Nsala Safari Camp

★ ★ ★ ★

The Nsala Safari Camp lies adjacent to the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and the Kruger National Park with no fences in between allowing wildlife to roam free between the reserves. Due to its small size and hugged by Leadwood and Marula trees, Nsala is a rustic safari camp offering a very personal and intimate safari experience.

Nsala features three thatched chalets. Each of the spacious chalets is fully-enclosed with wooden glass sliding door which leads onto a small patio featuring table and chairs. The bathroom is set in a separate room, offering a toilet, a sink, bathroom furniture as well as an expansive shower. The chalets can either be configured in a twin-bed or king set-up.

Room features:

  • 3 stand alone, rounded thatched chalets that lead off from the main area of the camp
  • accommodates 6 people, with 2 in each chalet
  • en suite bathrooms with expansive showers
  • bathroom amenities
  • hanging space and plenty of storage space for luggage and clothes.


The camp has been constructed on an elevated area which is sheltered by a high-reaching thatched roof. The design of is safari camp in South Africa is basic in its structure offering all the charm of a bygone era while not compromising on modern comforts and conveniences.
The lodge makes use of solar power throughout the camp which enhances the natural and authentic safari experience. Water is supplied by the windmill and is heated by traditional wood-fired donkey boilers.

Safari Drives and Wildlife

The Nsala Private Game Reserve is home to the Big Five and features a wealth of mammals and other predators. Guests explore on their safari drives lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, African wild dogs, and the Nile crocodiles to mention but a few of the predators found here. Smaller wildlife includes jackals, mongooses, civets, and genets, among others. As this area has various riverbeds, plenty of den sites are available for big cats.

Furthermore, mammals can be admired during the morning and afternoon safaris such as elephants, giraffes, hippos, buffalos, and rhinos. The varied habitat forms a bird watchers paradise with water birds such as herons, storks, spoonbills, and sandpipers being found here.
