At Mackers we offer 3 self catering Cottages high above the forests and 10 AfriCamps luxury boutique glamping tents on the banks of the Sabie River. These two facilities are run independently and separately.
Guests at the cottages have no access to the Africamps facilities and vice-versa. Our Cottages are nestled among indigenous bush teeming with bird life on top of the hill. PLEASE NOTE: There is no swimming pool, air-conditioners or televisions at the cottages.
AfriCamps Boutique tents are on the banks of the Sabie river, reconnecting you with nature, where you will not be troubled by the daily sounds of normal life. The cottages are 1 km from the main road and Africamps is 2 km from the main road - noise is unheard of!
Apart from the variety of exciting and adrenalin-filled attractions in the area, the sights and sounds at Mackers are sure to win you over. Hear the Bush Babies and Owls at night from the comfort of your fully equipped self- catering accommodation.
We are perfectly positioned to spend at least a day in the Kruger National Park spotting the Big 5,or driving along the Panorama Route experiencing the breathtaking scenery. God’s Window, 3 Rondavels, Bourke’s Luck potholes and the Blyde River Canyon are all spectacular sights worth a visit. We will gladly arrange tours for both routes.
Mackers is located in the beautiful Sabie Valley Nature Conservancy which is home to more than 250 bird species, so remember to bring your birding book and binoculars along, listen to birdsong while enjoying a massage treatment in the privacy of your unit.
Don't feel like shopping? Let us know and we will arrange our scrumptious cook-your-own Breakfast or Braai baskets for you, delivered to your unit.
Camping doesn’t have to be a nightmare. There are plenty of ups to camping, such as open campfires, roasted marshmallows, and star gazing in your own piece of secluded paradise. But if you’re not up for the hassle of setting up your own tent and hauling everything but the kitchen sink on holiday with you, then ready-made campsites and safari tents may be more up your alley. Sites are spacious and shady!
