Makutsi Main Camp is set on about 10 hectares of tropical and landscaped gardens that provide guests with plenty of quiet places to relax and take in the surroundings. The camp is rustic, clean and well organized, offering privacy and personal attention to each and every guest.
Nestled among indigenous trees, Makutsi offers two warm thermal mineral water pools, allowing for adventure and relaxation to be combined. This water can be enjoyed in our 33m outdoor pool, and indoor Roman Bath. This allows for a perfect way of relaxing and recharging your batteries in between the safari and excursion adventures. The same water also feed the Rondavels, and healthy mineral water pours out of your showers and taps.
As there is no boundary fence around the camp, animals are able to roam around freely, which allows guests to enjoy their own private safaris whilst walking in camp or sitting on their private terrace. Anything from monkeys to elephants come roaming through camp if they feel like it, this is their territory after all. This also means that guest security has to be taken very seriously, and we have a detailed chat with all new arrivals regarding behavior while in camp, and other rules like acceptable walking hours (7am – 17h30pm). Outside of these hours, guests are picked up and dropped of by vehicle. Awareness, common sense and respect of nature are required at all times when in camp, which increases the guests enjoyment and respect of the natural bush and its wildlife.
At Makutsi, meals are served in an open Lapa & food served is fresh and locally sourced. We have our own heard of cattle, and occasionally (seasonal) serve venison meat. Both our cattle and the game have big areas to roam in, which means the meat that we serve is lean and healthy.
Breakfast 8-9am: Buffet Breakfast with fresh seasonal fruits, cereals and muesli, egg orders as you like them, toast, coffee/tea.
Lunch 12-4pm: Lunch is not included in your package. We have a lunch menu & home made cakes (which can be ordered at breakfast time – at own cost).
Dinner 7pm: A 3-course set menu is served during dinner. Guests sit together at big tables and chat about the days happenings.
