WELCOME TO EXPLORER CAMP

Balule Nature Reserve, Limpopo, South Africa

Bundox Explorer Camp is an eco-luxury tented camp that promotes a low-impact, immersive safari experience in the Greater Kruger Park. Located in the Balule Private Nature Reserve, this Big Five private concession is where guests will enjoy game drives through rugged Lowveld terrain, and our unique photographic hide is guaranteed to get you close enough to the wildlife to take a whole host of stunning photos - in complete safety.

The boma is a truly South African experience, where the focus is on laughter, listening to the sounds of the wild, and watching the fire crackle into the night. Don't be surprised if you hear the whoop of hyenas, the lion's contact calling, and the gentle sounds of nature while you're relaxing in your room at night.

The camp is in an intimate setting and has only a couple of staff members who run the show, from guiding to cooking and maintenance. The layout is intended to suit small groups, couples, and solo travellers who would enjoy a personal experience in close comfort with nature.

OUR ACCOMMODATION

There are four cottage-style, free-standing tents, each containing an ensuite bathroom with flushing toilets, cold tap showers, and bucket showers are flled on demand with hot water. The main area is in a prime position with a panoramic view of the bush and offers the perfect refreshment during summer.
