Bundox Explorer Camp is an eco-luxury tented camp that promotes a low-impact, immersive safari experience in the Greater Kruger Park. Located in the Balule Private Nature Reserve, this Big Five territory is where guests will enjoy both game drives and guided walking trails through rugged Lowveld terrain and along the Olifants River.
The location of the camp remains one of the camp’s greatest assets, and provides expansive views of the horizon and the Drakensberg Mountains as a backdrop, with a series of characteristic boulder koppies in the foreground. As the sun sets right behind the mountains, the view can be admired from the camp’s perfectly placed main area.
The camp boasts an intimate setting and has only a couple of staff members who run the show, from guiding to cooking and maintenance. The layout is intended to suit small groups, couples, and solo travellers who would enjoy a personal experience in close comfort with nature. This fully-catered camp can either be on a per-person basis or it can be booked out on an exclusive basis for a private group of up to eight people.

No self-drive safaris are not allowed in our private game reserve.
No, there isn’t! The Game Reserve is open to the Kruger National Park for the animals, but no road leading directly into the Kruger national park.
The wildlife of Balule Nature Reserve is impressive as it shares fenceless borders with the Kruger National Park. Safari-goers staying at the Bundox Explorer Camp can expect to spot the iconic Big Five of Africa—an unforgettable African experience in nature. Furthermore, the Olifants River that carves through the reserve attracts an abundance of wildlife seeking water. Aside from the Big Five, there are waterbucks, giraffes, an impressive hippo population, civets, honey badgers, and some of the members of the Shy Five.
For the bird watchers, the nature reserve has recorded over 250 species of birds, including numerous waders, as well as raptors such as eagles.
The best time to visit is during the dry winter months—from May to September. Generally, the dry months are ideal because the vegetation is thinner, and the animals tend to gather around the available water resources, making it great for wildlife viewing.
The Explorer Camp offers an amazing array of safari activities for any discerning traveller. With an excellent location that borders the Kruger National Park, guests staying at the camp can enjoy easy access to the flagship of South Africa. From fantastic guided game drives with expert rangers to walking safaris that provide valuable insight into the Big Five of Africa and the impressive natural surroundings, safari-goers will leave with lasting memories. All activities are strictly based on availability, weather, and other factors.
At Bundox Explorer Camp, the safari accommodation offers an authentic experience in nature and comes with modern amenities and facilities to make guests feel right at home during their stay. Four cottage-style safari tents come with an ensuite bathroom each, as well as a communal lounge and kitchen, and a dining area with an open-air fireplace and breathtaking views.
