We set the bar high for our first camp outside of the Western Cape as AfriCamps at Mackers is magnificently set on the river bank of the Sabie River. Our luxury boutique glamping tents are all facing the river just a few meters from the streaming water and are surrounded by lush green grass and indigenous forest. The camp is just a few minutes’ drive from Hazyview, a small farming town that is famous for its banana, macademia and coffee industry, but even better known for it’s easy access to the Panorama route and the Kruger National Park, two of the most popular tourist attractions in South Africa.
AfriCamps at Mackers is the perfect place to relax and explore when looking to spend some time in the Mpumalanga bush. Hear the nearby wild animals at night from the comfort of your luxury tent or walk a few meters over the soft grass to dip your toes into the river right in front of you. Spend some time in your own backyard taking a swim in the large swimming pool or taking a beautiful hike from your tent to admire the breath-taking scenery of waterfalls and wild rapids further up the river.
The camp is perfectly positioned to spend a few days exploring the area and visiting the many attractions in both directions of you. You could spend a day or two in the Kruger National Park spotting the Big 5 or driving along the Panoramic Route experiencing the breath-taking scenery and wonder of Gods Window, 3 Rondavels and Bourkes Luck potholes. Your host, owner Ryan will gladly offer tours for both routes.
