An intimate and rustic bush camp perched on the banks of a dry riverbed in the Nsala Private Game Reserve bordering the Timbavati and Klaserie Private Nature Reserves
Nsala Safari Camp is located in a game-rich private game reserve sharing unfenced borders with the world-renowned Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and the popular Kruger National Park. Nsala is an intimate and rustic bush camp hugged by marula and leadwood trees, and is perched on the banks of a dry riverbed overlooking a gentle s-bend in the meandering river.
The design of the camp is simple in its structure and offers all the charm of a bygone era while not compromising on modern comforts. Nsala maintains a standard of comfortable luxury while simultaneously offering a completely eco-aware, off the grid experience for those seeking a safari that reduces their carbon footprint.
The camp sits on an elevated area guarded by a high-reaching thatched roof. 3 chalets flow out from the main section housing a swimming pool, lounge/dining area, and boma. Each of the chalets is fully-enclosed and has a wooden glass sliding door.
3 thatched chalets (rondawels) flow out from the main section housing a swimming pool, lounge/dining area, and boma. Each of the chalets is fully-enclosed and has a wooden glass sliding door leading out onto a small patio area complete with table and chairs for relaxation.
Decor is subdued with a light colour palette carried throughout – there’s plenty of crisp, white linen adorning the beds, monochromatic wildlife images adorning the walls and furniture designed from a mix of wood grains. There’s plenty of storage space, and a stand-alone unit complete with shelves and hanging space. The bathroom is located in a separate room, and has a toilet, sink, bathroom furniture and an expansive shower.
The safari experience at Nsala provides ample game viewing opportunities with plenty of down time between game drives. Game drives last for roughly 3 hours and include a coffee stop (morning game drive) and sundowner stop (evening game drive) during the drives.
Drives happen when the predators are most active – at first light and last light. The hours in between drives can be spent relaxing at the pool, or reading a book on the deck overlooking the waterhole. Below is a list of safari activities to expect while on safari with Nsala Safari Camp:
- Morning and afternoon game drives in the Nsala Private Game Reserve
- Bird watching from the comfort of camp
- Boma sessions around the campfire
- Observing elephants when they visit the camp’s swimming pool (not guarenteed)
- Special occasion set-ups can be organised
