Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Campfire Academy is part of the Balule Nature Reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park. Our camp is conveniently situated between two of the Kruger's most popular entrance gates, Phalaborwa Gate and Orpen Gate. We cater for nature enthusiasts who are not looking for a traditional lodge safari but who wants to learn more about nature. Being part of the Grater Kruger, Campfire Academy hosts the Big 5, plains game and all the biodiversity the Kruger has to offer. The 30 meter lookout tower in camp is just one of the attractions, affording a beautiful view of the bush and overlooking a waterhole. We offer different types of accommodation including rondawels, caravans and two bush hides. We have DStv, a swimming pool, lecture room and a curio shop. All bedding and towels are provided. We offer 2 learning experiences: - The Wildlife Learning Experience will leave you with a better understanding of animal behavior, conservation management, tracks and signs skills and much more. The 2 week, all-inclusive package, include 5 excursion which complements the knowledge you've gained. - The accredited Nature Guiding course is for the serious nature enthusiast. Over a period of 3 months you will study all aspects of nature and the practical, in the field, experiences will leave you with a life time of memories. Our trainers are all accredited and qualified lead nature guides. Additional included courses such as Nature Photography and Specialized birding will provide you with skills that will enable you to work as a professional nature guide in Southern Africa.
