The setting is perfect; quiet, secluded, nestled along the banks of the Msuthlu Riverbed in the shade of ancient riverine trees with a history to tell. An idyllic hideaway with just 6 luxury suites, it is the embodiment of intimacy and privacy. This is Little Bush Camp, a gem of a lodge, the smallest in the Sabi Sabi collection. Here nature has been seamlessly integrated into the décor and design, with the illusion of the outdoors being part of the indoors a feature throughout. Nature calls through the open walls in the lounge, dining and bars areas while in the suites, the luxurious indoors flows to the exclusive privacy of the suite decks where you have the option of whiling away time soaking in the soothing waters of your private jacuzzi or lazing on the day beds listening to the sound of the bushveld that surrounds you.
With the Sabi Sabi design philosophy reflecting Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, Little Bush Camp uses African cultures as its inspiration, and is a stunning transition between the contemporary Bush Lodge and the avant garde Earth Lodge.
There are unexpected elements that capture the eye from the moment you enter the reception area: gently glittering quartz floors, hues from a shimmering mantel clad entirely in 5 cent copper coins, a wood, glass and metal floor to ceiling curtain that stretches right up to the sweeping thatched roof above. The architecture is beautiful, offset by interesting custom made furniture and lighting. Intimate seating areas with comfortable armchairs, sofas and ottomans upholstered in natural fabrics and leather accents are an invitation to sit, relax and mingle with your fellow guests.
Superb cuisine is enjoyed in various settings around the lodge – in the indoor/outdoor dining area, under the riverine trees or even in the Msuthlu Riverbed around a crackling fire. The options are varied and delightful.
Little Bush Camp has evolved to become an authentic representation of the beauty of Africa and her people – classic and infinitely unforgettable.
