About AVOCA Bush Camp

Avoca Private Bush Camp is an exclusive safari retreat for friends and family (children over 12) in the revered Timbavati Nature Reserve. Open to the Kruger National Park, yet occupying private land, Avoca is wild and tranquil, offering an exclusive safari experience in simple, bush camp accommodation.

This authentic camp can be booked out for exclusive use and can sleep up to 8 guests, which means an intimate and personalised safari experience awaits. 

The beauty of this private getaway spot is the lack of electricity, leaving all cooking and water heating up to gas and solar power. It is eco-friendly and idyllic, providing a peaceful spot to unwind and reconnect with the natural world. Avoca is a reformed hunting camp, now offering photographic safaris.

The Timbavati Nature Reserve is known for superb game viewing, and is also the home of some of the only wild white lions on earth. The town of Hoedspruit is about an hour’s drive away, offering a close-by refueling station with a wide variety of outdoor activities on offer.
