En-Suite Tent

The luxury tented suites at Explorers Camp makes roughing it in the African wilderness an absolute dream. Guests enjoy a stylish room that perfectly blends the simplicity of a traditional, under-canvas safari with modern comforts and contemporary interior design. The spacious, comfortable tents make the perfect resting place after a day of exploring Marakele National Park.

For those travelling with children, Explorers Camp has a family tent option that can accommodate two adults and two little ones.


When you find yourself at the lodge between game drives and walking safaris, Explorers Camp has plenty to keep you entertained. Large, grassy open areas provide plenty of space for kids to play while adults unwind with a good book and chilled drink. Escape the heat of the African sun with a dip in the pool or watching herds of elephant and other animals visit the watering hole as you relax in the shade of a thorn tree. Evenings at camp are best spent exchanging safari stories around the fire after indulging in dinner under the stars.


Explorers Camp might not have a fancy on-site restaurant, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get to indulge in delicious gourmet dishes. Meals can be taken indoors or out, and private dinners can be arranged.
