Sayari Camp

Plains Camp is not only distinctive in its design – with only four East African Safari-style tents, but also in the way things are done.  The manner of trail is similar to those of SANParks in that it is a proper trail with walks of up to four hours allowing one to submerse ones senses in a hands on experience, not just a mid-morning stroll after breakfast. 

What sets it apart is the combination of the wealth of knowledge and experience of our highly qualified trail’s guides and unique elegance of the furnishings and treasured antiques, quality of food and service and presence of a cool plunge pool in which to enjoy a cocktail overlooking the plain between walks. 

Offered as part of the walking trail experience from Plains Camp or as an additional activity from Rhino Post Safari Lodge (by prior arrangement). Guests depart on foot from Plains Camp to the platforms arriving in the early evening (approximately one hour walk). Guests carry a lightweight rucksack containing a change of clothes. Sundowners are enjoyed on the platforms overlooking the waterhole as your dinner is cooked over an open fire. Guests sleep on individual decks that are connected by ladders and walkways to the bathrooms and main deck.

Plains Camp - Twin luxury tent (4 rooms)
African explorer-style tents with en-suite (hot running water) and all the comforts of home, plus the African Wilderness on your doorstep. Built in authentic pioneer tradition it has the serenity of a 19th century naturalists retreat, nestled in an Acacia Knobthorn thicket and overlooking the spectacular Timbitene plain and waterhole.




And if the best of both world’s is not enough – there is the added attraction of an optional night spent out under the stars at the sleepout decks under the care of a qualified guide!  We are delighted to be able to share this matchless blend of Kruger in style with our many return guests and supporters of ethical and responsible environmental tourism.

 

Sleep Outs .....A night to remember 
Offered as part of the walking trail experience from Plains Camp or as an additional activity from Rhino Post Safari Lodge (by prior arrangement).   Guests depart on foot from Plains Camp to the platforms arriving in the early evening (approximately one hour walk).   Guests carry a lightweight rucksack containing a change of clothes.   Sundowners are enjoyed on the platforms overlooking the waterhole as your dinner is cooked over an open fire.   Guests sleep on individual decks that are connected by ladders and walkways to the bathrooms and main deck.   

Sleep-Outs are entirely weather dependent.  The feasibility is affected not only by rain on the day, but also in the day or two prior as the decks are built in a very sensitive soil area.  The area cannot be serviced after heavy rains without a high level of erosion risk to the access road.  As Plains Camp is a small camp, private activities are unfortunately not available.

4 platforms with two mattresses per platform – sleeping bags and duvets are provided
Elevated communal dining area
Accommodates 8 guests per Sleep-Out
2 armed rangers per Sleep-Out
