Little Bush Camp is an intimate and luxurious safari lodge situated on the banks of the Msuthlu River in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve. Ideal as an intimate getaway for families or groups of friends, Little Bush Camp offers unparalleled seclusion, exclusivity and privacy in the heart of one of Africa's best Big 5 viewing regions. Each of the six luxury suites has a private viewing deck and heated spa bath while the main lodge, from its spacious lounge to the relaxed indoor and outdoor dining area, is wonderfully decorated and furnished in authentic African pieces.

Set off each morning for an game drive in an open-sided vehicle accompanied by your professional game ranger and local tracker; you will head out again after a lazy afternoon, and since the camp is set in a private reserve, thrilling night drives and off-road encounters are all part of the experience. The camp also offers dedicated children's activities and meals, ensuring they feel as part of the safari experience as you do.

Traveller Reviews

  • Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp is a must, a very special and privative place.

    Teresa Badia, September 2011
  • We adored Little Bush Camp and had a perfect safari experience. We saw four out of the big five on our first drive! The staff was attentive and really made the trip. You also got us he best room there! We loved socializing with all of the others at camp and our unlikely closest friend were a couple in their seventies celebrating their fiftieth anniversary. The Kherson sabi sabi camps were great but little bush is definitely the most relaxed, intimate and family oriented.

"This little gem offers an exclusive experience. Not only do the rooms have outdoor showers but also a jacuzzi on the deck. The food is excellent, not to mention the rest of the experience as a whole"
