Tsakane 4 Night Safari Experience

 
 

Tsakane Safari Camp is situated in the Northern section of Balule Nature Reserve and Greater Kruger Conservancy. This purpose built camp is set in a beautifully maintained indigenous garden. Guest facilities include a pool, reading lounge, bar, open-air dinner boma, Jacuzzi, conversation lounge and dining room. A maximum of eight guests are accommodated in two en-suite chalets and two luxury en-suite safari tents, all set in the bush fanning the perimeter of the camp. We believe that catering is integral to the safari experience and most meals are therefore traditionally prepared by our resident Camp Cook on an open fire in conversation with Guests.

Tsakane Indawo Trails Camp is situated some 20km from Tsakane Safari Camp in the Balule Nature Reserve and Greater Kruger Conservancy. The camp is unfenced and has been carefully designed to fully integrate with its natural surrounding environment. A maximum of eight Guest are accommodated in four twin safari tents while a traditional open-air dinner boma, splash pool and lounge deck with sweeping views across the reserve complete the camps facilities. All meals are traditionally prepared on an open fire and safari activities include morning walks, midday conservation activities and afternoon / night drives. Guests are hosted by an experienced Trails Ranger and Tracker to ensure an adventurous and educational walking experience.

Health & Clothing
Health
A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travellers over 1 year of age arriving within 6 days from infected areas.
Vaccination against typhoid is advised.
Malaria risk, predominantly in the malignant falciparum form, exists throughout the year in the low altitude areas (eastern part) of the Limpopo Province, eastern part of Mpumalanga (including the Kruger National Park) and northeastern KwaZulu/Natal as far south as the Tugela River. The risk is highest from October to May.
Bilharzia (schistosomiasis) is endemic in the north and east. Avoid swimming and paddling in fresh water - swimming pools which are chlorinated and maintained are safe.

Clothing
South Africa’s climate is generally sunny and pleasant. Winters are usually mild, although snow falls on the mountain ranges of the Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State and Natal and occasionally in lower-lying areas, when a brief cold spell can be expected throughout the country.
