Once you’ve bivouacked with us, you’ll want to redefine temporary

Look out over the northernmost point of the Drakensberg while sipping a G&T in the pool at Dragon Rock; lose yourself in your thoughts and the endless bush vista under the marula tree at Marula; revel in the multi-story “treehouse” of Seringa or ponder the history of the Ga-Mashishi Mountains from the heights of Lillie.

Located on a hill called Phezulu, meaning “high point” — and it is indeed the highest point on our farm — our four luxury suites on beautifully decked platforms were each chosen for their incredible views and privacy. Each was lovingly chosen for its own particular distinguishing features and named accordingly. All were custom designed by the family that owns Bushveld Bivouac and are unique.

With every detail lovingly considered, our large, comfortable, 25m2 tents have free WIFI, king-size beds made up with glorious pure cotton linens, a ceiling fan and a dressing area complete with storage space and gorgeous custom-made gowns waiting to wrap you in indulgence and cosiness. Bathroom and swimming towels are provided. Each unit has its own private bathroom with walk in shower and magnificent live-edge vanity, own fully-equipped kitchen, plunge pool and fire pit or boma (braai grids and utensils provided).

All our units come with...

  • Fully equipped kitchens (complete with coffee plungers for those who need their morning fix)
  • Full-size upright fridge
  • Complimentary fresh coffee, an assortment of teas, sugar, creamer and rusks. 
  • Built-in two-plate gas stove
  • Fans
  • Hot and cold running water
  • Walk-in shower
  • Plunge pool 
  • Boma or fire pit
  • Braai utensils
  • One complimentary bag of firewood is provided per booking along with a small pack of fire lighters

Complimentary fresh coffee, hot chocolate, an assortment of teas, sugar, creamer and rusks comes as a standard in every room, while freshly baked pastries and freshly squeezed orange juice can be delivered to your tents for an additional fee by prior arrangement.

All our units are ‘off the grid’, meaning you’re never at the mercy of loadshedding, but if you want to avoid causing your own private brand of loadshedding, please leave all hairdryers, irons, flat irons and power tools at home!

Each tent sleeps two, either in separate single beds or in a wonderfully decadent king-size. Children under 14 (no more than 2) can be accommodated on cute camp beds in their parents’ tents for a small additional charge.

Sites are a minimum of 100 m apart, and importantly, the relative locations of each dwelling and the intervening topography between them, ensure complete line-of-sight privacy, seclusion and silence. However, they are within close enough walking distance such that all four can be booked out concurrently by large groups, and either Dragon Rock or Lillie are perfect as a central gathering point in such cases. Although super secluded, each site is linked by a discreet, solar-lit path.
