Honey Guide -  BIG 5 Malaria Free, Luxury Tent Safari

Honey Guide - 5 Days BIG 5 Malaria Free, Luxury Tent Safari

The camp offers breath-taking wildlife experiences, including the Big 5, rewarding bird watching, stargazing, superb cuisine and service excellence. With the five different ecosystems within one reserve, the big game viewing, rich variety of wildlife and exceptionally beautiful scenery promises an extraordinary safari holiday.

The food is a highlight and it's a communal affair, usually served outdoors at a long table, with log fires and torches to create a really authentic bush feel. Simple homemade dishes, using predominantly local produce, are plentiful and exquisitely presented. N.B. Special arrangements can be made for in-room dining or a private bush dinner.

The day starts with tea or coffee and rusks served in bed - and heralded by Honeyguide's famous dawn drumbeat - before the early morning safari drive. On your return a scrumptious breakfast follows with a choice of cereals, fruit and a traditional cooked breakfast. Lunch is a light 3-course meal, served around 2pm. Dinner comes quite late - after a sunset game drive.. It's another magnificent 3-course affair served either in the boma (fenced-in campfire) accompanied by the fascinating and seductive sounds of the African night or a buffet? in the main dining area on certain nights. Our chefs are well trained and able to cater for meal preferences. There is a well-stocked bar with an excellent wine selection, stored in a temperature-controlled cellar.

Ranger Camp offers guests’ game drives in new open game viewing vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon. Late afternoon and evening drives include sunset drinks, with views of the breath-taking Yellowwood Gorge where the road twists down the escarpment between cliffs, waterfalls and forests. Night safaris are also available on request.

Larger game frequently sighted in the reserve includes elephant, rhino, lion and hippo. In between meals and drives, use your photography skills to watch and capture through your lens the game and birdlife while relaxing by the pool or during a guided walking safari through the deep bush, accompanied by an experienced, armed ranger; it can be hot work, but it's very exciting - seeing the animals from a vehicle just doesn't seem to compare.

About Our Reviews

Since 1996 we have been working with the best tour operators in Africa. Our unique relationship with those operators ensures only people who have participated in a trip after making an enquiry for it at AfricaGuide.com can leave a review.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
