Koro Island Camp
Rolling back the years to vintage Botswana!
Koro Island Camp, is a Stanley-esque like hide-away, ideal for explorer orientated travellers, 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 Spa sala at River Camp for some pampering can be arranged. Island Camp is off the grid completely and runs on gas and paraffin … rolling back the years to vintage Botswana!
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!
Koro is a mere 550kms from Oliver Tambo International. A high clearance vehicle can make it all the way, alternatively we will meet and transfer you from Platjan border post to the camp. From Gaborone it is 550kms and from Polokwane it is 240kms.
Angel Gabriel offers direct flights from Lanseria Johannesburg to Limpopo Valley Airport (1.5hrs) where we collect and road transfer the final 50kms. Flights are also offered to Polokwane from where we would arrange a road transfer for the remainder of the trip. Angel Gabriel also offer set weekly flights from Maun as well as Madikwe which opens up packaging options.
A special blend of opportunity, location and experience!
CENTRAL TULI: OUR OFFICE
The backdrop of our wildlife and wilderness encounters is the rugged wild-land of the vast Tuli Game Reserve. Free roaming big game, superb elephant viewing, incredible vistas, and a throbbing historical and cultural pulse makes the Tuli absolutely unique in Botswana. That’s why we operate here! Koro has become known for its phenomenal leopard sightings that go hand in hand with the research that is run from Tuli camps. The birdlife is prolific especially along the riparian forests that clearly mark the Limpopo majestic river’s journey. Beautiful secluded permanently seeping natural springs in the hills are major game and bird attraction, particularly for elephant into the dry season. The Tuli skyline is a spectacular mix of inslebergs or rocky outcrops, huge Candelabra trees and Giant Baobabs which have, in part given the area its local name “land of giants”, the other part of the name lies in the gentle giants, the elephant that wander the area making it as beguiling today as yesteryear.
