The view from this special place is absolutely sensational, right across a huge open plain, with the bush in the distance. The game rides were riveting; we saw elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, monkeys, baboons, zebra, impala, bullocks, wort hogs and even rarely seen wild pigs....More

About
Description
Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp has embraced a very natural African chic style in its decoration, blending in completely with its local environment. The camp has been constructed to blend into the local surroundings ...More and designed to leave the lowest possible carbon footprint. Complimentary wireless internet access is available in the main areas of the camp. Afternoons are spent relaxing in the camp’s large living area in between game activities. Listen out for the Puku antelope whistling to one other when there is danger in the air. When evening arrives, make your way to the central dining area for a delectable gourmet meal in the bush, or order dinner on your own private deck for a romantic night under the stars. Each of the seven safari tents has picture windows and its own viewing deck overlooking the plains where game amble across for a drink of water. Generous and comfortable, each tent has an ensuite bathroom with bath tub and shower, as well as an outdoor shower shaded by forest, all stocked with environmentally friendly products for your pure indulgence. Watch the sun rise from your double bed, elephants bathing from the comfort of your bath tub, perhaps even wild dogs making their way across the plains in pursuit of prey from your private viewing deck.
