The background on my desktop shows a serene river flowing between red sandstone hills, a lush haven amidst the dusty savanna. This was the view from my tent at Tshulu Camp, where I was staying for a volunteer project. Every morning, I would wake up excited—despite the winter chill—to zip open my tent and admire the surroundings. HaMakuya is an...

Stayed here for 3 weeks as part of a volunteer group, UCDVO. Conditions at the camp are great - safety, cleanliness, service, food and the views are sweet. Don't even shop around for another camp / B&B because you'll miss out on a very nice experience.

I stayed here for 4 weeks as part of a volunteer programme this summer. The staff make you feel at home, the views are beautiful (be sure to be in camp for sunset as much as possible) and the safari tents on stilts are very comfortable. The homestay organised by Tshulu is another highlight. A place you will never forget...

We managed to escape the rest of the hordes of people to find ourselves in a great part of the world and it was lovley and warm still!!!!. The camp itself isclean and tidy and...

I stayed at Tshulu Camp for a couple of nights in September 2009 after my visit to northern Kruger National Park and I thought it deserves a real good recommendation on TripAdvisor. The location of Tshulu Camp is exquisite with all the rooms/tents overlooking the Mutale River. Each room has its own en suite bathroom, very comfortable beds and spacious...

I just spent a week at Tshulu camp in rural Venda and enjoyed it immensely. The diversity of trees and birdlife is truly astonishing. Set along the edge of a magnificent gorge with great views of the Mutale river, this is a nature lovers paradise. The TshiVenda people are very hospitable and friendly and the camp is well run. I...

This camp is one of the most relaxing, beautiful and soothing locations I have ever had the fortune to stay at. I was with a large group of students and staff, and we were all accomodated far beyond our expectations. The staff are heartwarmingly friendly and down to earth, and will go out of their way to ensure your stay...

The Tshulu camp is certainly off the beaten path. Deep in Venda country, you are not likely to come across many other travelers. However, for those traveling through South Africa who want a place to get away from the masses and experience a part of the fantastic biodiversity and beautiful scenery that SA holds it is the perfect place.
