The Parsons experience

As one of South Africa's most enchanting tented bushveld camps, we offer our guests an unforgettable experience. The lodge consists of 4 classic and luxurious tents, combining comfort and beautiful décor with African romance from a bygone time. The rustic-chic lodge merges comfortable and stylish ambiance with the natural environment. Parsons Hilltop Safari Camp is an unfenced camp; all the animals in the Greater Kruger Park can roam free around the camp. We have two waterholes that are filled up daily and that are lit at night. Here, the animals often come to drink and you are able to capture this spectacular viewing from your own private veranda.

Our main lodge offers a cosy sitting area and a small bush library where you can read and relax after an outing in the African savannah. We also offer a lounge deck with lounge chairs and an outdoor fire pit (boma) or you can enjoy the plunge pool with a refreshing sundowner drink. It is our aim to let you unwind and be indulged within the beauty and serenity of the wilderness of Africa.

Our safari tents

Parsons Hilltop Safari Camp offers four secluded canvas safari tents, all with their own privacy and viewing decks.

With our choice of furniture and style, we have created an atmosphere of the romance of those early safaris combined with nowadays comfort and luxe. From your private deck, you can overlook the lit-by-night waterhole, where animals often come to drink. The tents are well appointed and have a luxurious décor and en-suite bathrooms. Our choice for canvas tents ensures that you will sense the beautiful nature of Africa even in your dreams, while sleeping surrounded by the African Bush and under the African stars.

We also serve you romantic dinners on your private viewing deck or at a setup in the middle of the bush. When you go on a daytrip, we will prepare a lovely lunch bag for you on request. We cater with pleasure for vegetarians, vegans or particular diets. Just inform us upfront about your wishes.
