The Balule Big 5 Safari Package Experience

This small camp is situated in the Balule Nature Reserve which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. With only four tented style rooms the camp can accommodate a maximum of eight guests. This ensures that you have personal attention at all times and you are welcomed into the safari family from the moment that you arrive. The lodge can also be booked on an exclusive use basis (fully catered or self-catering options available).

All the tented style rooms are en-suite with inside baths and outside showers as well as small private viewing decks for an authentic safari experience. The main lodge area boasts a viewing deck with boma fireplace and pool which overlooks a waterhole in front of the lodge. Meals are served in the dining area or on the main deck, and private dinners can also be arranged on your own viewing deck.
