Hi there, nice to meet you!
Hluhluwe Bush Camp is owned by Peter de Wit and Trienke Lodewijk, 2 “Dutchies” who moved to South Africa 20 years ago. After living in different places all around Africa, they decided to settle down in Hluhluwe. Peter and Trienke are the co-owners of Nuarro Lodge in the north of Mozambique www.nuarro.com. They started building this Ecolodge in 2007 with local Mozambicans and officially opened up in 2009. They were the operational managers of the lodge until 2011. From a distance, they are both still very involved with the lodge.
Because of Peter his technical background, he designed a special hybrid system, which causes Nuarro to run purely on solar energy. Peter is still responsible for all the technical installations and Trienke is still doing the marketing and sales of the lodge.
Besides the lodge in Mozambique, is Peter now CEO and owner of NuRa Energy. This company is specialized in electrical solar engineering and operates in South Africa, Mozambique, and Uganda.
Trienke is nowadays very busy with the marketing of Hluhluwe Bush Camp. Besides being the owner of the camp, she is also busy with BBorange. BBorange is a tour operator who creates tailor-made holidays in Southern Africa. If she’s not busy enough already, she is also the only selling agent of the Luxetenten Glamping Tents in the whole of Africa. Interested in the tents? Have a look at www.luxetenten.com.
Of course, Trienke has a magical team gathered around her to run Hluhluwe Bush Camp:
