Welcome inside

Deteema Springs Camp

Inspired by a former historic picnic site, Deteema Springs camp offers an intimate safari experience. The canvas tents are positioned on raised wooden decks along the contour line of a hill and blend into the natural surroundings. Each tent affords privacy, views and complete eco-luxury comfort including an en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom, relaxation area and large private patio deck from where you can view the wildlife that comes to visit below.

Luxury double and triple safari tents

Our luxury safari tents feature en suite bedrooms with a romantic queen-sized bed that can be separated into two twin beds. The Family tents have two single beds in addition to the queen bed, catering for 2 adults and 2 small kids.

Modern en suite bathrooms

Every eco-luxury tent has an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a basin vanity, an indoor shower, flush toilets and locally sourced bath products.

Elevated decks

The luxury safari tents in this camp are built on elevated wooden decks which raise the tents and pathways off the ground and provide great viewing platforms to enjoy the views and wildlife around the camp

Watch the wildlife pass your tent

The private patio area in front of your tent provides the perfect viewing spot from which to watch the African bush unfold in front of you.

Comfortable beds with superior linen

A good bed is essential. We dress our premium quality mattresses in breathable natural fabrics to make sure that your every night is a good night.

Our room design philosophy

A pleasing balance between style, comfort and environment

We design each room to maximise privacy and optimise views of the land and we take our decor inspiration from a traditional African safari in terms of the fabrics, texture and hues that we use. We pair this feeling of opulence with consideration for the environment, which is why we don’t have any permanent structural fixtures and rely on solar energy, forgoing energy-heavy appliances such as shavers, air-conditioning and hairdryers.

  • Electric lights, fans and charging stations
  • International 220v plug points
  • Western flushing toilet

Testimonials

Staying in a luxury safari tent

Staying in a safari tent immerses you into the wilds without compromising on the comfort and safety of a luxury room. Your ears will tune into the light rustlings of leaves or the distant roar of the mighty king of the veld. The wind gently catches and snaps the canvas and the air is alive with scented bushveld air. Being this close to nature evokes feelings of oneness and belonging. Africa is the birthplace of humankind, and a visit to Machaba Safaris feels like coming home.
