N & NW Province & Mpumalanga, South Africa
Three camps, a few kilometres apart, are situated on the
banks of the Makhutswi river, each offering 6 fantasy mud, stone
and thatch huts. It's pure bliss wallowing in the privacy of
Makalali’s huge bedrooms. The décor is womb-like in
its darkness and envelops you in a blanket of comfort. Candles and
incense create moods to entrance you.
Everything is handcrafted - even the taps. The deep claw-footed bath is separated from the bedroom by a large metal screen with cut-out shapes of animals. Tribal masks, Kente clothes and Bushman murals adorn the walls. Attention to detail and quality makes you look, then look again. Indigenous materials have been used everywhere.
Each suite, perched high on stilts to protect you from marauding wildlife, has a fireplace, a wooden veranda and an open-air sala for your siesta and game viewing. Hairdryers, luxury toiletries in exquisite glass bottles, ethnic robes, built-in electric blankets, piles of soft towels, and insect repellent are provided for guests’ convenience. And for nature lovers, each has a cool outdoor shower made of red mud and mosaic.
