Koro River Camp is, together with Koro Island Camp, the only camp in the Tuli which nestles comfortably into the shady, wild banks of the Limpopo River. There is an untamed, intangible air around the comfortable camp that provides a catalyst for breaking boundaries, personal reflection and relaxing….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- fanatics 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. Enjoy your private deck and observe African wildlife passing by…
The central living and dining facility in the main tent with views over the Limpopo River is a cool and welcoming introduction to our Camp. 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 drinks. 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 spa pavilion 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 sumptuous 3-course dinners of distinction. A curio store completes the layout.
Seven superbly appointed boutique canvas tented suites are constructed above ground on a wooden deck and consist of a tented bedroom suite with your typical Out of Africa look and feel. You will have a s 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 toilet 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.
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!
