Rhino Walking Safaris - Plains Camp

Plains Camp Accommodation

Plains Camp has only four luxury African explorer-style tents, all of which overlook the spectacular Timbitene plain and waterhole. The camp is built in authentic pioneer tradition and is raised on wooden decks. Stylishly decorated, camp offers the tranquillity of a 19th Century naturalist’s retreat. An Africana book collection and antique treasures are reminiscent of a by-gone era.

In keeping with the ethics of Rhino Walking Safaris “tread lightly on the land”, no trees were cut down in the construction of this camp. No concrete was used – all structures are canvas and wood. This camp was specifically designed for low energy consumption and makes use of solar power and limited generators for its power needs.

Plains Camp is the ideal base for you Walking Safari. The camp is in the middle of a 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession, where it seems the rest of the world no longer exists, and guests are ensured of superb game sightings.

A typical day at Plains Camp begins with a mug of steaming coffee and traditional homemade rusks, after which guests set out on their morning walk, following rhino tracks and elephant paths. The length of the walk depends on the interest and fitness of the guests. Returning to camp, enjoy a leisurely brunch and relax in the cool of the acacia trees, keeping an eye on the waterhole for the breeding herd of elephant that frequently come to drink. Following high tea, you set out again in the late afternoon for a walking safari or game drive and then indulge in a sunset cocktail.
