Itinerary Highlights:
The Bush Camp is a highly recommended, classic African safari camp located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, which shares OPEN BORDERS (no fences and wildlife roam free) with Kruger National Park.

Essence Of Africa - enjoy the ultimate experience of true wilderness and seclusion in a camp that accommodates only 16 guests, in traditional African reed and thatch chalets with on suite bathrooms.

The Bush Camp offers an exciting, safe safari experience in Big Five territory - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino roam free in this wilderness. The area is also home to more than 40 mammal species and 350 bird species.

Experience the thrill of safari drives in open safari vehicles, guided bush walks and tracking game on foot with highly experienced rangers and trackers. You are guaranteed an adventure of a lifetime in one of Africa's unspoilt wilderness reserves.

Day 1
06:30 Pick-up from Johannesburg Airport. (Transfer services by daily shuttle – duration 5.5hrs) - private transfer and fly-in options is available on request.

13:00 Check-in
14:30 Lunch
Later this afternoon you will gather for refreshments before embarking on an open 4x4 safari drive with your game ranger and tracker. Sundowner drinks (Drinks included) are enjoyed overlooking the African bush while the sun is setting. It is also then time to stretch your legs before the spotlight is switched on searching for the glinting eyes of nocturnal animals. When you return to the camp, there is time to freshen up before a scrumptious meal awaits you.
Overnight: Bush Camp, Timbavati, Kruger National Park
Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Days 2 & 3
Safari program for the next two days:
Depart on an open 4x4 safari drive before the break of dawn; enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with a morning snack in the bush. When you return to the lodge a late breakfast will be enjoyed. You can embark on a safari walk with your game ranger before it gets to hot in the African bush. The ranger will teach you more about the fascinating trees, insects, reptiles and plants. There is time to relax around the swimming pool or in the shade in the middle of the day. In the late afternoon another open 4x4 safari drive awaits you, searching for more animals that roam the African bush. Dinner will be enjoyed when you have returned to the lodge.

Staying at the Bush Camp is a once in a lifetime experience - recommended to anyone who loves being outdoors. The Bush Camp is incredibly relaxed and easy going! The bush chalets are the right combination of rustic and comfort to enable you to fully immerse yourself in the bush veld experience.

It's well worthwhile spending a few hours at the tree house overlooking the watering hole. You can spend the night out there or just a few hours during the day. Watching zebras, giraffe, warthogs or a herd of elephants coming down for a drink

The Bush Camp is not fenced-in…. even sitting and reading a book in the bar area whilst watching the waterhole can turn into an exciting viewing. With wildlife frequently visiting you could almost not bother getting in the jeeps!

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...
