Area Info:

Situated in the heart of the South African Wildlife Tourism Hotspot, Franks Bush Camp is close enough for easy reach to most tourism destinations in the area, while still providing the authentic bush experience. The camp is situated in the Lowveld area with its warm, subtropical climate close to the town of Hoedspruit. It forms part of the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve, and several game species are present on the Reserve, including Zebra, Giraffe, Buffalo, Greater Kudu, and Spotted Hyena.  African Wild dogs are also frequently seen on the Reserve. The Reserve boasts beautiful indigenous Savanna trees like Marula, Tamboti and Buffalo Thorn, and they provide an ideal habitat for smaller mammals like bushbabies and a variety of bird species. Our Birdhide is situated next to a waterhole, and Green-backed Night Herons and Little Grebes are some of the birds that can be seen here. The calls of Fish Eagles, Fiery Nightjars, Greyheaded Bush-shrikes and Black-collared Barbets ensure that there is a continuous symphony of sound around camp. Birdwatchers don’t even have to venture out of camp to tick of a large number of the over 400 bird species found in the region.Attractions in the area includes Kruger National Park, Wildlife and Rehabilitation Centres, the Panorama Route, Hiking trails and Adventure Activities.

From Hoedspruit drive South East on the R40 towards Klaserie/Witrivier. After about 28km turn left on the Guernsey road. Pass through the Security Gate and continue along the road untill it turns into a gravel road. At the T-junction turn right. The entrance to Guernsey Private Nature Reserve will be on your left hand side. At the Security Gate follow the directions signs towards camp.
