Khulu Bush Camp caters for a maximum of just 12 guests ensuring personal service and an enjoyable stay. It has a wonderful location overlooking an ancient dry riverbed with an active waterhole attracting a wide variety of wildlife and birdlife throughout the day. The lodge was built with escapism in mind, and the aim is to blend into the landscape whilst having minimal impact on the environment too.
There are just six bespoke thatched safari suites each built on a raised platform. Each suite has an indoor and outdoor shower and a balcony for game viewing. Inside the design and decor is modern contemporary with twin or king size beds and individual tea and coffee making facilities. Khulu’s main area is thatched and open to the front. It has a well-stocked bar, dining area and comfy seating and there is a plunge pool located on the deck of the main area, along with a fire pit, an area for convivial chat and night caps.
Khulu Bush Camp offers guests the opportunity to go on guided game drives on the private concession and also in Hwange National Park. You can enjoy half day and full day game drives and night drives. Visits to the Painted Dog Conservation Centre can also be arranged.
