Warthogs Bush Camp just outside of Magaliesburg lends itself to family gatherings, small conferences and weddings, and action-packed weekends filled with nature themed activities such as trail runs or mountain biking. Tucked away in the Magalies meander, an hours drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, Warthogs Bush Camp has 10 chalets accommodating 20 people sharing. We just built 4 new exclusive caravan sites with their own ablution facility and 5 tented campsites. The ambiance of the dining area, outside lapa and rock pool allows you to escape the buzz of city life and enter the tranquil African bushveld without too many technological distractions like televisions etc. Don’t worry, we are not completely cut off from the outside world, you can still view the Springboks rugby game in our lapa. Warthogs Bush Camp is the perfect location to break some of our city habits and to bring us back to our roots by enjoying nature at its best to truly relax.
Big 5 game drives and Spa treatments are available from our sister property, Askari Game Lodge & Spa just 2km down the road. Warthogs itself has a selection of Kudu, Blesbok, Rooihartebees and off course warthogs. Bird clubs love this venue with its dedicated walking routes and often book the entire lodge for birding weekends.
We recommend that camp exclusivity is taken by guests which opens up a world of possibilities for your weekend, as the dog breeders clubs and dog trainers can vouch for. The lodge is pet friendly for individual guests as well, by prior arrangement. Trained pets that love to explore and are used to freedom, without a leash, feels right at home. Please note that there are poisonous snakes at the lodge and both owners and their dogs enjoy the lodge at their own risk.
Just 2km down the road, our sister property Askari Lodge & Spa offers Big 5 game drives, elephant touch and feed experiences and spa pampering for Warthogs Bush Camp guests.
Warthogs Bush Camp and Askari Game Lodge are in the fortunate position to not only share ownership and management expertise, but also the know-how of the Askari Lodge wedding, conference and banqueting co-ordinators. You may therefore find that your phone calls or correspondence is answered by Askari Game Lodge’s capable team.
