Self-catering Safari Camps

Perfect for groups or families looking for a relaxed, private environment in the bush where they can kick back in comfort and plan their own dining style and safari activities. This is a tailor-made experience where Brett Horley Safaris can arrange a private chef and private guide to offer their expertise and adapt to guests’ individual requirements. This way, the safari activities run at your own pace, and dietary choices can be easily catered for.

The Greater Kruger Park has some sublime self-catering options varying from casual and rustic, to indulgent and luxurious. A very popular destination and style of safari for South Africans who look to escape to the bush during the school holidays for a special time with their friends and family. A self-catering safari is often the most affordable and easy-going holiday experience with personalised style, while a private chef can be booked for guests who would like to be catered for. Family fry-ups on the deck in the mornings, lazy lunches, and festive braais in the boma each night – this is what a self-catering safari is about.
