Overview

One of Thornybush’s most luxurious safari camps, Saseka Tented Camp has been carefully set on the banks of a seasonal river in one of South Africa’s best private game reserves, a privately-run conservation area adjacent to the Kruger National Park. It is classic Big 5 country, and Saseka’s design means it is suitable for couples on a romantic journey.

It is a small and intimate camp: there are only nine tented suites at Saseka, plus a large and luxurious safari villa, Little Saseka – perfect for couples or families looking for superior privacy. Built to exacting standards and with an eye for detail, each suite overlooks the seasonal Monwana River, which is sometimes sandy and dry, sometimes flowing, but always attractive to wildlife. You can sit on your deck and watch animals and birds between rewarding twice-daily game drives. You will sit back on a specially-designed vehicle in the safe hands of a driver/guide and a sharp-eyed tracker, on the lookout for the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – as well as the other major players of the bush, from hippos to honey badgers.

Back at camp you have designer accommodation to look forward to, complete with air conditioning for perfect temperature control. Slide back the glass doors at the front of your suite and you will find a plunge pool on your private deck, the ideal spot to relax and watch a male weaver bird build an intricate nest or listen to the gentle song of a Burchell’s coucal…

Saseka is truly unique in its décor and gives you a feeling of being at a tented camp in East Africa. Set alongside the Monwana River which sweeps through the Thornybush Nature Reserve, the tents are exquisite and equipped with everything you need. It’s ideal for couples and friends travelling together, as the camp does not accommodate children under 16 years.

Rooms

Little Saseka

Each of the eight tented suites at Saseka looks out over the seasonal Monwana River and has been created to deliver luxury under canvas. You enjoy the comforts of air conditioning and the conveniences of Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, hair-dryer and telephone as well as your own bathroom with bathtub and shower. A large net-swathed bed takes centre stage in the room and boasts broad views of the wilderness outside; open the sliding glass doors and you walk out onto your private viewing deck with sun loungers and a plunge pool.

Facilities

Beautifully built from stone and timber, Saseka sits comfortably and unobtrusively on the banks of the seasonal Monwana River. The main lodge has a grandstand view of the riverbed, its covered indoor area flowing onto broad wooden decks with easy chairs. There is plenty of space to relax and socialise at the main camp – the two large fireplaces are popular in winter, which coincides with peak safari season.

A boutique gift shop is available if you would like a souvenir of your stay. Wi-Fi is available at Saseka, as is a laundry service.

Dining

You will enjoy three meals a day at Saseka, served at the main lodge either on the main deck or perhaps on the upper deck. If you feel like something a bit more private, then your host will be happy to arrange a table for two at your suite. Guests staying at the villa have a dedicated dining area for private meals.

All meals are prepared at the lodge and a team of chefs ensures all dietary requirements are catered for, with sufficient notice.

We had an amazing trip. Saseka was unbelievable - the room, the staff, the decor - everything. The food at Saseka was unbelievable. Every meal was outstanding!! We wished we could have stayed longer at Saseka, just because it was so hard to leave. We had an amazing trip and cannot wait to go back!!
