At Imagine Africa Luxury Tented Camp, one can experience all the comfort and simplicity of contemporary living whilst at the same time feel completely immersed in the African wilderness.
Nestled next to the welcoming reception area, a generous infinity pool offers a picturesque view of a nearby watering hole, a haven for many an elephant on a scorching day. An iconic Marula and surrounding flora are always host to a wide variety of delightful birding specimens, and one cannot but become engrossed in the cacophony of music the African bush has to offer. In the distance one can easily discern the vistas of the northern Drakensburg Mountains, offering remarkable opportunities for prospective photographers particularly at sunset.
We are unaffected by the Eskom (our local power utility service provider) load shedding as our generator takes up the load and powers the entire Lodge including entertainment area and all rooms, meaning you can enjoy a complete and fully operational experience using all our facilities, even Wifi.
Opening up to the bamboo deck, a rustic, yet seemingly familiar bar welcomes you and give much comfort to the imagination. A traditional wood finish amidst an ancient Leadwood offer much for the thirsty, and many a hearty conversation if so desired.
Complementing the luxury tents and adjoining walkways, one is but a few steps away from a seamless transition to the main lodge, and what it promises to deliver.
Sprawling under a professionally-crafted African thatch roof, a contemporary finish is complemented by hand-crafted African decor. An ambience of home is achieved by numerous comfortable seating areas for prospective book-lovers, where views of the surrounding serenity and artisanship leave little to one’s imagination. A central coffee station and freshly baked traditional rusks provide the perfect companion to an exciting early start if one so desires, with the surrounding wildlife and landscape delivering serenity as day breaks.
A traditional “boma”, or dining area, adjoins the reception area and welcomes one to a hearty central fire, where one can relax with a drink under the African sky very amiably after an afternoon safari. In the evening the light allows for breathtaking views of the Naledi meaning “stars” – in Sotho-Tswana, and acoustics of surrounding African wilderness create a perfect ambience which leaves much to the imagination as to what could be but a short safari away. This all seamlessly blends in with the main lodge through a rustic yet elegant wooden finish, and one immediately feels familiar and at home.
Let’s not forget about our Curio Shop conveniently situated at the entrance of our main lodge supporting many local conservation projects such as Down to the Wire, Rhino Revolution & Pangolins, Hazel’s Harvest – Sausage Tree Healing Creams, Godding and Godding, Proudly South African made wire and bead work as well as our own selection of clothing and accessories for Imagine Africa!
