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.

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...

We loved the midnight visit of ellie to our campsite even though it damaged the watertap and drained the camp’s reservoir. The wood supplied for our fire was the best quality ever purchased in my whole life. We enjoyed the the real rugged bush experience. Want to go back again sooner than later.Do not have any suggestions for baboons raiding the dustbins, they clever enough to open the lids on the new bins provided. Entering Botswana through Platjan was a breeze. I will however consider Pontdrift due to shorter gravel road distance, and dry river crossing allows, in future.

We loved Molema Bush Camp. And we had a warm welcome from Lillian and Joseph even though we only arrived at 9 the evening. Would recommend it to anyone. The open air hot water showers was awesome.
