With a tracker and game ranger you set off twice daily for game drives that regularly turn up with leopard, rhino, lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and a host of plains game and birdlife.

AfriCamps at Mackers
Crazy name this one. Meet the Mackers. Ryan and Michelle opened this place in July 2018. Their dream? To have a farm. E-I-E-I-O.
No marble lobby, no crystal chandelier, this place is remote, spectacular and rocks a lot of clay. Admittedly H12 is an odd name. It’s H for the heart of your host and 12 for the number of hours on a clock, months in a year etc. Interpret however you like. It’s art, darling. And H12 Leshiba is about a bed in an art gallery in the mountains in the sky.
Garonga Safari Camp
The Big 5. Safari royalty. They’re here. Enjoying the high life on the Greater Makalali Private Nature Reserve. Makalali means ‘place of rest’ and they’re not kidding. You’ll see the word tent but forget it. These ain’t no scout tepees. These will be nights in white satin, ok it’s linen but man they look good. These are capital L for luxury.
