Or just come and chill…

Bushveld Bivouac is a stunning self-catering, fully serviced, off-the-grid bush camp on an easily accessible 300-hectare farm with a wide range of plains game. Bushveld Bivouac redefines not only the nature (pardon the pun) of glamping, but  also the meaning of ‘bivouac’, technically speaking a temporary camp without tents or cover. Whether you decide on our luxury tented camp, Retreat cottage or Chill Plek, our aim is to ensure that a stay at Bushveld Bivouac is an exceptional treat for the soul: relaxing, recharging and inspiring all at once.

So the only dimension of the technical definition that really applies at Bushveld Bivouac is the temporary nature of your stay. And even in that regard, we’ve had loads of guests who were extremely reluctant to leave!

Located halfway between Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa, the farm lies just 40 minutes from the world famous Kruger Park’s Phalaborwa gate to the north, a bit over an hour’s drive from Orpen Gate to the south; and close to numerous other extraordinary destinations. While you’re on our farm, however, it’s all about walking, mountain biking, or simply soaking up the incredible views from each site’s decks, surrounded by pristine bush and incredible birdlife — with the odd curious antelope venturing past.

And even though your stay with us may be temporary, we’re sure that you’ll be back again and again to savour the beauty and peace of this very special piece of Africa.
