3 Day Sabi Sand Safari.
On this great Sabi Sand Safari package, you get a short stay with us in our luxury tented camp, situated inside Sabi Sand Game Reserve (Greater Kruger National Park). The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is situated next to the Kruger National Park and forms part of the Kruger National Park but still gives you that private feel with no general public congestion at the animal sightings.
Tydon Bush Camp is situated in the southern section of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and visitors can enter at Shaws Gate as this is the closest to us. Shaws Gate is also close to Paul Kruger Gate of the world renowned Kruger National Park.
Paul Kruger Gate is the main gate for the Kruger National Park and is situated only 45 km from the town of Hazyview. From this gate, the most popular and well known Skukuza Camp of the Kruger National Park is closest. Skukuza is also situated in the southern part of the Kruger National Park and is approximately 60 km from the southern border of the Kruger National Park. The Kruger National Park was originally founded as the Sabi Park in 1897 by Paul Kruger situated between the Crocodile and Sabie Rivers. The Kruger National Park as it stands today was founded in 1927.
The Kruger National Park and the adjoining Sabi Sand Game Reserve are well known for the famous Big Five which includes the rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard and elephant. These animals are the most sort after for tourism, but there are a large number of antelope varieties and of course the 503 species of birds. We always say people who visit us at the Kruger National Park or Sabi Sand Game Reserve who come with little expectation always see more than they can remember.
After arriving at the Shaws Gate entrance to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, your Big Five safari starts immediately, as the road to Tydon Bush Camp is full of surprises. The road winds through the African bush which is your first taste of absolute beauty.
On arriving at Tydon Bush Camp in the middle of the thick Sabi Sand bushveld one gets the feeling of a true African experience and all this in the prestigious Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve.
You enjoy three drives with us inside the Sabi Sand Game Reserve during you stay.
Your first drive is a sunset/night drive in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This drive gives you the opportunity to enjoy some daytime viewing before the beautiful sunset, as well as night viewing of the Big Five, other animals and bird species.
The most beautiful part of this drive is of course the sun setting over the prestigious Drakensburg Mountain Range. The sunsets make the best photo opportunities and on occasion one can be fortunate enough to capture the magnificent sunset with one of the Big Five animals in the background. The sky changes colour in front of you and the air over the Sabi Sand Game Reserve becomes quiet and there is a sense of total isolation and a captivating silence.
After your night drive and a dinner at the lapa under the African sky you will retire to your tent where the animal sounds will serenade you to sleep.
The next day after your restful sleep in your rustic, yet luxurious tent at Tydon Bush Camp situated in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and in close proximity to the Sand River, you will wake up to a fresh cup of coffee and head out on an early morning drive. This drive is special as you can now witness the sun rising over the Kruger National Park and the feel of all of nature awakening.
The morning drive gives you the true feel of the still and relaxing atmosphere that the animals live in. You will have time to catch all these memories on your photos and then sit back and enjoy.
After the drive, you will spend the rest of the day taking in all the African sun.
Later on this day you will once again go and witness the beauty of the sun setting and the animals heading out to hunt and feed as the evening brings relief to the end of a hot day. On this drive, it is once again our mission to show you as many animals as possible, but also to enjoy the beauty of the African bushveld.
On the sunset night drives we stop to enjoy a sundowner drink, which is a highlight as this is one of the only opportunities that you will have in life to relax between wild animals having a welcomed refreshment.
Once again, the drive in the bushveld of the exclusive Sabi sand Game Reserve ends with you retreating back to the camp fire to enjoy another traditional South African meal, after which you can head off to bed with the sounds of the animals calling.
The last day is a sad one as you will now know that this is the best place to be and Africa has captured a piece of your soul. But you will leave with all your wonderful memories of all that you have seen in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.
After a delicious full breakfast, you will depart on your journey climbing from 350m above sea level to 2000m through the Drakensburg Mountain Range, where you will see breath taking views of the mountains and valleys below. From Gods Window, you will be able to out towards The Kruger National Park in the distance and there is a belief that on a super clear day you can see the ocean in Mozambique.
This is sadly your last view of the area until you visit us again for a little longer stay, as the three day is very short amount of time. We suggest that on your next visit you should consider the four to seven-day Sabi Sand and Kruger National Park Safari which are highly recommended and obviously gives you more time to see and experience our wild and breath taking scenery.
The rest of your journey to Johannesburg takes you through the little towns of Graskop and Sabie and our country’s eastern mountain ranges commonly known as the Eastern Escarpment.
You will travel for a few hours and stop for a hearty lunch before arriving in Johannesburg.
At this stage we say goodbye to you for now hoping that one day we will meet again and be able to show you more of our small part of beautiful Africa.
