About Tydon Safari Camp

Nestling in the shade of indigenous trees, this visual oasis of inspirational elements combines to cumulate in this magnificent Tented Safari Camp. Intimate and comfortable, yet simplistic combined with excellent service, the Camp creates a traditional African Safari feel to your journey, and you can be forgiven for thinking you were transported back in time to an unspoilt and unexplored Africa.

Sharing its borders with the world renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger region due to having unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park, Tydon Safari Camp offers guests a unique opportunity of staying in permanent semi luxury tented rooms and experiencing wildlife game drives and bush walks in the Sabi Sand as well as the Kruger National Park.

Providing you the necessary nutrients for the day, breakfasts will be served in the dining area with a choice of either a traditional fried breakfast, or indulge in a fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, while cereals and fruit juices are there to complete your balanced meal.

Lunch
Lunch times are in the heat of the day, and with that in mind we prepare refreshing and light meals which are sure to satisfy the taste buds. A variety of fresh sandwiches, fresh salads, fruits and fruit salads will be served along with an iced cold beverage or fruit juice.

Dinner
The crackling camp fire with flickering lanterns under the African skies sets the mood for dinner, while in the distance some evenings, the sounds of nocturnal animals calling in the distance can be heard. Sure to delight your senses, either steaks, boerewors (sausage) or chicken will be prepared to perfection before your eyes and served with salads, bread rolls and corn, while an ice cold beverage or bottle of South African wine compliments the evening meal.

Breakfasts, lunch and dinners are included.

Safari Activities

Safari dives are conducted in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park. In addition we do bush walks and night drives in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Each day will see you participate in exhilarating game viewing opportunities on safari drives, with a chance to relax and refresh the soul, while maybe being fortunate enough to see Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino in their natural habitat.

Each morning your guide will wake you before first light to embark on you safari drive. The bush is already alive, the air filled with birdsong as the rising sunlight dances off beads of dew on spiders' webs.

As the intense heat of the day cools, your afternoon safari drive will see you witness the inhabitants of the bush as they become restless and move out from the shade of the trees in search of water. Watch in awe as the sky turns to the sensational vibrant reds, gold’s and oranges, typical of an African sunset which majestically reflects its rays over rivers, natural waterholes and trickling streams.

Safari drives are conducted in open game viewing vehicles, which provide panoramic views when we encounter animals on drives, as well as allowing you to get an insight into the sounds and smells of the African wilderness. The vehicles have quick release windows and doors for your comfort when the unpredictable African weather provides us with an unexpected thunderstorm. For your convenience, if you would prefer to do safari drives in an air-conditioned, closed vehicle, we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
