Activities near Timbavati
  • Safari/Game drive

You’ll be able to take full advantage of the South African wilderness while staying at this lovely tented safari field camp. You’ll find some of the activities detailed below.

Early Morning Routine and Game Walk: Right after the sun rises, you’ll head to the mess tent for some coffee, tea, rusks, and hot porridge. After a warm meal, it’s off to the outdoors for a three- to four-hour bush walk, where you’ll be led by your field guide and tracker. During this incredible experience, you’ll learn how to track game and get some insight into birding and tree and plant identification. If you’re adventurous at heart, you’ll be happy to know that tracking and finding rhino and/or elephant on foot isn’t such an uncommon occurrence during this activity! Upon your return from this exciting game walk, you’ll be greeted with a hot water bush shower and a delicious brunch spread.

Siesta Time: Just after brunch, you’ll be given a perfect window of time to relax, have a nap in your tent, or simply sit back and relax in the mess tent area where you’ll find a collection of books and games. This is also a perfect time to do a bit of bird watching or tree identification with your field guide.

Late Afternoon Routine and Game Walk: During this time, you’ll be served afternoon tea and a beautiful selection of sweet and savory snacks. You’ll then take off on a short afternoon bush walk led once again by your experienced guide and tracker.

Dinner: After getting back to the safari camp, aperitifs will be served around the fire, and then you’ll be served a special bush dinner that is prepared over hot coals.
