Mundulea Bush Camp

Scroll

Mundulea Bush Camp is a remote, private camp in the Mundulea Nature Reserve, set up by passionate conservationists Bruno and Kate Nebe, who established the reserve in 2001. The Camp has just four traditional safari tents with large porches and comfortable twin beds. The tents are en suite but the bathrooms are located outside with a flush toilet, shower and hand basin. Although rather basic, the tents are are equipped with a lockable storage box, wardrobe, insect spray, bottled water and a torch.

Each tent also has exclusive access to a private hide overlooking the camp’s waterhole that attracts a range of large and small mammals and birds. The main camp building is quite rustic but homely and in keeping with the traditional style of the region. Inside it has locally crafted furniture, a grand dining table built around a large tree trunk and a small seating area next to an open fire pit. There is an extensive library of natural history books relevant to the flora and fauna of the region for guests to browse.

Most activities are undertaken on foot and include natural history walks and the tracking of larger mammals. The walks not only enable guests to see the wildlife of the reserve but are also designed to be educational with insights given into ecology, local history and conservation. The walks do not always result in close up sightings of large mammals but, with such expert guiding, the smaller wildlife and ecology can be better appreciated. Larger mammals of the reserve include eland, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, hartebeest, Damara dik-dik, spotted hyena, leopard, cheetah, caracal and honey badger. The reserve affords excellent birding, and nature walks usually produce interesting sightings of reptiles and insects. With luck, one of the five reintroduced black rhino may be spotted. Although rarely seen, there is an ongoing research project into the African pangolin at the reserve.

Beautiful country with a wide range of opportunities on offer – wildlife viewing, varied scenery, culture and memorable sunsets. The colours, shapes and shadows of Deadvlei at dawn will stay with me forever. Very helpful and informative discussions with Alan Godwin before booking.  Everyone in country did their bit at the right time in the right place. I felt very well looked after. The care and attention to detail was outstanding and this helped me to relax and enjoy the experience and enabled me to begin to make new but different memories.
