Somabula Nature Reserve Campsite

Just outside Pretoria, and one hour from Johannesburg, is the Somabula Nature Reserve. In this peaceful valley, you can choose to camp or stay the night in a chalet or Ox Wagon. From here, the city is right around the corner, but you can stay the night in the peace and quiet of the nature reserve with wild animals.

All accommodations are far enough apart and offer shade and privacy. Both the Ox Wagons and chalets are self-catering. You have a kitchen and kitchenware available to you, so you can prepare whatever you want. The chalets feature their own bathrooms and the Ox Wagons and camping pitches have a shared toilet block with hot and cold water.

The surroundings of the Somabula Nature Reserve are great for hiking and visiting a number of traditional villages.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
