Where ?

Balule Nature Reserve - Limpopo

Balule game reserve is a protected area, part of a wildlife conservation initiative of approximately 40.000ha sharing an open border with the world renown Kruger national Park. Balule initially consisted in several separate fenced game farms. In the early 1990s, landowners decided to remove the fences separating their properties in aid of conservation in order to increase the grazing area for the local wildlife and to diversify the animal gene pool.

Part of a huge ecosystem and home to an abundance of wildlife and birdlife, Balule represents an excellent opportunity to encounter the Big 5 and a full diverse range of other indigenous wildlife – this area has it all.

Your Bush Camp

Built on an old anthill, Nambu camp – which means “river” – overlooks a winding dry riverbed, bustling waterhole and the majestic Drakensberg mountains in the distance. Nambu Camp has been part of the Drinkwater family for 4 decades and is full of charming corners and different atmospheres. The sense of hospitality of the owners as well as their staff will make you feel home from the moment you arrive. Simplicity often goes along with beauty…

Food

  • The retreat is vegetarian and freshly cooked by a local Chef.
  • Fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs are sourced from local farmers and organic when possible.
  • A metallic water bottle is provided, as we encourage you to practise self-consciousness about the use of plastic.
