Set in a secluded valley, Quatermain’s Camp embodies the original spirit of safari. This classic 1920s style expedition camp is modelled on the heyday of exploration, that golden era when adventure lay around every corner.
Quatermain’s Camp, situated on the beautiful Amakhala Game Reserve, embodies the original spirit of safari. Our intimate camp offers you the opportunity to experience “Africa under canvas” with crisp white 1900’s style safari tents fitted out with military campaign style furnishings; the choice of pioneers, hunters and explorers of that time. Relax in the centralised boma area where local delicacies are prepared in front of you on an open fire and dinner is served under a blanket of stars. Every effort has been made to stay true to the expedition style, with concessions only being allowed for rustic bathrooms with modern conveniences. Guests at our expedition camp can enjoy the excitement of “Big 5” safari’s with the option for “Big 5” walks, bush walks and birding safari’s as well.
As we operate in “Big 5” areas you have a chance of seeing elephant, white and black rhino, leopard, buffalo and lion as well as a variety of other game including hyena, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, many species of antelope and much more. As well as the larger, more obvious creatures your hosts will delight in showing you the smaller but no less important members of this ecosystem as well as the birds and plants.
This camp also offers exclusive game drives on Shamwari Game Reserve by private arrangement.
