We enjoyed a one night stop over at Isinkwe Bushcamp while we explored the game parks - staying in the Bushbaby Treehouse. Everything was just lovely- clean & comfortable. We self catered in the fully equipped cottage but popped out to enjoy the Bushbaby feeding in the evening. We hope to be back soon, thank you!

perfect self catering unit and cute bushbabies made our visit. Not so far from the Hluhluwe National Park so its quite a good option if the park is full

This was the perfect place to park the tent and explore the area. The staff are friendly and super helpful and the dog is soooo cute! Will definitely be back and will bring friends...
