Plains Camp Overview

Plains Camp is a wilderness camp in the Kruger National Park that focuses primarily on walking safaris. Two highly qualified guides will share their wealth of bush knowledge with you – from the identification of animals, trees, grasses, insects and birds to the medicinal uses of plants, folklore and basic tracking and survival skills.

For something unique and a totally unrivaled wilderness experience, guests are able to walk from Plains Camp to the Sleep Outs, which are elevated wooden platforms 4 meters high where the night will be spent sleeping outdoors under the stars!

Plains Camp Rooms

Plains Camp offers 4 African explorer-style tents each with an en-suite shower that can accommodate a maximum of 8 guests. These tents combine the comforts of luxury with the nostalgic style of African explorers, the tantalising African wilderness outside waiting to be explored.

Plains Camp Activities

The walking trails are limited to eight guests who are guided by two armed rangers. The guides meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualification possible in South Africa. After an introductory brief on the “do’s” and “don’ts” of bush walking safaris, the guide will structure the trail taking into account the fitness level of the group and any special requests. Departures are before breakfast and again in the late afternoon to avoid the midday heat, with the average walk being between three and four hours. Walks may be lengthened or shortened depending on the group’s desires and fitness levels. Nothing is predictable in the bush, therefore each safari offers a potentially new experience.
Sleep Outs are highly dependent on weather conditions.
PLEASE be aware that should the weather be unfavourable on the day of the Sleep Out (heavy rain) or if there has been heavy rain in the days preceding the Sleep Out, you may have to remain at Plains Camp (due to the platforms being inaccessible).
Plains Camp strives to keep guests together during their trail, without the inconvenience of different guests arriving and departing throughout their stay. With this in mind, if the first guests to reserve their trail at Plains Camp request the Sleep Out, then all subsequent reservations will be required to participate. Should all guests not wish to participate in the Sleep Outs; there will be no Sleep Out for the duration of the trail.
