About The Safari
The 3-Day Sabi Sand Safari Package takes you into one of Africa’s top private game reserves, The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. This reserve forms part of the Great Kruger Park as there are no fences separating them. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is situated in the southern area of the Kruger National Park on its northern border.
The Sabi Sand safari tour caters for singles, couples and small groups as the camp only accommodates 8 people at a time.
From our Tydon Bush Camp you will venture out into the African bushveld in search of one of the 520 bird species, 150 mammal species, and of course the most sort after predators which include lion, leopard, cheetah, African wild dog, serval and caracal. You will also have the opportunity to experience the abundant variety of 410 tree and shrub species.
You will have a total of three drives on an open 4X4 Land Rover searching for some of the above-mentioned fauna and flora. On the morning drive you will have an early start in order to catch the sun rising over the eastern border of the Kruger National Park. This drive gives you the opportunity to catch the animals as they begin their day in search of food. The mornings are always special as the air is still cool and fresh allowing you to soak up the peace and stillness of the African bush. Two out of the three game drives are in the afternoon extending into the early evening, giving you the opportunity to search by spotlight for predators in search of food.
Nothing beats the incredible excitement of driving around a corner and being met by one of the Big Five. The smell of the bush and the beast, the stillness or the roar will form lasting memories that will stay with you forever.
Every day in the bush is a good day!
About The Safari Camp
Tucked away in the southern part of the world-renowned Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is our exclusive Tydon Bush Camp.
The intimate Tydon Bush Camp is located inside Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which shares unfenced borders with the world-famous Kruger National Park in South Africa.
This tranquil tented safari camp is ideally situated within one of the best game viewing areas of the prestigious Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Set within the Greater Kruger National Park, our easily accessible, yet private bush camp awaits you.
This completely private bush camp features an outdoor dining boma set around a campfire, for lantern-lit evenings under the stars. There is also a thatch-roofed dining lapa for serving meals indoors. The dining lapa is a combination of brick, canvas and thatch, and includes a comfortable lounge area.
Guests can relax and enjoy the peaceful natural setting from the viewing deck, nestled in the indigenous vegetation at camp.
At Tydon Bush camp in Sabi Sand Game Reserve we ensure that you enjoy a more tranquil and undisturbed safari experience, and only allow children over the age of 16 to stay at the camp.

Each canvas tent is tucked away in the African bush on a raised wooden platform which has its own deck area, featuring a camping table and chairs for relaxing in nature.
Guests can choose between tents with a queen size bed or three-quarter size twin beds, all with en suite bathrooms fitted with a basin, toilet and shower.
