About
Description
Woodbury Tented Camp is one of the hidden jewels of the Eastern Cape. Tucked into an embracing hillside thicket and overlooking the ancient floodplain of the Bushman’s River, the camp offers rustic and secluded ...More luxury, and an authentic African wildlife safari experience. Eight large, comfortable, en-suite tents on raised bases and with private patios provide the seclusion, tranquility and an intimacy with the bush that you would expect on a visit to Amakhala Game Reserve. Each tent has twin or double beds - at your request. Camp life is centered around the stone, thatch and canvas main dining and lounge area, with its expansive deck overlooking the Woodbury plain and waterhole. A wide variety of game species such as zebra, giraffe, buffalo, eland, rhino and elephant fill the passing parade while fish eagles soar overhead, their hauntingly evocative cry echoing across the valley. Soak up the sun while lazing on a recliner next to the pool; sip a refreshing drink or enjoy tea and delicious, freshly baked cakes, before venturing out into the reserve on your next expedition.
