The review:

Saseka Tented Camp

Safari under Canvas where cutting-edge design balances with classic style

Luxury tented camps are few and far between in the Greater Kruger. Saseka redresses the balance with state-of-the-art tented rooms and stripped-back architectural flair, imbued throughout with idyllic African wilderness.



“All the luxurious comforts you’d expect from a lodge yet with the relaxed ambiance of sleeping under canvas, Saseka is destined to become a flagship property in the heart of the 14,000 hectare private nature reserve of Thornybush which shares a fenceless border with the Kruger."

Things to do

Thornybush Private Reserve has retained a true feeling of wilderness, is home to phenomenal wildlife and offers some of the purest safari in South Africa. Days are dominated by exquisitely orchestrated safari activities – exploring with deeply experienced guides from this idyllic bend on the Monwana Rover.


Just nine suites are dotted in the dappled shade around the main area, each looking out over the Monwana River.

Huge tented suites with fresh botanical prints, sweeping floaty drapes and box-fresh linens make the rooms a sanctuary. The bathrooms continue the effortless sense of calm and space with freestanding baths, vast deluge showers and zingy natural soaps.

Food & Drink

Expect a dining experience that starts at dawn and belies your location deep in the savannah. South Africa has spearheaded a culinary revolution and is rightly famed for its crisp wines and world-leading cuisine.  Meals are inspired by traditional recipes but with a signature twist to each dish. The freshest vegetables from the kitchen garden complement delectable meat and fish dishes. Lighter bites are served through the heat of the day with indulgent breakfasts and dinners served under the stars.

What Stands Out

Saseka has managed to combine a modern aesthetic and contemporary design with a classic tented camp in a truly idyllic safari location.

Best For

Best suited to couples who appreciate an unrushed safari experience with attention to design detail who will get the most out of the camp’s serene ambience.


The Verdict

A fresh approach to safari lodging that successfully combines elegance and style through its interiors and excellent Big Five safari in the Thornybush Private Reserve.
