       Podica Bush Camp

    Palala River Cottages - Self-Catering Lodges

    Podica Bush Camp consists of three traditional rondawels, each with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, outdoor shower and veranda. Podica is located about 500 metres upstream from Kingfisher Lodge on the opposite bank of the river. Set in riverine bush, Podica is right ‘in the bush’ and wildlife often wanders through the camp. There is a small hide set in the bush behind the camp and the area around the river is excellent for birding. Each rondawel benefits from a hammock and private outdoor braai area. The camp can be booked out by a private family or party or each rondawel can be booked separately. Guests can arrange guided game drives and bush walks or enjoy self drive game viewing in the reserve. Massages can also be arranged and enjoyed in the privacy of the rondawels.
