Albizia Camp is a rustic bush camp on a small private game reserve near Hluhluwe, KZN. For people who love nature, there is something special about sleeping under canvas with the sounds of the African night surrounding you. If you are one of these people, then Albizia Camp is the perfect place for you to stay.

Location

Albizia Camp is located in a small private game reserve near Hluhluwe. The camp is positioned on a breezy hilltop with a view towards the west of the surrounding countryside and hills. We are approximately 15 minutes drive from Hluhluwe town and 30 minutes from Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Reserve.

Wildlife

The nature reserve has many species of wildlife including giraffes, wildebeest, impalas, zebras, hippos and leopards. The camp is unfenced, so there is a chance to encounter the wildlife inside the camp. The zebras are quite used to people and often come into the campsite. There is a self-guided trail which can be walked during daylight hours and a guide is available for longer guided walks. No walking outside the camp is permitted after dark. At night you can hear much wildlife, including bushbabies, hyaenas and occasionally even lions from across the river in Phinda.

Birdlife

The birdlife at Albizia is incredible; a true birder’s paradise. From thornveld, through savanna and into riverine areas, the reserve covers many ecosystems and consequently many different bird species can be seen including such gems as the African Finfoot. Bring your bird list and see if you can add to it.

Camp facilities

There are 8 campsites, each with own ablutions (rustic hot water shower and flushing toilet). These campsites are well spaced for privacy and are situated just a short walk from the central meeting area where there is a basic kitchen, braai facilities and dining area, as well as a communal campfire. The camp has solar lights and gas powered fridges, geysers and cooking plates. Bring your own tent, or we can set up dome tents for you with 2 beds and bedding provided. At this stage we have only 2 sites for caravans. There is no electrical power point.

Peace and Quiet

Albizia is off-grid and while we understand that electricity has its uses, we do not permit generators in the camp, nor may music be played loudly (unless we are all having a party!). There is no hunting on the property and no firearms or fireworks are permitted to be brought into the camp.

This a place to relax, soak up the sounds of the African bush and enjoy chatting around a campfire under the canopy of stars.
