How long should we stay?

In order to have the most fulfilling experience at Isambane Camp, we would recommend a minimum of 3 nights stay, enabling you to enjoy your safari in a leisurely manner. However, we also offer other offsite activities such as birding expeditions in Lekgalameetse, day trips to Kruger National Park, boat cruises along the Olifants River and panorama tours. We work alongside Lowveld Trails to provide a unique immersive walking experience, offering the best of both worlds.

What is the weather like?

The average rainfall for the year is 350mm, with most rainfall occurring during mid-summer (November – February). The rainfall generally occurs in the form of short, intense thunderstorms, which very seldom lasts longer than a few hours. The average maximum temperatures range from 24°C in July to 34°C in January with the average monthly minimum occurring in July at a temperature of 8°C.

For more information we created a page with monthly weather details.

Set within

The Greater Kruger
National Park

Taking its cue from the environment, Isambane is set apart in unspoiled bushveld surrounded by indigenous trees. In harmony with nature, you are immediately aware of a sense of calm and a restoring spirit.

Isambane is ideally located at Parsons, Balule Game Reserve within the Greater Kruger Park area, a completely off-the-beaten track private reserve that is teeming with wildlife. 

Explore untouched landscapes, diverse vegetation and the Olifants River in Big 5 country with an abundance of species.
