BUSH WILLOW CREEK - LAZY LAMB.png

The Lazy Lamb is our beautiful wedding venue, which has recently been upgraded to include a wonderful tented camp that overlooks the dam and Hoedspruit’s famous mountains.  The sunset views are exquisite and the vibe is rustic, warm and earthy. 

ABOUT LAZY LAMB TENTED CAMP

Lazy Lamb Tented Camp is a private self-catering camp situated in the heart of the lowveld and just a stone’s throw away from the world famous Kruger National Park.  The camp hugs around a large dam showing off Hoedspruit’s famous mountains. 
 
This private camp is perfect for family and friends and sleeps up to twelve in three beautifully decorated tents each sleeping up to four people.  
Each tent has its own private deck overlooking the dam offering and are positioned to maximize privacy.

Lazy Lamb boasts some great birding opportunities so don’t forget to bring along your binoculars and bird book.  We also have an abundance of wildlife that includes eland, sable, giraffe, wildebeest, waterbuck, zebra, kudu, nyala and impalas.  Bring your walking shoes and your bike to explore the farm with some great scenic trails.

We also offer guided bushwalks, farm tours and stargazing evenings.

There’s fishing, swimming and canoeing at the dam or you can just relax and enjoy the views or take a dip in the splash pool with a sundowner watching some of the best sunsets in the area.

Immersed into its natural surroundings it makes for an unforgettable escape for any group of friends or family.  It truly is a place not to be missed…  you may never want to leave

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE CAMP

"Stayed over for my 10yr olds birthday camp out with friends at Lazy Lamb Venue.  What an exceptional spot with beautiful views, great facilities and a nice dam for the boys to swim, canoe and fish.  Toilets, showers, little kitchen area with gas stove, bar area and tables and chairs all under a stretch tent providing shade and cover from the rain.  Peaceful and quiet.  Perfect Venue for parties of all ages, year end functions, family and friends camping, weddings and events.  Will definitely be back!"

- Kim Van Greunen -

"Camping Near Hoedspruit…not easy to find…  We visited Bushwillow Creek in early April to camp at the Lazy Lamb.  This is a wedding venue, but placing our small camper at the edge of the lake was perfect.  A Fish Eagle perched nearby, and watched us as we opened up the van.  For a change there were no other people.  There was no noise pollution.  There was no light pollution (so difficult to escape this one).  The fireflies flitting and dancing over the water reflects no air pollution either.  And the starts, absolutely beautiful.  The morning walk was filled with birdsong, with unusual sightings.  The little plunge pool solved the heat of the summer.  So, if you are like us and try to get away from our fading planet, this venue is for you.  And Lisa made it all so pleasant."

- Mr Collins -

“It feels like you have been transported into a well kept secret.  This is the perfect little spot for family and friends to wind down and enjoy some good time in nature.  The facilities are comfortable and the tents locations on the water makes it beyond magical.  We had the absolute best time celebrating my birthday as a finale to the weekend and on the Sunday  we could rent out the Venue for the whole day for our friends to join us.It was bliss, with 44 adults and kids.  I highly recommend a good swim in the dam for both young and old.  Good time spent and wonderful memories made”

“We had such an amazing weekend.  Thank you so so much. The tents are absolutely amazing! Everyone raved about it.  The kids loved every moment.  The dam, boats etc were a hit.  We even managed to catch a fish!  The smaller kids played in the pool non-stop and Zak (tractor driver) took all the small kids on a little loop.  Amazing Amazing Amazing.”
