About Molema Bush Camp

Molema Bush Camp is situated on the banks of the Limpopo River in the Tuli Block, about 30 km downstream from Platjan Border in the eastern-most corner of Botswana. Molema is located on privately-owned land immediately to the west of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, in an area soon to be incorporated into the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area, and is very easily accessed from South Africa. Tuli Wilderness’ private and exclusive 24,000-acre unfenced concession of Botswana wilderness makes an ideal getaway or stopover point for travellers between Botswana and South Africa.

Molema offers self-catering accommodation in wooden chalets, permanent dome tents and camping sites. The accommodation is exquisitely located close to the banks of the Limpopo River, shaded by huge Leadwood and Mashatu trees.

There are four wooden chalets, each with an en-suite bathroom containing a shower, toilet, basin, a veranda and a braai stand. These are comprised of three twin chalets, and one family chalet containing a double bed and bunk bed. One chalet is in a very private site overlooking the Limpopo River, but please note that it is 300 m from the kitchen. Towels, bedding and bathroom amenities are provided in the chalets, along with a daily housekeeping service. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with a fridge, freezer, gas stove, cutlery, crockery, glasses and cooking utensils, and a boma area available for chalet guests.

There are three camping sites, each with private ablutions, containing a shower, toilet, basin, and a braai stand. A maximum of eight persons and two vehicles are allowed per site unless the entire campsite is booked by the same group.

There are two permanently-erected dome tents, each containing two ‘camp cots’ supplied with linen and a private ablution shared between the two tents.

              Our second time there and even better than the first. Baboons and monkeys have become a problem though.

              We absolutely loved that Molema bush camp is rustic, private and makes you feel the nature. Lilian greeted us so warmly and quickly made us feel welcome and soon delivered us wood to make a wonderful fire in the bonfire spot that evening. Friendly Gerry took us on a game drive and was so informative and interesting to listen to, and he tracked and spotted uncommonly seen animals for us such as bat ear fox, eland, African hawk eagle and lion to name a few. If we lived closer, we definitely would visit more often and recommend any bush loving campers to try it out!The road from the main dirt...

              This is a great community camp. The people who work here and the drives we had were all fantastic. Definitely plan on staying here.

              We loved the friendly and helpful staff. (Cabins needed a little maintenance - toilets flusihing mechanisms broken), but overall excellent value for money. We loved the kitchen view over the riverbed.

              Thank you to "KB" for being such a special companion / ranger on this very special experience. We stayed on a camping site enjoying for once the luxury of expert game drive in a fabulous place only 6 hours away from Johannesburg and a swift border crossing to Botswana. If you are comfortable with camping in the wild, Molema in Tuli offers great wildlife sightings and landscapes.When taking the shower, just take note that the warm water tap is on the right. Also worth noting, on our way there we had a small incident and a day of delay and they kindly rearranged of reservation with no complicat...
