Saseka is the Tsonga word for beautiful, and if you’re lucky, you might even get to witness the majestic female leopard which resides in the surrounding area and goes by the same name.
Situated in an elevated position, this Thornybush tented camp flaunts sweeping views over the Monwana riverbed, which ensures a variety of African wildlife and bird sightings during your stay. Take up a seat at the bar, by the pool or perch on your private deck — you’ll be spoilt for choice in picking an area to relax and soak up your surroundings. Saseka Tented Camp has been designed in such a refreshing way, unlike your typical stone and thatch Kruger lodges.
When you’re ready for some safari activities, guided game drives and bush walks are at the top of the list. The morning and evening game drives run like clockwork led by experienced tracker-guides who know the 14 000-hectare Thornybush Game Reserve like the back of their hand. They’ll quickly track down a few of Thornybush’s most recognisable residents, whom they’ll often introduce by name.
Your evenings at Saseka Tented Camp will be well-spent by the campfire in the outdoor boma where hearty meals are served, glasses are topped up, and stories are shared. And, since you’ll be situated so close to the local town of Hoedspruit, you’ll also have the opportunity to experience a bit more than just the South African bush.
