Situated in the beautiful Makuya Reserve, in northern Limpopo, Mutale Falls Safari Camp provides safari enthusiasts a true opportunity to get away from it all and experience Africa the way the first explorers should have found it.
The safari camp is part of the African Ivory Route and offers a unique experience of the Greater Kruger National Park. The Makuya Reserve is unfenced from Kruger National Park and is home to the Big 5 and magnificent birding.
Perched on a high ridge above the Mutale River, Mutale Falls offers visitors views that will never be forgotten. It’s a great way to social distance and re-energise in the seclusion of the bushveld. Note that only 4×4 vehicles are able to navigate the roads in this remote area.
Mutale Falls Safari Camp is run by Transfrontier Parks Destinations, which runs several other incredible holiday destinations across South Africa.

Reviews from previous Mutale Falls Camp guests
“It is the perfect place to get away from the crowds, only 5 safari tents with 2 people per tent. The view from the deck of the kitchen area over the Mutale River is something special. You can sit and watch the animals in and next to the river. Take a short guided walk to the Mutale River Falls and Potholes. You can also visit the famous ‘World View’ and if you have a 4×4 the Luvuvhu Gorge. This is 1 of the African Ivory Route Camps,” wrote Johan D on their TripAdvisor page.
