GPS Coordinates: -24.6167611,28.5990442


Serendipity Eco Trails is situated on a private game farm Tierkloof in the Limpopo province of South Africa. It’s around 2 and a half hours from Johannesburg and the closest town is Mookgopong.

Serendipity is known for its 4X4, Enduro Two Wheeler, Mountain bike and Hiking Trails.

There is a variety of self-catering accommodation options available at Serendepity but I’ll be focussing on the bush camp.

The bush camp has three stands;

Stand 1 is the largest site with room to accommodate up to three offroad caravans, trailers or tents. Stands are around 10 – 20 meters apart.

Stand 2 is a smaller site with room for two off-road caravans, trailers or tents.

Stand 3 is also a small site. All sites have good shade throughout the day.

All sites have a scullery with basin, cold water, a light and socket for charging phones. This was not working during my stay.

Each site also has a firepit with braai (bbq) grid, I suggest you bring your own grid though as these aren’t great.

The ablutions are very basic with one open air shower and basin and two flush toilets. Water is heated with a donkey (a fire water heater) but wasn’t working very well at the time of this video.

Bundu camp is reserved for large groups and also has three stands. It wasn’t clear what the difference is between the bundu and bush camps.

There is also the river camp but I’ve excluded it from this review as there was no electricity or hot water as advertised.

The bush camp is probably fine if you’re doing the trails and are happy to rough it but in its current state, I can’t recommend it.
