When you think about an Africa Safari, what is in your mind’s eye? Do you see yourself on an open safari vehicle that puts you in position for jaw-dropping unobstructed photographs while shooting with award winning photographers who are sharing their secrets with you?  Spending time in the warm sun with a family of lions without another vehicle in sight? Do you imagine buffalo taking a leisurely mud bath only a few meters from the vehicle?  Can you feel the soft air on your skin, catch the scent of wild flowers delicately perfuming the air?  Do you see the leopard in the tree, the kudu near the bush, the wild dogs pacing through the grass? Can you imagine the zebra snorting and the giraffe towering over you to get a better look while we are on bush walks? Do you hear the lilting songs of nightjars, the whooping calls of hyenas, the rumble of elephants lulling you to dreamland after an incredible dinner?

Eagle Eye Safaris proudly offers an intimate authentic African Safari experience in a tented bush camp in a remote, undeveloped area of the Greater Kruger. Your private, elegant, comfortable unit offers a 4-poster bed (separate beds if you request them) with premium mattresses and luxury linens. Each thatch-covered meru-style tent has a permanent en-suite bathroom that includes a soaking tub, shower, flushing toilet, custom-made hammered copper sinks, and beautiful tiled accents–we’re definitely not “roughing it.”  We’ll eat scrumptious meals on the covered patio between game drives, including dinner by candlelight, then sip a cocktail around the roaring fire before retiring for the night.  This is one of the quietest camps in South Africa, where time slows and your mind calms, where nature surrounds you with a gentle touch and soothes your soul.  If you’ve ever longed for an exclusive, elegant, old-style wildlife safari with modern conveniences and comforts, yet have limited impact on the environment, this is the one for you.

Ernest and Karen will coach your photographic skills, or you can just relax and watch wildlife.  We’ll combine game drives and bush walks so that you can become part of the pace of the bush and experience the romance of Africa as though in by-gone days. You’ll go home with unparalleled memories of incredible wildlife sightings, whether in your mind’s eye or in your camera’s memory card.

Our camp is staffed by people from the local villages, some of whom have worked here for over 20 years. They are proud of the quality, personal experience they bring to you. Most of our supplies and services are purchased from local businesses. We also support the local children at the Thorndale Creche. If  you would like to visit the local communities between game drives, we can arrange tours with advance notice.

We offer only 8 spots on this personally guided safari, double occupancy, and we can accommodate solo travelers. A 15% deposit is due at time of booking. You can book securely with a credit card. We also offer complete no-worries Ground Transportation Package to help you get to the Lodge, including a night in Johannesburg, a night in Nelspruit, a tour of Chimp Eden, and a private driver to the Lodge–just ask! Day One of Safari begins with arrival at the Lodge around 13:30 in time for lunch and the evening game drive, and departure from the Lodge is around 10:30 on the last day after our morning game drive and breakfast.  The Lodge is a 3 hour drive from Nelspruit, and an 8 hour drive from Johannesburg, in the part of the Greater Kruger National Park where we can go off-road to get up close to wildlife for the best experience. We invite you to join us for the most incredible trip you’ll ever go on–an African Safari.

Prices are based on double occupancy. A single supplement is available at an additional reasonable cost; please contact us for pricing.
