Saseka Tented Camp
The newest camp in the Thornybush reserve has such an exclusive setting that it was once saved for special occasions. Saseka’s camp is as beautiful as its setting; it blends innovative design and traditional safari style to embrace indoor/outdoor living and keep you feeling connected to the surrounding natural environment.
The communal area has a log burner, cosy corners for lounging and a large, tiered deck with views of the riverbed. A striking feature is the roof, which mimics the dappled sunlight of a tree canopy. This is the perfect spot to gather together after your game drives and swap safari stories.
Nine plush tented suites are perched above the riverbed. They’re incredibly spacious and flooded with light. Glass doors open onto your private deck with plunge pool and uninterrupted views of the seasonal Monwana River. In a private corner, there’s also an outdoor shower with bush views. The tent’s billowing interior canvas has been designed exclusively for Saseka and features prints from the Pretoria National Herbarium that reflect the region’s plants. The Leadwood Villa is a great choice for families or small groups seeking a private escape - it's like staying at your own lodge. The main villa is a tented suite that sleeps two people and features a sunken outdoor lounge and a cosy fire pit. In close proximity to this tent are a collection of further tents - in total, six guests can stay in this exclusive spot.
