Our guides provide you with insightful information about the incredible plants and animals in the area, while you explore Big Five territory on foot.

The bush walk in Sabi Sand is ideal for becoming aware of the finer details of the African bush and its variety of creatures. We spend time tracking wild animals and getting to know the wildness more intimately than possible on game viewing drives.

After our exciting game walk we return to Tydon Safari Camp for a scrumptious mid-morning breakfast. Spend leisure time around the camp, take a dip in the swimming pool, or take a refreshing siesta in your tented room. A freshly prepared lunch spread is served in the thatched dining area in Tydon Safari Camp at around 14:00.

After lunch there is more leisure time before we embark on a sunset/night Sabi Sand game drive. In addition to its excellent reputation for outstanding leopard sightings, Sabi Sand Game Reserve is also known for its close-up encounters with the rest of the Big Five of Africa.

Returning to camp we find chilled beverages waiting in the boma where a campfire is already going. Share a juicy meal under the stars then sit back and take in the night sounds of the African Bush.

Day 4:

After a fresh cup of coffee or tea and a light snack, we head into the Kruger Park in search of Africa’s Big Five and any wildlife we may have missed so far.

After our rewarding morning of game spotting and great photographic opportunities in the Kruger National Park, a mid-morning brunch, complete with fresh fruit, yogurts and muffins is served at Tydon Safari Camp. Spend some time relaxing on your tent deck soaking up the peace of our natural surroundings, cool off in the swimming pool, or nap in your air-conditioned tent before lunch is served in the main dining area.

Day 5:

On the last day of our eventful 5 Day Sabi Sand and Kruger Park Safari, we say goodbye to Tydon Safari Camp, travelling via the scenic Panorama Route (excluded from Skukuza transfers), through beautiful landscapes and quaint towns, we make our way back to Johannesburg or Nelspruit taking home the wonderful memories and photos of our African wildlife adventure.

Safari Activities

Our 5 Day Kruger Park and Sabi Sand Safari takes you on four exciting game viewing drives into the Kruger National Park, two sunset/night drives and one early morning guided bush walk in the exclusive Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Well known for its close wildlife encounters and leopard sightings, the Sabi Sands Reserve is one of South Africa’s top safari destinations.

Here at Tydon African Safaris, we provide the opportunity to experience the beauty of the African wilderness as the sun rises over the plains of Africa in the morning, in the afternoon when the animals leave the shade of the trees in search of water as the intense heat of the day cools, and in the evening on a sunset/night drive allowing the opportunity to spot predators as they come out to hunt for their next meal.

Experience the wonders of Africa on the back of open 4×4 safari vehicles for exhilarating game drives led by our skilled and passionate guides with a vast knowledge of the local wildlife and habitats, ensuring that you get the most out of your safari experience with us.
