You will be accompanied from the beginning of your journey right through to the end by one of Africa’s best guides on this 11-day bush, photography, and stargazing safari in South Africa. When you choose a privately guided safari you have someone dedicated to your travel party, exploring truly inspirational corners while benefitting from the knowledge and company of an expert.

Your adventure begins in the Timbavati Game Reserve, home of the ‘magnificent seven’ – lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and cheetah. You will learn all about wildlife photography, stargazing and acquire some bush skills, including baking bread. You will then move on to the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, one of South Africa’s most prestigious reserves with unforgettable sightings of leopard. The last leg of your journey takes you to the remote northern region of the Greater Kruger, a place of incredible natural beauty, sparsely populated by people but abundant in wildlife and true African safari experiences.

Day to day

After landing at Hoedspruit-Eastgate Airport, you will be welcomed by your private guide and road transferred to Simbavati Safari Lodge in the Timbavati Game Reserve – part of the Greater Kruger National Park. The lodge is on the banks of the Nhlaralumi River and exudes an ambience of intimacy and exclusivity, shaded by ancient Jackalberry and Leadwood trees.

Your next three nights will be spent at this safari home-away-from-home. Your private guide will take you deep into the heart of this wild landscape, exploring its intricacies and sharing knowledge about its geological wonders and the history of this famed area.

You will have the opportunity to learn the art of tracking and wildlife photography, delve into bush crafts, and bake bread in true bush style – on an open fire. Your nights are reserved for stargazing, far from the influence of city lights. African skies are among the world’s darkest, and there are few sights as beautiful as the Magellanic Clouds, the arc of the Milky Way and the Southern Cross – the most famed of all southern constellations.
