This tented safari camp offers guests spectacular golden plains, breathtaking sunsets and Big 5 game viewing. The ""Place of the Giant Eagle Owl"", is the ideal location for a starry-eyed getaway. Discreetly tucked away in the tree line on the edge of the magnificent Mvubu plain, the hotel pampers its guests in five luxury canvas tents, where romantic oil lamps and home-cooked meals served in the thatched Lapa add to this unique 'Out of Africa' experience.
Situated in the malaria-free Mabula Private Game Reserve, this safari camp is 190 km from Sun City, 47 km from Bela Bela, 150 km from Pretoria and 200 km from Johannesburg International Airport.
The five luxurious en-suite tents have been spaciously designed with soft furnishings in strong hues of rich African colour and are raised on platforms thus maximizing privacy at all times. Each tent enjoys a private deck overlooking an open plain.
