The Property 

Nsala Safari Camp is located in a game-rich private game reserve sharing unfenced borders with the world-renowned Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and the popular Kruger National Park. Nsala is an intimate and rustic bush camp hugged by marula and leadwood trees, and is perched on the banks of a dry riverbed overlooking a gentle s-bend in the meandering river. 

The design of the camp is simple in its structure and offers all the charm of a bygone era while not compromising on modern comforts.


  • The 3 thatched chalets can accommodate 2 people in each unit. There is space for a stretcher bed in each chalet, which means the accommodation can house 9 people at a maximum.
  • Beds are either configured in a twin-bed set up or king size bed, and linen is of a superior quality. Extra blankets are provided, and come in handy during the biting winter months. There are bedside tables and lamps; and lanterns for extra lighting.
  • The feel of the chalets is one of simple luxury, and chalets are completely closed off from the outside world, giving you complete peace of mind while on safari.
  • All bathroom amenities and the creature comforts from home are supplied. Water is supplied by the windmill in front of camp and is heated by traditional wood fired donkey boilers.

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

The camp is perched on an elevated area, overlooking a small waterhole frequented by elephants. A lounge, boma and viewing deck provide the perfect place to unwind and soak up the safari splendour of the Nsala Private Game Reserve.

And when the searing temperatures of summer hit the landscape, the sparkling blue splash pool provides the perfect respite from the heat. 

Safaris (Morning and Afternoon Game Drives)

  • The safari experience at Nsala provides ample game viewing opportunities with plenty of down time between game drives.
  • Game drives last for roughly 3 hours and include a coffee stop (morning game drive) and sundowner stop (evening game drive) during the drives.
  • Drives happen when the predators are most active – at first light and last light.
  • The hours in between drives can be spent relaxing at the pool, or reading a book on the deck overlooking the waterhole.
