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.

The location is great. The game drives were wonderful and Jerry was fantastic! A table in the room would be wonderful!
