Ivory Wilderness Camp

Ivory Wilderness main area and deck


The Ivory Wilderness Camp offers just two luxury tents in a great position on the Klaserie river. Traversing is over a generous 6,000 hectare expanse of mixed woodland, riverine forest and low-lying vegetation, making game viewing varied and excellent.

Crossing the Klaserie river at Ivory Wilderness


Big Five walking trails and game drives are limited to  four participants and are conducted by the owner who grew up in the Klaserie tracking his Grandfather’s footsteps on their family farm. Warren is an expert guide and fascinating host. Sunset walks are a speciality  not often offered elsewhere.

Walking at Ivory Wilderness


Such a small group can be subtle and sensitive, enabling remarkable encounters with all sorts from elephant shrews to the majestic African elephant. Walk an African wilderness trail with the chance of encountering some of the largest, most charismatic to the smallest, most delicate creatures.

Leopard at Ivory Wilderness


The river brings waterbuck, impala, giraffe, zebra, kudu, elephant, and others to its banks by the camp on a daily basis. Hippo, rhino, and buffalo are commonly seen drinking there .


The river also attracts many water birds and waders to its banks. The birding is rich: herons, storks and kingfishers; hawks, owls and eagles; bee-eaters, larks, and bush shrikes. Bring your binoculars.


The two luxury explorer tents provide an eco-friendly, intimate experience of the bush. Both are en-suite and spacious. They are ultra-comfortable with luxurious touches and elegant décor reminiscent of old-world African travel.

Elevated wooden decks have private balconies from which to admire the view. An outdoor shower completes the experience. A lantern-lit sandy pathway connects the tents to the main area. There is an unobtrusive two-strand elephant fence around the camp. The quiet of its tranquil location is undisturbed by generators, with the camp running on gas and sunlight.

Ivory Wilderness pool at night


The main building has a large viewing deck, swimming pool, and boma. There is a guest bathroom here. An outdoor seating area, sun loungers, and dining table overlook the river and sunset.


There is a lovely boma for dinner cooked on the fire.
