PLAINS CAMP, HOME OF RHINO WALKING SAFARIS
The ultimate safari experience has got to be discovering nature on a walking trail.
Plains Camp, on the only officially declared wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park was established specifically to provide this unique and exciting experience. Plains Camp’s focus is on exploring the 12 000 hectares of unspoilt reserve allocated for our exclusive use on foot, with short game drives to finish off afternoon walks. Our trails’ guides are highly qualified and experienced conservationists.
This respect is reflected in the camp itself, a shady tented haven which nestles under a thicket of knobthorn trees, overlooking the Timbetene Plain and waterhole. The décor is reminiscent of a bygone era of luxury, with authentic antiques and the finest white linens. With only four en-suite tents, the ambience and service is personal and intimate.
For the adventurous, a walk to the Sleepout Decks can be booked, where the night is spent under the stars listening to the night sounds so far removed from civilisation.
