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 private concession is where guests will enjoy game drives through rugged Lowveld terrain and along the Olifants River.
The boma is a truly South African experience, where the focus is on laughter, listening to the sounds of the wild, and watching the fire crackle into the night. Don’t be surprised if you hear the whoop of hyenas, the lion’s contact calling, and the gentle sounds of nature while you’re relaxing in your room at night.
The camp is situated in the Greater Kruger Park close to Hoedspruit in the Lowveld. Located in the Balule Private Nature Reserve, this Big Five private concession is where guests will enjoy game drives through rugged Lowveld terrain and along the Olifants River.
