Babanago Valley

A distinct outdoor education camp in the heart of Zululand

​Main Camp is our longest running camp and has been open since 1991. Located near Babanango Valley Country House the camp has a wonderful communal feel to it, the camp consists of 13 permanent tents and two ablution facilities – it can accommodate up to 120 scholars. Main Camp has a very large lapa, which is usually used as a teachers entertainment and dinning area but can also be used for lectures, indoor games, camp concerts and rainy day activities. The camp is surrounded by big indigenous trees and is in close proximity to the Nsubeni River.
At Main (and Cottage Camp), staff are accommodated in our luxurious rooms at Babanango Valley Country House within close proximity of the camp. Although they stay in our 4 star country house staff pay the same rate as students. Bus drivers are accommodated in similar rooms.​
