Spekboom Bush Camp

Immersed in the bush, solar-powered and eco-conscious, Spekboom Bush Camp is a place that reconnects you with nature, in the company of close family and friends.

Perched atop a hillside overlooking the perennial Kowie River, the camp enjoys an endless parade of birdlife, while elephant, black rhino, eland, nyala, waterbuck and baboon can often be seen along the river bank and on the broad plain below. 



The camp has 8 en-suite bedrooms, each privately positioned on platforms, with uninterrupted views over the Kowie Valley. 6 double rooms and 2 singles allow for flexibility within guest parties. The double rooms feature king-sized beds which can be split into twins on request. Single rooms have standard double beds. 2 separate open air outdoor showers add to the feeling of truly being immersed in the bush.


Living Spaces

The central living area has a comfortable lounge, a spacious dining room, a fully-stocked bar and a swimming pool. Pleasant evenings can be spent around the firepit delighting in the myriad of stars overhead that are so bright they seem within easy reach of an outstretched hand. The camp has mobile phone reception, WiFi and DSTV.


Exclusive Use

Spekboom Bush Camp is booked on an exclusive basis, offering the guest party complete privacy and flexibility whilst staying in camp. It is the ideal place for families or groups travelling together. Your safari itinerary is 100% dependant on your choice and preference.

Spekboom Bush Camp operates on solar-generated electricity with a generator to supplement power when necessary. Filtered water is supplied from a nearby borehole and sterile drinking water is provided. Hot water comes from specially designed boilers using wood from alien plants removed as part of the habitat restoration project, contributing to its incredible light footprint. 

The camp is aptly named after the prolific indigenous plant ‘Spekboom’ which grows abundantly in the area. This evergreen succulent is a key species in the fight to sequester atmospheric carbon in the Eastern Cape. It has a remarkable capacity to absorb carbon and is a major component in our habitat restoration project at Buffalo Kloof.
