Situated on the Amakhala fenced reserve which runs alongside the N2 highway for around 15km, to an average depth of only 3km. It largely comprises reclaimed farmland and is reasonably well stocked with game.
Tucked away in a hidden valley in the northern part of the reserve, this tiny three tent camp tries to faithfully replicate that of a nineteenth century explorer, with no electricity, no private bathrooms, just simple white tents, a sandy-floored mess and authentic military furnishings.
Vehicle safaris and walking safaris are personally guided by owners Riaan and Julie Brand.
