Remote and passion-driven safari camps and experiences

Finding small, genuine and independent safari camps is almost becoming a thing of the past. Yet time and again, it’s the unique and passion driven safari experiences offered by these smaller, remote camps that travellers remember the most. That’s why people call them Hidden Gems. We are lucky to know 14 of them across Southern Africa that you may not have encountered before!

“A hidden gem! This lodge is beautifully designed and overlooks a waterhole that is alive with wildlife throughout the day. Food is miraculous, particular note to  our guides for arranging a full blown lion hunt with cubs on our first outing. This followed by six cheetahs.  We will return!”
– Marc Bennet, Nanzhila Lake Camp
There really is nothing worse than departing for a safari with that feeling of venturing into something wild and mysterious but arriving to realise you are simply another body filling a bed that needs to be entertained.

Our camps and lodges are all found in remote, hard to reach places which means that you have to be seriously passionate about what you are doing to offering exceptional safari experiences and that’s a hallmark of all our Hidden Gems.
