"Time Camping isn’t time spent, its time invested."
ABOUT CAMP NGUNI
Camp Nguni is Bushwillow Creek’s exclusive use campsite nestled amongst the trees, overlooking a large watering hole. It’s designed to help you reconnect with nature and allow you to spend time with friends and family in a beautiful, peaceful, laid back setting.
While the bushveld campsite is surrounded by wild nature, it offers guests creature comforts such as a bathroom with hot running water, a covered kitchenette and for those hot days, a small splash pool where you can cool off, have a sundowner and enjoy the passing wildlife.
The site can accommodate 8 tents, including rooftop tents and caravans, which makes it ideal for group bookings. You are able to book individually but offer a base rate that allows you to book the entire camp even if just two people.
The base rate for Camp Nguni is R600 per night for 2 adults.
Thereafter, each additional guest is charged at R150 per person, R75 per child aged 4-12, while kids under 3 stay for free.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CAMP
"We have just spent three wonderful days at Bushwillow Creek Ranch, Venue, Camps Camp Nguni near Hoedspruit. The camping facilities were excellent and the birding was very good. We had a massive thunderstorm, but we were dry and comfortable under the shelter. We strongly recommend this camp for a secluded, restful getaway!"
- Magoebaskloof Birders’ Cottage -
"The most wonderful camping spot out in the bush with nothing to disturb you except birds and frogs! The perfect place to relax, walk, ride and braai with friends or family."
- Trish Scaife -
"We have just returned from Camp Nguni. Apart from being conveniently situated near Hoedspruit town, the private camp site is tucked away and blends into the natural surroundings. The on-site facilities include neat ablutions, cover for shade/rain and even a small splash pool. Well Done Bushwillow Creek."
