About your safari camp:
The Tented Safari Camp is located in the Timabavati Game Reserve - also known as Timbavati Game Reserve. It shares a common unfenced border with the Kruger National Park allowing animals to roam free and ensuring guests to the area the opportunity to view the greatest diversity of wildlife that Africa has to offer.
The Tented Safari Camp is an intimate bush camp made from wood and canvas that accommodates just 12 guests in 6 fully serviced Safari style tents each with own private bathroom. Guests take part in walking safaris, and game drives (safaris) in open 4x4 safari vehicles. The Camp specializes wildlife walking safaris, where guests can explore the African wilderness on foot. Safari activities are conducted by professional and knowledgeable safari guides. The Camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere, and is alive with warm African hospitality.
The Tented Safari Camp offers guests an authentic safari experience, in an unfenced wilderness environment. There is no electricity - solar power, gas and candles are used. Your stay is undisturbed by modern conveniences such as television and cell phones - a true opportunity to immerse yourselves in the African wilderness.
Electronic photographic equipment can be charged from the main building.

A typical day on safari:
All walking trails are led by a professional, experienced safari guide who is armed. Each safari guide takes a maximum of 8 guests on a walking trail (with tracker). Your Kruger walking safari generally begins at dawn with a wake up call at 5h00/05h30 (ouch! – but it’s worth it). Enjoy a welcome cup of tea or coffee, and fruit and cereal before setting out.
Your safari guide will give you a thorough safety briefing before your safari walk, so that you are comfortable with the rules and safety instructions pertaining to you walking trail. Please feel free to ask questions at any time. Please do remember that you are walking in a wild environment, and it is important to listen to your guide at all times. There is ample opportunity to stop along the trail to examine interesting features of the bush, to observe animals and learn more about the African bush. Photography is allowed on the walking safari, but under the guidance of your safari guide.
Return to camp mid morning, and enjoy a hearty brunch, prepared by our safari cook. It’s then time to relax in camp, before joining us in the dining room at about 14h30 for a late lunch.
During the afternoons, depending on the animal movements in the area, your guide may suggest a game drive and short walk, followed by sundowners and a night safari game drive. Our timetable and activities during your safari are primarily determined around game viewing, so we do include both walks and game drives.
The best time to view game on your African safari, are the early hours of the morning and during the late afternoon. This is when most game is active – during the heat of the day, many animals tend to seek shade and are less active. Night game drives with a spotlight bring you in to contact with nocturnal animals such as Bush babies, Civets, Genets, African wild cats, Porcupines and so forth.
Whilst we make every effort to seek out the “Big Five” animals (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino), we focus on the whole safari environment, showing appreciation for all aspects of the wilderness – animal behaviour and habitat, trees, insect and plant life, as well as viewing all the other species of game found in the bush.
