water donkey. Hippos close by at night and saw bushbuck and a bull of a crock in the river. The Botswana monkeys are well behaved, wow... Never pestered us. You will see us again.

      We had a lovely time on the banks of a full Limpopo River, with the hippo's visiting us at night and having fun in the river. Seeing all the birds and the call of the Fish Eagle gave us all the peace and rest after a busy first quarter of the year. Thanks to Sam for his hospitality,he is a great guy. The ablution block was very neat and clean and hot showers available. In future they will see us again. Annarjie Erasmus, Mokopane, Limpopo.
