Situated on the Parsons Nature Reserve in the Mopani region, approximately 40km north of Hoedspruit with the mighty Olifants River bordering the southern boundary of the reserve. Parsons Nature Reserve forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. This unspoiled corner of South Africa is renowned for its abundance of wildlife, mountainous scenery, indigenous forests, cascading waterfalls and diverse cultures. Ximongwe River Camp is an owner managed camp, offering comfortable accommodation and excellent service.

Other interesting (and nearby) centers include: Phalaborwa, Tzaneen, Modjadikloof and Giyani. As well as local big 5 game viewing, we offer easy access to the bordering Kruger National Park. Other attractions include: excellent bird watching, adrenalin pumping adventure activities, the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, Khamai Reptile Park, Echo Caves and Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre to name just a few.

The Phalaborwa Gate is only 44km away, enabling us to offer excursions into the Kruger National Park as a day trip or an overnight stay. Guests with their own vehicles can go on a self-drive excursion into the Kruger Park and be back in time for a boma dinner.

Ximongwe Safaris offer transfers from both Phalaborwa and East Gate Airport, Hoedspruit.
