The Cape Milner

Safari Plains


Camping in style doesn’t even cover it. Luxury tented suites offer that authentic bush-camping feeling but with the added benefit of sunken baths, wrap-around decks, private salas and surprise gifts for the kids. Situated in the Greater Mabula Private Game Reserve which is only a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Johannesburg, the whole family can enjoy epic safaris with fantastic wildlife. The children’s club Bush Bumbles will keep the kids entertained for ages with fun activities like kid safaris and Plaster of Paris spoor moulding. They will also be satisfied with a menu just for them with all the classics from pizza to cheesy pasta. A super babysitting service gives parents a chance to relax too.
