Misava Safari Camp – a unique bushveld experience at the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve

misava safari camp

Misava Safari Camp is located in a remote and picturesque area of the Greater Kruger National Park.  The area is known for its magnificent African bushveld and is home to the amazing wildlife that is unique to Africa.

Misava Safari Camp is part of the 5-Star Klaserie Drift Safari Camps experience. The accommodation and facilities are modern and luxurious but great care has been taken to integrate them into the environment.

This wonderful link between nature and the camp site is what makes Misava Safari Camp so special.  The sights, sounds and smells of the African bush permeate the camp and make for a very special experience.

If you love the outdoors, you will certainly fall in love with this suburb safari experience.

Misava Safari Camp boasts amazing facilities (take a 360˚ tour) complemented by excellent hospitality. It’s a great destination for creating memories!

Accommodation at Misava Safari Camp

There are four elegant garden-view rooms and two opulent villas overlooking the serene Klaserie River from which to choose. Each suite has its own private deck.

As the name suggests, the two Misava River View villas boast majestic views of the river below. These spacious villas come with King-size beds but can be fitted with twin beds and an additional bed for families or groups. Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, full en-suite bathrooms, as well as tea/coffee facilities.

There are four Misava Garden View suites that feature private decks overlooking the lodge gardens. These pay homage to the original camp rondavels, but with modern luxuries. Each suite can be arranged as a Twin or King room and there are inter-connecting suites that are perfect for families or groups. Amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, full en-suite bathrooms, as well as tea/coffee facilities.

Facilities at Misava Safari Camp

The facilities at Misava Safari Camp are comprehensive.  Perhaps the main feature of the lodge is the wooden viewing deck – complete with infinity pool, loungers and dining area and offer panoramic views of the surrounding African bush and the animal watering hole below.

There is also a stylish open-air bar where you can enjoy an exclusive selection of South African wines and cocktails while enjoying the sunsets. It’s also the perfect venue for gathering around an open-fire under a starlit night sky!

The Main Lodge is home to the lounge and shop. The lounge is spacious, airy and filled with deep, comfortable sofas.

Dining is an experience at Misava.  The meals are an eclectic mix of African and contemporary cuisine and is served at their indoor dining area or at any of their two outdoor dining decks.

A non-intrusive electric fence surrounds the camp site keeping out the larger animals without detracting from the view.

Activities at Klaserie Private Game Reserve

The Klaserie Private Game Reserve has a vast selection of activities for both the young and the old. Venture deep into nature on an exciting game drive or walking safari.  Excursions into the bush take place early in the morning or in the late afternoon to avoid the heat of the day and also to offer the best game viewing experiences.

Their Walking Safari, Family Safaris, Private Guided Safari, Photographic Safari, Yoga & Wellness Safari and Birding Safari packages are known for providing unique bush experiences.

Not venturing out? You can book an amazing his and hers massage or other treatments at the beautiful spa – surrounded, of course, by the beautiful African bush.

Children have also not been forgotten. There are several fun-filled kids’ activities to help them discover the bush.

Reviews from previous Misava Safari Camp guests

“Hard to describe how lovely the Misava Camp is – photos really can’t do it justice. The property itself is beautiful, with stunning views of the reserve. The room we stayed in (overlooking the river) was stunning, as were the main buildings of the camp. The staff are all incredibly hospitable and accommodating, and the camp guide, Monika, was amazing. Would highly recommend Klaserie in general (there are very few camps so it truly feels like you’re on a private reserve), and Misava specifically for safari!” wrote Pat E on their TripAdvisor page.

ptiema432692 added; “We are so glad we choose Misava! Our only regret is staying for only one day. We cannot praise the service enough. Everyone one there made us feel comfortable and at home. The staff really are the stars here! Our game drives were excellent. We were able to see a whole family of lions and their cubs up close. The only thing that was a bit confusing was the location. It was hard to find the address online and the one we found wasn’t correct. So make sure you get the directions from the hotel before.”

“I sent an email asking for help asking my girlfriend to marry me and they were very helpful and kind! They moved us to a better room at Misava and helped me with the whole marriage proposal without my fiancée realizing it. The order was at sunset with a beautiful view. Then, they organized a romantic dinner in our room. I have no words to thank you for everything you have given us. Thank you Klaserie Safari team,” said Igor Hide Oshita.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
