Media Release: New Tented Camp to open in Addo Elephant National Park
In less than a week, visitors to Addo Elephant National Park will be able to experience a new way of overnighting in the national park.
The Spekboom Tented Camp, which has been under construction for the past few months, is set to open on 13 December.
The tented camp consists of five fixed tents on decks with two beds each inside the Spekboom Hide in the Park’s Main Game Area.
Visitors will be able to spend the night at a tent inside the hide, giving them the unique experience of listening to the sounds of the bush and being surrounded by wildlife, away from the popular, busy Main Camp. Visitors can also check the hide’s waterhole for nocturnal wildlife.
Each tent, surrounded by pristine thicket bush, has two beds, two camp chairs, a braai unit, a table and a solar-powered light. There are communal showers and toilets as well as a wash-basin a short walk away from the tents.
Visitors staying in the tents can either bring all their own equipment or can hire a box of cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and bedding. There is no electricity available at the tents and visitors are advised to bring their own torches.
Day visitors will still be able to access the Spekboom Hide on their game drive as usual. The Tented Camp has a separate entrance gate and is fenced off from the day visitors hide area.
The Spekboom Tented Camp units are available at R500 per night per tent (valid until 31 October 2011). Equipment & bedding is available for a R200 refundable deposit.
