The bushcamp

The Bushcamp is situated on a small private reserve, bordering the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, about 13km away from the rural town of Hluhluwe. We offer several accommodation options to a maximum of 38 guests in 17 houses and chalets. WE are not only a bushcamp, next to accommodation, bar and restaurant we offer ‘on site’ horse riding safaris. Our horses roam freely on our property so don’t be surprised if you meet some of them around your room.

The camp is owner managed. Both owners come from the Netherlands,  most of the team members have a Zulu background and live in traditional, rural communities. WE Bushcamp & Horse Safaris tries to operate the camp with environmental awareness and social responsibility in mind.

Volunteer with us

Sharing is caring:
The place where we live is beautiful and it is nice to share that once in a while. That’s why we do welcome volunteers at the Bushcamp. They can stay for free if they are good company and when they help us out a few hours a day. Volunteers can help us with taking care of the horses or some bush- and maintenance jobs.

We don’t ask for money and help, we are just happy to have some help. You will earn your ‘free’ accommodation by volunteering for 4 hours per day. If you like to join us for cooking and all main meals that is also possible for R 200,- a day. For Airport pickup and other extra “services/needs” we will also charge you the cost price. Minimum stay is two weeks.

Earth without art is just eh:
We are very passionate about art, music and theatre and have always been involved in art, theatre and surrounded by creative people in our ‘previous life’. Although nature is beautiful, we sometimes do miss creativity and the art-culture around us. That is why we love to have artists and writers to come here to get inspiration and to work for a while. The camp and the nature seems to be inspiring and has led to some great work that was created here at the camp in the past. Most artist are not rich and we are always willing to make a deal about the cost of accommodation.
