overview

Plains Tented Camp is situated in a private concession within the Kruger National Park, and is built in true pioneer tradition, reflecting the ambience of a 19th century naturalist's rest.

Plains Tented Camp was constructed with 100% natural materials, and great care has been taken to preserve the pristine natural surrounds. The whole safari lodge is raised on stilts and solar power is used for all energy requirements.

The safari lodge overlooks the spectacular Timbitene plain; the best place to spot game is the wonderful private plunge pool. Set out each morning to track elephant and rhino on foot, and again in the afternoon. Or view game on professionally guided game drives, with the chance of spotting the Big 5.

Traveller Reviews

  • Rhino Plains Camp and the sleepout were even better and a highlight of my trip. I was the only guest and so had the place and guides to myself. We did 30 kilometres of bush walking over 3 days.
