Koro Island Camp offers an authentic safari experience, and it is ideal for explorer-orientated travellers. Here one feels close to the old ancient landscape, the flora and fauna, and the fresh breeze of the Limpopo River. Koro Island Camp is ideal for explorer orientated travelers, and consists of 4 en-suite Meru tents and a tented lounge facility. Located on an island in the Limpopo River and accessible only via a suspension bridge, the camp is a perfect base for small private groups of safari enthusiasts. Self or fully catered options are available.
Koro Island is a stunning simple affair, and the charming setting on remote tiny Limpopo island defines our intention. A suspension bridge welcomes safari travellers into camp with sweeping views of the river. Our seasoned safari luxuries include a thatched lounge and dining area, a viewing and lounging deck overlooking the main channel of the Limpopo, and of course, the crucial open air campfire for dinner and storytelling!
The unpretentious style and layout of the camp offers a perfect invitation for small parties (max 8) of safari travellers with special interests to enjoy some down time or explore our land of giants with us. Also perfect for privately guided parties.
A visit to the Massage pavilion at Koro River Camp for some pampering can be arranged. Koro Island Camp is the perfect combination off minimal limited electricity and the sounds of the bush
Four en-suite Meru tents are dotted around the tiny island, each one with private views of the Limpopo. Furnished with comfortable beds, tables and clothes hangers, the tents are spacious and inviting. Each unit consists of a traditional open air bathroom out back, complete with bathtubs … simple elegance!
Conservation tourism is the core of all our operations and is very important to Albert Hartog, founder of The Africa Experience, Albert set up a foundation, TIMBO AFRIKA to fund and support numerous conservation and community projects.
At Koro, TIMBO AFRIKA funds an accredited PhD level field study, focussing on the ecology of leopards and hyenas of the Tuli. This includes the highly endangered Kalahari icon, the brown hyena. We invite our guests to participate in monitoring activities and field observations. Our deep rooted philanthropic and conservation passion has created various community development programs. A ‘bee barrier’ project is underway to help alleviate elephant conflict with local farmers, and wildlife education programs are supported at the Mathathane primary school. Visits to the village sites outside are highly recommended. All tourism profits go directly back to the foundation to be plowed back into the conservation of the area, its cultural heritage and its people
As we are aware that every traveler has its own personal preferences and budgets, we have put together a number of “Travel Suggestions”. These suggestions bring you to our Koro Camps in Tuli, Botswana and /or to Machangulo in Mozambique but along the routes to get there, we have made a number of selections of beautiful lodges and locations which are worthwhile staying. You can self drive, we can drive you, or you can even opt to use a private charter. Want to make the arrangements yourself? Or rather have that we make them? Everything is possible!
