Koro River Camp
A perfect and exclusive re-souling safari retreat!
With a timeless air of intrigue and luxury, Koro River Camp nestles comfortably into the shady, wild banks of the Limpopo River. There is an untamed, intangible air around the camp and it is this enveloping comfort that provides a catalyst for breaking boundaries, personal reflection and healing….we call it re-souling!
Koro River Camp is perched on the most stunning shady and undisturbed bank of the Limpopo River in a remote enclave of our vast and rugged Tuli concession in Botswana. The layout, facilities, location and our legendary attention to personalised service offers an ideal secluded breakaway for families, solo safari-goers or group travellers. With only 7 large tented master bedroom suites and maximum occupancy of 18 people, Koro River Camp is an undiscovered gem in Botswana’s safari circuit.
A wooden bridge overlooking a Limpopo backwater is your arrival point to our world at Koro. The central living and dining facility on the river is a cool and welcoming introduction, with views along the water and the islands opposite.
A tented bar and indoor lounge is the service hub, alongside a shady dining deck and sunken sitting area. Meals can be prepared in our open air boma and campfire, also an ideal venue for after dinner tales and glass of wine, to be sure. Wifi is available at the lounge and viewing deck.
A smaller secluded tented chill-out lounge is an inviting space to read or relax, and an open air wellness sala on the riverbank offers rejuvenating massages and facials.
‘Kgomotso’s Kitchen’, named after our veteran safari chef is the food factory in camp and produces superb meals; brunches, high teas, and sumptious 3-course dinners of distinction. A curio store and camp WC completes the layout.
Seven superbly appointed boutique canvas suites are constructed above ground on a wooden decks and consist of a tented bedroom suite, a separate bathroom suite with shower and bath, an open air shower and a private plunge pool. Our family unit (number 7) can accommodate 6 people, and consists of a master bedroom suite as well as two separate bedrooms as well as a separate open air loo and shower. All units are located on the river and offer spectacular views of the riverine and surrounding wildlife. 220 volt charging points are located in the tents.

Privacy is of the utmost consideration in making Koro the ideal safari retreat!
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.
