Tsendze Rustic Camp derives its name from the Tsonga word ‘tsendzeleka’ which means ‘to ramble around as someone lost in the bush’. For the camper who feels that an authentic camping experience relies on a no-nonsense approach. The camp only lies seven kilometers from the Mopani Rest Camp.


Tsendze Rustic Rest Camp offers tent or caravan sites only, WITHOUT ELECTRICITY. Sites make use of communal ablutions and communal kitchens(electric hotplates and washing up facilities). Maximum of 6 people per site. Provide your own tent and camping equipment, caravan or motor home.
Each site is equipped with its own braai stand and rubbish bin, and one 'fresh water' tap is shared per three sites. Specific areas in the camp may be reserved upon booking, depending on availability.

Tsendze rustic campsite is managed from Mopani Camp, thus having no reception area. Guests are required to report to Mopani camp at least one hour prior to the closing of the gate for check-in, then enter Tsendze Rustic Rest Camp.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
