We returned to this area for a second time after our wonderful time last year at Bomani Camp. Camelthorn is a new lodge opened by the same operators Matapula. The rooms were sophisticated yet still rustic, the service was good and it is such a beautiful setting around this huge tree in the middle of the boma; what was new was this fantastic underground bunker that you could take the most amazing pics of elephant coming to drink. All in all we had a great second trip and the kids just loved it!

The lodge is unique in its style and design and has as its centrepiece a huge ancient Camelthorn tree. Strategically placed to explore the remote and unspoilt south eastern portion of the park, Camelthorn provides a spectacular wilderness experience. ... more less
