For a brilliant bush break, Greens Camp in De Wagensdrift ticks all the boxes. Accessible? Yes; it is only 100km from Joburg. Beautiful? Absolutely! It is surrounded by rolling bushveld hills alive with birds and plains game, zebra, giraffe and wildebeest. Welcoming? 100%. House manager Khumbulani ‘Sabelo’ Dhladhla is the friendliest man imaginable; he will assist with your luggage, food prep and makes the most delicious pizzas! Relaxing? Of course. In fact, time stands still at Greens: ‘You feel like you’ve been away for days after a weekend, and you can face the crazy week ahead,’ say the owners.
Greens Camp – originally established by and named after the famous Green brothers, explorers of southern Africa in the 1850s – was a labour of love for its current owners, who wanted to build their ultimate escape. ‘We wanted a place in the bushveld that was close enough to Johannesburg to allow us to go as regularly as possible to escape our manic city life. We love the views, there are rolling hills and big skies and complete silence except for the most amazing birdsong. We have an abundance of birdlife at the farm and even have paradise flycatchers nesting in our courtyard every year. Giraffes come to visit and steal lemons off our now very sparse lemon tree.’
With two comfy double en-suite bedrooms and a generous bunk room that sleeps four kids, Greens Camp is perfect for family and friends, and there is plenty to do in – and near – the bushveld farm estate. Spend your days relaxing with a good book on the wide verandahs or beside the pool, or head off for bush walks or bicycle rides. Slightly further afield (a mere 10-minute drive), Dinokeng Nature Reserve offers Big Five game-viewing (choose self-drive or guided options), picnic sites, bird hides or even hot-air ballooning. Enjoy tea in the afternoon sun lounging next to the pool with a natural birdsong soundtrack. And then take a slow drive past browsing game to the top of the hill for a glorious view of the rolling hills and to watch the sun sink below the horizon, or head to one of the viewing spots for traditional sundowners. Back home for supper, you can fire up the pizza oven for a little al fresco dining under the stars or gather for a relaxing braai. One thing you are guaranteed is to wake up feeling just so rejuvenated after a tranquil night’s sleep.
We’d say the owners can certainly pride themselves on a mission accomplished: Greens Camp is the perfect weekend escape for family and friends, and we can’t wait to go back.

We had a wonderful time at Green’s. It was the perfect introduction to the bush for our little nephews (2 and 3 years old respectively). The camp was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff, particularly Sabelo, was friendly and accommodating and wonderful with the kids. The boys loved making pizza’s (a huge hit).
We enjoyed our stay at Greens Camp. Everything was so neat and and clean elegant!
