More than just a safari

Staying at Parsons Hilltop will give you a wonderful holiday at a rustic-chic unfenced and authentic tented safari camp. We are situated in the Greater Kruger Area which is openly connected to the world renowned Kruger National Park, providing excellent game viewing and bird watching. For a close-to-nature experience, we have chosen canvas tents to accommodate you in. Here, your senses connect to the spectacular nature around you, still surrounded by stylish décor and indulged with highly comfortable sleeping. While you are with us, our focus is to spoil you with our hospitality, our food and our wines and let you unwind and recharge in the splendid nature of Africa.

Reconnect to nature

At Parsons, in the Balule Nature Reserve, you can find the Big Five among many species of birdlife and an extraordinary abundance of smaller wildlife.

Our guide, a highly qualified and experienced wildlife expert, will take you on safari, on foot or by open game vehicle. As the number of lodges in our reserve is restricted, we are able to enjoy animal sightings privately, undisturbed by other spectators. We will take time to explain more about details or stay longer at a sighting if you wish. In other words, we can tailor the safari experience to your interest.

The story of Parsons Hilltop

As owners of Parsons Hilltop we immediately fell in love with the little lodge on the hill when we found it in 2015. Straight away we knew that this was the place that we wanted to turn into a rustic-chic safari hospitality gem in the middle of the African Bush. All guests who we ever welcomed since we first opened our lodge have loved the hospitality, the view on the hilltop and the intimacy of the camp. Our enthusiastic and devoted team warmly welcomes you to Parsons Hilltop Safari Camp.
