Section 2

Our self-catering camps are ideally located in one of the most productive areas in the Northern Timbavati. A story of lions feasting on a buffalo in the campgrounds happened not too long ago. The yelps of jackals linger under a blanket of stars. The campfire signals a gathering of your tribe – a place for sacred memories.

The two daily game drives deliver thrilling wildlife encounters that are second to none. You can go bird-watching to your heart’s desire, so be sure to bring your trusty binoculars, and that tattered Robert’s bird book of yours. Look carefully in the shaded areas around the local waterhole as the wild dogs, there, they love to lay.
