Nyumbani Bush Lodge Camp

“Nyumbani is Swahili for “at home”


Eco-friendly ‘off grid’ luxury bush lodge camp.

We purposely created an eco-friendly ‘off grid’ luxury bush lodge camp where all power is provided by the glorious African sunshine via solar energy units throughout the camp, including the lighting, hot water and all facilities.  The construction includes a range of up-cycling of materials from other projects and sources.  Wherever possible, local contractors, artists and supplies have been utilised for the venture. 

The camp is set in the most magical location on the entire conservancy, in-front of the Klein Drakensberg mountains.


There are two Chalets build of brick with high thatch roofs, Ndlovu (honeymoon suite) and Bongani.  Both are luxury doubles, en-suite bathroom with toilet, shower plus outside showers.  Super king size beds (extra length) which can be separated to two 3/4 singles, built-in cupboard storage with small work desk, mosquito nets and complimentary toiletries.  Private decks with coffee table, two chairs and a hammock swing.  All to provide you with everything to enhance your rest and relaxation. 

The Chalets are serviced by a main kitchen, with open dining area, casual comfy seating and lounge bar situated in-front of the bar pool.  Evening dinners can be served privately in your Chalet, in the main open dining area, under cover in the lounge bar or at the Boma camp fire.  Additionally, at special request, private bush dining can be arranged at a special romantic spot where you dine under the stars with the game roaming free around you.

Camp Experience

The ambiance of the camp is one of a spiritual sensation, enhancing natural senses of sight, smell, taste and touch as you very quickly become at one with nature.  There are no modern trappings at the Bush Lodge camp so forget your electronic jungle and enjoy a decadent experience of bush walks, discovering the many different animals, creatures as well as trees and vegetation around you.  With especially selected picnic spots, tree look-outs, and watering pans, you will experience something very special that only nature and a big game conservancy can provide.  

Remember to bring your camera so you can capture this exceptional experience. Evenings will tailored around your desires, bush fire dining, braai’s, visiting a nearby culture village; it will be up to you, even if you just wish to dine in your chalet or spend a delightful evening around the fire hearing of the bush stories.

“Nyumbani is Swahili for ‘at home”

The name Nyumbani is Swahili for ‘at home’ and the name of this venture is derived from the Swahili words of “Nyumbani Kichaka”, meaning “home in the bush”.  Nyumbani Estate is no less than that, an experience of peace and tranquility that will make you feel relaxed and at one with nature.  We offer a welcoming, warm, and indulging experience of home comforts, in stunning safari bush.
