In the south-east of Swaziland, the heart of the lowveld, lies an unspoilt wilderness, haven to endangered species who roam 25 sq. miles of magnificent African bush. You will find several endangered species such as black rhino, roan " sable antelope, tsessebe, white rhino and elephant. Bird life in the camp is a special feature and smaller game such as warthog visit the camp whilst the big game, such as elephant, is kept at bay outside the camp by a three-strand electric cordon.

After a day out in the hot African bush, come back to the camp that is sited in bird-rich riverine forests and enjoy an ice-cold drink under the giant sausage tree or retire to the comfortable safari-style accommodation and sit back and enjoy real nature.

Enjoy a buffet style meal, served under the thatched dining area. Meals are high quality, tasty, wholesome and well suited to the surroundings.

Laid out along the banks of a dry river bed, is Stone Camp where the vegetation comprises of tall fig, leadwood, sausage and knobthorn trees, with a lush under-canopy giving it a year-round subtropical appearance. The camp is comfortable, quiet and relaxing and a welcome retreat after a day out in the burning sun.

All twelve units are laid out individually in the riverine forest overlooking the dry riverbed, linked by central and branch pathways surfaced with riversand and lit at night by paraffin lanterns as the camp has no electricity. Each unit is totally private due to the thick vegetation, though some units are close enough together for use as an extended family unit.
