Eco-Camp Features - Renewable Energy 

At Isambane we firmly believe in the sustainable use of the Earth’s resources. As a result, we rely on our Sun to provide all power and electricity to our camp, ensuring we run on 100% solar energy.

Purified Water 

To be as sustainable as possible we utilise on-site reverse osmosis filtration on all of our water. Not only is this extremely efficient at removing contaminants to produce clean, high-quality drinking water, but it drastically reduces our plastic usage by removing the need to buy bottled water.

Sustainable Construction 

We are proud to be able to say that no trees were removed during the construction of Isambane. We prioritise the conservation of nature, and so moulded our camp around the vegetation.

Food and Wine

Part of the Isambane experience is the cuisine and we place a great deal of emphasis on the food we serve and present to our guests. We are certain our guests will be highly impressed with what we can conjure up in the middle of the bush. Isambane can cater for any dietary requirements. All we ask is for prior notice in order for us to meet our guests wishes. ‍

Our boma area will hold early-morning, pre-game drive drinks and snacks for those wanting a wake-up coffee. Once everyone is back, lunch will be ready and waiting, served with cool drinks on the side in case the thirst has awakened. Then, after a long day out and about, it's time for our most important and special meal. Once the sun sets and the stars are shining in the night sky, open a unique bottle of South African wine, feast upon a traditional meal and enjoy the sounds of nature. There is little this feeling can compare to.

Game Drives

Situated within a Big 5 nature reserve and open to the Greater Kruger, Isambane can provide unforgettable safari experiences. Home to over 35 large mammal species, breathtaking wildlife could be just around the corner. Our drives can provide close encounters not only with the Big 5, but also Cheetah, Wild Dog and an assortment of plains game. However, we don’t only focus on the big game, as often the intricate details of nature are just as impressive. You will leave our safari with an understanding of what makes the bush ‘tick’.

Morning Drive

Departure: summer – 05h30 | winter – 06h30 Duration: ±3 hours

Wake up with the birds, enjoying a fresh cup of coffee and light snacks whilst listening to the symphony created by the rising sun. Start your adventure with the cool morning air and a great chance to see roaming predators or even our nocturnal creatures returning home. 

Afternoon Drive

Departure: summer – 16h00 | winter – 15h00 Duration: ±3 hours

As the intense heat of the mid-day sun dwindles, the animals are on the move again. Hungry and restless from sheltering in the shade, the bush once again becomes alive. Relax on a game drive as the sunlight softens, preparing to cherish a drink of your choice overlooking a magnificent African sunset. 

Other Activities

Hoedspruit is perfectly located for day drives through the Panorama Route. Points to check off your list are Graskop Gorge, Pinnacle Rock, God’s Window, Wonder View, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Three Rondavels, and Blyde River Canyon. Remarkable waterfalls to include on your itinerary are Lone Creek Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Sabie Falls, Forest Falls, Mac Mac Pools, Mac Mac Falls, Berlin Falls, and Lisbon Falls.
