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.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
