Motivation for award: Here at Quatermain’s 1920’s Safari Camp we pride ourselves on offering a ‘back to nature experience’ that truly focuses on the wild African landscape that surrounds us. As we are totally ‘off grid’ guests get to escape from the stress of everyday modern life and relax, knowing that they won’t be interrupted by an annoying work email! Personal attention is also guaranteed as we only accommodate 6 guests per night. As an extra treat we like to offer those staying with us the opportunity to swap any game drive for an exciting walk through the reserve with an armed and qualified professional trails guide, all at no extra charge. A thrill not to be missed!

Quatermain’s 1920’s Safari Camp

Charming, intimate and rustic

Quatermain’s 1920’s Safari Camp is an intimate and rustic, 3 Star graded, expedition style tented camp situated on the stunning Amakhala Big Five Game Reserve. This classic 1920’s-style expedition camp is modeled on the heyday of exploration, that golden era when adventure lay around every corner. Our intimate 6 bed camp offers you the opportunity to experience “Africa under canvas”, with three 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 central thatch 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 en suite bathrooms with modern conveniences.

Our comfortable colonial style tents will ensure you enjoy a genuine bush experience. As you unwind on your own private deck, you may be lucky enough to see an elusive bushbuck or hear the cry of the African fish eagle. At night as you lie under canvas one of the highlights of your stay is sure to be drifting off to sleep to the sounds of nature; you can frequently expect to hear jackals calling, the beautiful voice of the fiery-necked nightjar, maybe a screeching barn owl, or if you are fortunate, the roar of lions.

At Quatermains Camp we will do our very best to make sure that you are enveloped by the natural world and that you will return home refreshed and with a new sense of wonder and understanding of the wildlife around us.
