The Thula Thula Volunteers Academy camp is a rustic & simple but comfortable, designed especially to give you that hands on feeling of being in the bush... its about hearing the hyenas and hippos from your tent... sitting around the camp fire under the stars and sharing your stories and adventures of the day, encounters with the herd and what Thabo is up to... he is always a topic of conversation and regular visitor or rather security guard to the camp! It's about noticing and enjoying the simple gifts of the bush and sharpening your senses. Situated on a hill overlooking Mkhulu dam we enjoy the most breathtaking views that will literally make you feel the real world is very far away, just for a little while....

You can stay at the Volunteers Academy for a minimum of two nights for R1200/p which includes all your meals (excluding beverages), accommodation and a daily game drive! The camp sleeps a maximum of 8 guests and perfect for a quick get away with your friends.
