AfriCamps at Hoedspruit in Greater Kruger, Limpopo combines the best of South African wildlife, cultural heritage, spectacular landscapes, and year-round great weather. Located between Blyde River Canyon and Kruger National Park, you can expect some of South Africa’s best Big 5 game viewing and sightseeing experiences.
At AfriCamps at Hoedspruit 11 boutique glamping tents are dotted around a dam famous for catch-and-release fishing of Carp, Bass, Bream, and Barbel.

Our family-friendly camp invites you to a Lowveld safari experience that won’t break the bank.
Essential to the AfriCamps at Hoedspruit experience is one of our 8 guided game drives departing from the camp! Choose between tours to Kruger National Park, nearby private game reserves, the Panorama Route, the Blyde River Canyon, a sunset game drive, a guided nature walk, or a local village tour including traditional local cuisine.

It is no mystery why Hoedspruit in the Greater Kruger area is referred to as the Safari capital of South Africa, considering its perfect location close to Kruger National Park and some of the best-known private game reserves in the country for Big 5 viewing.

Apart from the wildlife, visitors flock to the area to explore the Panorama Route’s jaw-dropping landscapes and cultural heritage. The Panorama Route includes all the most beautiful views and vistas, waterfalls and natural wonders of the South African Lowveld. Points to check off your list are Graskop Gorge, Pinnacle Rock, God’s Window, Wonder View, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Three Rondavels, and Blyde River Canyon.

AfriCamps at Mackers | Hazyview
We set the bar high for our first camp outside of the Western Cape as AfriCamps at Mackers in Hazyview is magnificently set on the river bank of the Sabie River. Our luxury boutique glamping tents are all facing the river just a few meters from the streaming water and are surrounded by lush green grass and indigenous forest. The camp is just a few minutes’ drive from Hazyview, a small farming town that is famous for its banana, macadamia and coffee industry, but even better known for it’s easy access to the Panorama route and the Kruger National Park, two of the most popular tourist attractions in South Africa.
AfriCamps at Mackers is the perfect place to relax and explore when looking to spend some time in the Mpumalanga bush. Hear the nearby wild animals at night from the comfort of your luxury tent or walk a few meters over the soft grass to dip your toes into the river right in front of you. Spend some time in your own backyard taking a swim in the large swimming pool or taking a beautiful hike from your tent to admire the breath-taking scenery of waterfalls and wild rapids further up the river.
The camp is perfectly positioned to spend a few days exploring the area and visiting the many attractions in both directions of you. You could spend a day or two in the Kruger National Park spotting the Big 5 or driving along the Panoramic Route experiencing the breath-taking scenery and wonder of Gods Window, 3 Rondavels and Bourkes Luck potholes. Your host, owner Ryan will gladly offer tours for both routes.
