CAMP GEORGE

About Camp George

Simbavati Camp George offers a true, exclusive retreat into nature, featuring a manicured, natural garden offering an oasis of greenery amidst the khaki bushveld shades. Owing to the variety of indigenous trees in and around the camp, keen birders regularly tick off new species sightings, resident throughout the year.

At night, various owls can be heard, contributing to the unique atmosphere of the camp. The riverbed, which borders the camp on two sides, and the waterhole draw a variety of wildlife, which is clearly visible from the Camp.

Tucked away in a green oasis Simbavati Camp George stands steadfast among enormous trees and a manicured garden.

Camp George Location

Simbavati Camp George is situated in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which is a wildlife-rich concession of land adjoining the western border of the Kruger National Park.

The amalgamation of public and private land in the area forms “The Greater Kruger Park” area. There are no fences between the Klaserie and the Kruger National Park, which allows for the free movement of the animals between the Reserves.
