At Geiger's Camp guests can expect privacy and elegance with a hint of rustic charm, and a great sense of tranquillity. It is an opulent African adventure within the Timbavati and Umbabat Private Nature Reserve. Perched on a ridge, this hideaway boasts panoramic views of the Sharalumi River and Big Five terrain.
Geiger’s Camp was originally a traditional family house and thus maintains a homely atmosphere, beyond its luxuriousness. The walls are decorated with stunning artworks, painted by the owner, Marion Geiger-Orengo, bringing the splendour of the outdoors inside.
An exclusive hideaway built from rock and stone, Geiger’s Camp comprises four private rooms, each with its own private deck overlooking the bush. This camp is ideally suited to families or small groups of up to eight persons travelling together. Each room has been uniquely and tastefully styled by the owner, Marion Geiger-Orengo along with Cape Town interior decorator, David Strauss, bringing together an eclectic mix of furniture and décor. The camp’s main deck has a private oval infinity pool with uninterrupted views of the bush, but guests are also able to make use of the Main Camp’s facilities, which is only two kilometres away.
The rooms at Geiger’s Camp embody luxury in every sense of the word. They are spacious, well-appointed and include sophisticated finishes and furnishings, beyond what would be expected in a bushveld setting.
