Little Saseka

Little Saseka, Top Destination in Kruger National Park

Find Little Sesaka in the same lodge setting as Saseka Tented Camp but this smaller, more opulent villa commands its own presence entirely as a unique and private safari accommodation option for visitors who want to explore Thornybush Private Game Reserve on their own. 

It may be ‘little’ but it is certainly not simple! It is the youngest Thornybush Collection addition and other lodges in the reserve cannot begin to compare with Little Saseka. This ‘little’ version of Saseka Tented Camp is established in a stand of tall indigenous trees overlooking the Monwana River, beside its sister camp which boasts another 9 luxurious stylish tented suites.

This villa is a tented safari suite with space for 4 adults and 2 children, the ideal family accommodation option for a wilderness holiday in the Greater Kruger National Park. There is additional space for 4 more people in another swish tent next door. 

Picture an enormous chalet with canvas walls and a canvas roof decorated in an arty design and boasting botanical murals, woven carpets, valuable antique furnishings and modern bathroom fittings. A large patio with a sunken lounge and plenty of soft sofas around the pool. 

This is a safe, eco-friendly children’s camp with lots for the kids to do between game drives and walks.  Nearby is Saseka Tented Camp with more facilities for enjoyment by Little Saseka guests too – the curio shop, the lounges and fireplaces, extensive decks and outside dining areas. 

Children will revel in the thrill of early morning game drives and bush walks to learn all the intricacies of the wilds, from the grasses and trees to the reptiles, fungi and ants that reside here. Request a transfer to the Amani Spa if you want a bit of pampering in nature – choose massages, facials, pedicures and manicures – this spa has a distinct reputation of class in travel circles. 

At Little Saseka, guests are guaranteed excellent game viewing and will remain as their private group on their own 4×4 safari vehicle. Sit and watch wildlife in the Monwana River throughout the day from your private patio and plunge pool.

Overview

Little Saseka is a separate add-on to Saseka Tented Camp and offers similar deluxe accommodation and designer décor as its sister camp. Little Saseka is a wonderful opportunity for families to get away on safari in the beauty of the Thornybush Private Game Reserve next to Kruger National Park and get their own kind of attention. 

The additional 4-man tent besides Little Saskeka allows groups to bring friends or cousins or parents to enjoy time alone in nature. Imagine a space so gracious you have to pinch yourself to see if you are in fact dreaming? This is Little Saseka.

Enter the private villa via the private deck, sunken outside lounge with soft couches and brazier, gorgeous swimming pool and plenty of deck space for private sunbathing. This is the place to stop and rewind and unwind during the day between dawn and dusk game drives. This is the place to tell stories around the campfire and learn about the millions of stars overhead.

Inside the tent, the canvas roof boasts a tasteful arty design and botanical art adorns walls and linens. Old wooden furniture pieces, antiques and quality finishes make Saseka feel like a 5-star hotel in the Kruger Park. All you can see for miles is the verdant vegetation, the beautiful Monwana River and plenty or game as it comes to drink and feed in this conserved ecosystem.

At Thornybush, the focus is on conservation, ecotourism and sustainable tourism principles so your contribution to this is just being here, in nature, with your game ranger and tracker. They will treat you to incredible sightings of the Big 5 in this 14 000-ha area of pristine land.
