The camp is situated on an island in the Limpopo River and accessible only via a suspension bridge. A more sociable camp, its central living area is an intimate thatched lounge and dining room designed socialising, dining, reading or just lounging on one of the day beds and watching the river and wildlife. On the river itself it has a large open fire pit for cooking traditional African braais. Each tent has magnificent views over the river, giving our guests the chance to watch all the game and abundant birdlife from your own deck, completely immersed in the environment.
Although the tents are spaced in such a way to ensure privacy, the layout is also intimate as you share the main lounge building with each other. Only four tents on a private island with no other visitors. Despite this the camp is available for individual travelers or couples as well.

A short walk from your tent across the peninsula on which the camp is built brings you to Koro Island Camp’s main dining and leisure facilities.
For most of the year meals will be enjoyed around the fire. During colder conditions or rainfall we serve our meals in the spacious lounge. When in the bush, we’ll provide your food and drinks en route. We serve lunch or snacks each day and sundowners to enjoy after a day of adventuring.
Our gift shop is stocked with books, art, jewellery and interiors made locally, to remind you of your stay. *Gift shop available at Koro River Camp.
In the Lounge & Dining room, we put on intriguing lectures and presentations on Tuli’s natural and cultural history – from the Boer War to our abundant birdlife – depending on your interests. We can also arrange cooking, art and photography workshops under the guidance of renowned experts.
All food and drink during your time at the reserve is provided; including daily sundowners and afternoon tea.
Most of the meals will be on the deck overlooking the river in colder months the meals will be enjoyed around the open fire in the boma. Breakfast will be served at different times depending on the plan for the day. When out in the bush we provide you with a small start up breakfast plus coffee, tea and cakes en route. On return you will enjoy a full cooked breakfast on the deck, high tea in the afternoon and sundowners in a remarkable place in the bush to close off the day of adventure or relaxation.
We have a team of very talented chefs who will prepare all of your meals using locally sourced, organic ingredients. They will prepare your evening meals in front of you giving you the chance to interact with them and help out with food preparation.
Replenish your energy and enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast whilst sat in full view of the stunning vistas of our ancient landscape after an early morning bush hike.
As the sun sets and night draws near, enjoy a spectacular dinner prepared on a large fire by your chef, accompanied by the sights and sounds of wildlife, and extraordinary views of the Reserve.
If you have specific dietary requirements, we can cater to those. Our chefs cook a range of vegetarian, vegan and kosher dishes for our guests when booked in advance.
We want you to have wildlife encounters that leave a lasting impression and open your mind to the history and diversity of the area. Depending on your interests we’ll take you on bush walks exploring natural springs or unearthing rock art. True adventurers have the opportunity to sleep under the stars in the reserve.
Our team of experienced guides and trackers will take you on bush walks exploring natural springs, climbing high and low koppies, discovering the beauty of last wild orchids, following the tracks of predators and finding the best locations for rare photos of the Black Mamba.
Due to the diversity and size of our Reserve we can, and do make, extensive game drives. Both early in the morning allowing you to see the general game waking up and the predators prepare for sleep or late in the afternoon to see the opposite happening. But also to show you the magnificent landscape under a rising or slowly descending sun.
However for those guests who would like to see something different we make night drives as well. It will provide guests with a rare opportunity to see Elephants move in the moonlight, find Bat Eared Foxes or Aardvark or other creatures of the night; the ones you normally only hear. Maybe see Hyenas hunt. Experience wildlife in a complete different atmosphere.
We can arrange cooking, photography and art masterclasses under the guidance of renowned experts, and present lectures on history and culture of the area. The reserve is also a special place of reflection, meditation and engagement with the natural world enhanced through yoga practices at the reserve.
