Description

Avoca Private Bush Camp is a safari retreat for friends and family in the revered Timbavati Nature Reserve. Open to the Kruger National Park, yet occupying private land, Avoca is wild and tranquil, offering an exclusive safari experience in simple, bush camp accommodation. The beauty of this private getaway spot is the lack of electricity, leaving all cooking and water heating up to gas and solar power. It is eco-friendly and idyllic, providing a peaceful spot to unwind and reconnect with the natural world. Avoca is a reformed hunting camp, now offering photographic safaris.

This authentic camp can sleep up to 8 guests, which means an intimate and personalised safari experience awaits. Accommodation is offered in comfortable, simply styled rooms, each a little log cabin built beneath tall trees and within close proximity to the main lodge area, pool, and boma.

Accommodation is basic and comfortable, and each log cabin contains 2 single beds or a double bed and its own bathroom. The cabins have green, tiled roofs and old fashioned, farm-style windows, which are finished with bug screens. Every cabin has a wooden deck, offering a good spot from which to sit and enjoy the surrounding birdsong with a good book in hand.

The camp has been built among a tangle of tall trees, forest-like in summer, and full of birds. The setup of the cabins ensures a certain level of privacy, but the accommodation is designed to create an intimate, group getaway experience.

The main camp area at Avoca is under high thatched ceilings, and houses the bar and lounge area. This communal relaxation area has a fantastic and authentic safari feel; and this is where guests will spend their evenings dining. There is a plunge pool, offering respite from the summer heat, and a boma for evenings around the campfire. The camp also has a perimeter fence, ensuring safety from the wild at all times.

The little kitchen is simple, providing all the essentials such as a gas fridge, stove, and oven. All crockery, cutlery, and cookware is provided, but electrical luxuries such as a toaster and microwave are absent. There is an indoor lounge area, which is tiled and cool in the summer, but with a fireplace, which is very useful in winter. There is a classic bar counter, and behind that is a wooden partition, which leads onto the wooden deck kitted out with wicker furniture and a dining table.

The Timbavati Nature Reserve is known for superb game viewing, and is also the home of some of the only wild white lions on earth. The town of Hoedspruit is about an hour’s drive away, offering a close-by refueling station with a wide variety of outdoor activities on offer.
