Natural Moments Bush Camp & Diving
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed at Natural Moments Bush Camp at the end of December 2013, we booked 4 nights and ended up staying only 2.

Tracey is a pleasure to deal with, a really great person. From the time we made a booking till we got there it was really awesome dealing with her. Unfortunately during our stay, the weather wasn't too good, with continuous rain for hours on end. The camp itself has a very relaxed setup, it really is a bush camp which is nestled between the tree's and makes you feel a part of nature. What was really good about it is the location as it is the furthest external camp from the entrance of the nature reserve.

The room we stayed in was a 4 sleeper with 2 X bunk beds. It really is basic backpacker style, with a communal Bathroom and toilet. The linen was washed prior to our arrival, and due to the rain it was unable to e dry in time, and had the wet smell. The mattresses were good, however there was a lot of spider webs around the frames of the Beds (Which really is unavoidable and expected due to its setting). The Toilet gets cleaned often and so do the shower's which is really great considering it is communal.

There is a shared Kitchen, with a few fridges and deep chest freezers with the usual Cutlery etc. However, this was the only issue we had there and can be improved on, the fridges at the time had a faint smell, and stains inside with fruit bugs flying around. Apart from that, our food we pre cooked to take along was eaten from some time during the evening and drinks went missing. This is caused by the other guests and was a major problem for us due to the fact that because we are Muslim, it was difficult for us to get any halaal food in the area. A suggestion would be to have the fridge compartments locked or have individual fridges which are cleaned regularly with its own key for the guests. Unfortunately this incident had impacted us all and cut our trip short.

Tracey organized the dive charters for us and gear hire at good rates, and we were really well taken care off. This was among my best dive experiences and was a great end to our trip.

I will return to Natural moments, hopefully next time the weather plays it's part and the are clean lockable fridges.

Thanks Tracy for great hospitality and a good stay

Room Tip: Choose the room with a private Bathroom and Toilet and perhaps keep a cooler bag with your food.

Every single time we go to Sodwana we stay at Natural Moments. Facilities and rooms are great. Tracy is a lovely person and I wish her all the success in the world.
I have stayed in a few different places in Sodwana and although Natural Moments is more rustic it certainly is what you looking for if you go to Sodwana.

This was my 3rd visit to Natural Moments. First two times a friend and I visited, and this time my girlfriend and I visited. Tracy manages the place and is very friendly and always willing to help. She arranges dives at discount with Sodwana Bay Lodge. The place is very basic and is what some people like for a getaway from city life. The place also has a nice vibe and camp fire area. If you want a nice camp like experience with out the tent this is the place to go.

Room Tip: ask for room away from the camp fire if you want quite
