Welcome to the Extraordinary Saseka Tented Camp
Located along a curve of the seasonal Monwana River, Saseka Tented Camp stands out as a highly coveted luxury safari retreat in the Greater Kruger Park region. True to its name, 'Saseka' – meaning 'beautiful' in the local Tsonga language – encapsulates the essence of this destination. From the charming tented suites to the laid-back atmosphere, the culinary experience, and the personalised service, everything resonates with beauty.
Crafted by the renowned design duo Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the camp is a captivating blend of classic South African safari charm and cutting-edge 21st-century design. Thornybush's dedication to community engagement, sustainable enterprises and the preservation of biodiversity aligns seamlessly with the aspiration to emerge as genuine custodians of nature.
Welcome to South Africa!
Celebrating Sustainability and a Sense of Community at Thornybush
Thornybush's unwavering commitment to sustainability and conservation mirrors the evolving landscape of travel towards conscientious and impactful experiences. A pivotal moment in their journey occurred in 2005 with the establishment of Thornybush Community, a registered non-profit organisation aimed at empowering and uplifting neighbouring communities like Uthla, Dixie and Acornhoek. Recognising the significance of collaborative efforts with local residents, Thornybush Community became the cornerstone for holistic conservation and community sustainability.
During your stay, you’ll witness how their initiatives span diverse sectors, embodying a comprehensive approach to safeguarding the environment. One noteworthy project is the recently launched Magoveni Bee-Hive, a venture that not only bolsters the local economy but also nurtures biodiversity.
Thornybush is an integral part of extensive conservation programs and initiatives that encompass habitat restoration, protection of endangered species and the safeguarding of flora. In doing so, it showcases a symbiotic relationship between luxury and nature, where comprehensive conservation efforts underscore the commitment to maintaining the ecological balance of this unique environment.
