Eagle Owl Camp is a luxury private self-catering camp overlooking the banks of the Machatane River located in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve. The lodge is surrounded by large indigenous Apple Leaf and Bush Willow trees, which allows for spectacular birdlife viewing. The Machatane Riverbed also acts as a bush hideaway bringing amazing animal sightings from the safety of the camp. Whether it be a family holiday or a corporate week away, Eagle Owl is an ideal place for your own private bush experience.
The 4 luxury en-suite chalets each boast their own private decks. Enjoy a fully equipped open plan kitchen, bar & lounge with a TV as well as an outside fire pit which overlooks the river. At the end of the day relax in the enclosed boma area chatting the night away with fellow guests about the day’s sightings.
