4 Day Sabi Sand Safari Experience - Tydon Bush Camp

The Tydon Bush Camp is set in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve bushveld. Meals, including the wonderful dinners in the open-air boma, are heralded by blasts on a kudu horn; a summoning to delicious food.

Each day at Tydon Bush Camp will reveal exiting prospects for sightings of the magnificent fauna and flora which includes the Big Five during game drives. However, there is so much more to an African safari, other than the Big Five. A collection of smaller creatures add colour to the safari experience, and one need not leave the comfort of the camp to see massive herds of buffalo, antelope and elephant families.

About The Safari

This 4-day Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve personal safari experience is conducted by a professional guide and provides you with excellent wildlife encounters, comfortable accommodation and world class personal service. The safari operates from Tydon Bush Camp which is situated inside The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve.

Due to the fact that the 4-Day Sabi Sand Safari Package is designed for small groups, couples and individual travellers, it gives us the opportunity to give personal attention to all your needs. The tented camp accommodates only eight people; thus a very personal safari experience in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

You will discover the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which has an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park. This immense and diverse tract of land is home to the Big Five of Africa, namely lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant, and a number of other animal and bird species.

While on safari you will experience the wonders of one of the largest game reserves in Africa. You will have the opportunity to experience the wildlife and vegetation by day and at night. The 4-day Sabi Sand Safari tour gives you the opportunity to do three sunset/night drives and two early morning drives in the most sort after area in South Africa.

On the morning drive you witness the sunrise over The Kruger National Park and the animals starting to move around in search of food.

The sunset/night drives give you the opportunity to take excellent photos of the sun setting over the Drakensburg Mountain Range. The night time adds a different experience as we go searching for the predators that come out in search of their next meal, which varies from the smallest antelope to the larger Buffalo.

We are situated in the southern area of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which is one of the most popular areas in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park, with quick access to Skukuza Airport and easy access by road from Johannesburg.

Day 1

Johannesburg to Tydon Bush Camp – Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Our 4-day Sabi Sand Safari begins with pick-up from Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport or your pre-safari accommodation, Nelspruit or Skukuza Airports.

Heading towards the world-famous Greater Kruger Park in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, we leave the vibrant city of Johannesburg behind.

We travel northeast to Tydon Bush Camp, situated inside the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve in a natural bush setting.

Arriving at Tydon Bush Camp there is time to freshen up, before we venture into the bush on our first exhilarating sunset game drive in Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Sabi Sand is best known for its exceptional leopard sightings and close range wildlife encounters.

All of our game drives in Sabi Sand Game Reserve are conducted in open 4×4 safari vehicles.

After our thrilling sunset to night game drive we make our way back to the camp, arriving after dark. At the lantern-lit bush camp a campfire welcomes you to the cosy boma area.

Quench your thirst with some pre-dinner drinks around the open campfire, before tucking into a tasty dinner. The evening meal is served either in the outdoor boma under starry skies, or in the thatch-covered dining area.

Unwind beside the flickering campfire at the end of your first day on safari in Greater Kruger Reserve, or retreat to your comfortable tented-room for a peaceful night’s sleep.
