Koro River Camp
Luxury Tented Camp on the banks of the Limpopo River, Tuli Game Reserve, Botswana
Koro River Camp is one of the only two camps in the Tuli which nestles comfortably into the shady, wild banks of the Limpopo River. There is an untamed, intangible air around the comfortable camp, which gives it a unique feel. The Tuli Game Reserve extends some 350kms along the Limpopo River, The Koro Concession is 15,000 hectares within this large reserve.
Koro River Camp is perched on the most stunning shady and undisturbed bank of the Limpopo River in a remote enclave of our vast and rugged Tuli concession in Botswana. The layout, facilities, location and the attention to personalised service offers an ideal secluded breakaway for families, solo safari-fanatics or group travellers. With only 7 large tented master bedroom suites and maximum occupancy of 18 people, Koro River Camp is an undiscovered gem in Botswana’s safari circuit. Enjoy your private deck and observe African wildlife passing by…
A tented bar and indoor lounge are the service hub, alongside a shady dining deck and sunken sitting area. Meals can be prepared in the open air boma around the campfire, also an ideal venue for after dinner tales and glass of wine, to be sure.
Seven superbly appointed boutique tented Suites are constructed above ground on the river and consist of a tented bedroom suite, a separate bathroom suite with shower and bath, an open-air shower and a private plunge pool. The family Suite can accommodate 6 people and consists of a master bedroom suite as well as two separate bedrooms and a separate open-air toilet and shower.
Koro River Camp is the perfect family, multigenerational, group or quiet private getaway setting.
Koro strives to be different with each wilderness or wildlife encounter tailored to guest requirements. Although we live and breathe big game, we focus away from conventional commercial game viewing by focusing on our vision of a complete African safari and immersive experience. Our safari arm, led by well-known wilderness guide of 32 years, Alan McSmith, arranges an extensive selection of tailor-made adventures of distinction throughout Southern Africa, with a special brand of awareness, leaving all who experience touched and maybe forever changed!
Along with the Timbo Afrika Foundation an accredited PhD level field study, focusing on the ecology of leopards and hyenas of the Tuli has been established. The study focusses on the inter-relationships between these large predators, especially the iconic endangered brown hyena. Guests are encouraged to participate in research excursions to monitor camera-traps, den sites or animal identification.
An ancient landscape, the hidden treasures are numerous, from natural springs, an oasis in the winter months making them such productive game viewing spots, to some exceptional San rock art that makes for a very worthwhile half day trip. This excursion also helps the community maintain this heritage site, making it a very valuable addition to our activities.
Koro River Camp is all about the people, both the staff and the guests. Koro River Camp understands that everyone wants to feel good and to this end our service is discreet, professional and heartfelt!
The scenery in the area is magnificent, from giants in the form of ancient baobabs and herds of elephant, to koppies, stone age settlements and rolling rugged wild land. From an inviting communal deck overlooking the majestic Limpopo to the private space of each master suite, a shaded plunge pool and luxurious cool and tasteful décor....it invites you to quieten yourself and to re-soul…
