About the bush camp…

An hour east of nDzuti Safari Camp in an open Mopane forest lies a little bush camp with just meru style tents looking out over a clearing into the ethereal bright mopane woodlands. Basic but not so basic; the tents have en-suite bathrooms; open air but never shared, hot water and flush toilets. Sturdy beds and fine linen, floor mats and bedside tables furnish the stand-up-in height bow tents. Evening time guests are greeted from their drive by warmed towels, cold drinks and a delicious home cooked meal served by the fire side or in the thatched dining room.

Guests staying at Little nDzuti share access to the 8000plus hectares of the Greater Kruger Park we are privileged to have traverse upon, with the added value of some prime river frontage of the iconic Olifants River. The Maseke section of the Balule Game Reserve is famous for its superb lion and elephant sightings. Mopane veld is a great draw for Cape Buffalo too at certain times of the year, in fact all of the BIG FIVE can be encountered in this vast area as well as other favourites like giraffe and zebra, hippo and crocodiles. From Little nDzuti guests can choose to walk or to drive. Generally, we prefer to suggest a morning walk/ drive combination and an afternoon drive. Both outings are about 3 hours in duration and then during the heat of the day guests relax in camp at the splash pool or in the shady gardens keeping watch over the waterhole where the game comes down to drink.

Little nDzuti will open in mid-January and will be priced on a sliding scale allowing small groups exclusive use of this bush camp to pursue their own specific bush interest at their own pace surrounded by those the want to be with.

Special Package & Offer 1

4 Night Package at nDzuti Safari Camp PLUS: A Day trip into the Kruger National Park.

Your Itinerary:

Day 1

Lunch is served upon arrival, after you have checked into your luxury safari tent or two room chalet.

The afternoon game drive sets off as soon as the afternoon cools off.  The Maseke Game Reserve within the Balule area of the Greater Kruger Park has a diverse variety of wildlife found within this region of the Greater Kruger and includes all of the big 5 as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo, wild dog and pleasing bird life. The terrain is undulating with interesting rocky out crops dotting the land scape as well as sections of the Olifants River.

Sundown is celebrated with a drinks stop and the last section of the drive is at night by spotlight searching for nocturnal animals.

Dinner is served in either the dinning pavilion or in the boma by the fire side.

Day 2

An African drum beat announces the day and calls guests to coffee and a light breakfast before the onset of the game drive.

The three hour morning outing  in an open safari vehicle with relaxed viewing of the African wildlife and birdlife, and stopping en-route for a hot box with tea and cake, fruit and juices. A cooked breakfast is served once back in camp. The morning is then free to relax at the pool or on the viewing decks watching the animals make use of the waterhole or alternately to catch some shut eye in air- conditioned comfort. A light late lunch is served at 14.30

The afternoon drive leaves camp when the day cools down and then comes back after dark for an amazing dinner at the fire.

 

Day 3

An early morning game drive explores areas of this 8000 ha traverse within the Greater Kruger looking for new species and diverse landscapes.  Tea can be taken on the banks of the Olifants River listening to hippos and kingfishers greet the day. A cooked breakfast is prepared once back in the shady camp grounds. After breakfast a guide will offer a walk. Walking in the bush is an eye opener and the guide will interpret the many signs and tracks left by animals going about their daily dramas of survival in the bush and explain how to estimate the ages and times of the sequence of events. He will also spend time birding and going into the fascinating vegetation and its traditional medicinal uses and folk lore surrounding some plants. This area also has fascinating geology. Walking in big 5 country has risks so the guide will be armed and competent in protecting guests. No children under 16 may go on the walks.

Later lunch is served as usual and siesta time is available before the afternoon game drive.

 

Day 4

An exciting full day in the National Park is on the itinerary for this day. We drive through the Maseke towards the Eastern gate and exit the park just 20 km from the official Phalaborwa gate into the National Park. Initially the terrain and vegetation are pretty similar but as we put some distance in, it changes. We stop for a picnic breakfast overlooking a dam and then slowly make our way to Letaba Camp and the intriguing Elephant Museum. The route will vary with game movements and the season but along the way we stop at a rest camp with a restaurant for lunch. We head East towards the Lebombo Mountains and the open plains on the foot-hills where there is a possibility we may see cheetah, ostrich and Kori Bustard and Tsessebe. We exit the park at dusk and head back to nDzuti –an easy half hour drive.

 

Day 5

A last morning drive and breakfast are on the agenda before saying goodbyes.

Five ways to get the most out of your safari

Five ways to get the most out of your safari

Make the most of your safari with these 5 points

Patience

Be patient when looking for and watching wildlife. Be aware that the NatGeo and Attenborough wildlife documentaries were put together over some years and not a few days.

Senses

Remember to pause and to listen and to use your sense of smell. All your senses will come alive if you are aware of them.

Questions

When asking questions, you will gain more and delight your guide if you listen to the answers.

Detail

Take joy in the smaller details, the animal tracks, the birds and the interesting landscape and vegetation. It is often when stopping to view something small that a sighting of big game unfolds.

Bravery

Try to not be afraid of the odd insect or other creepy crawlies. While these creatures might frighten or repulse you, essentially, they have no interest in you. You are not on their menu, only in their space.

Jupiter in June 2019

Jupiter in June 2019

Our winter stargazing is truly spectacular, particularly after mid-winter and the solstice. Scorpio is rising, Orion is setting in the south and the magnificent milky way is almost on the meridian.

With Scorpio stretched across the southern sky, the red giant Antares is easily recognisable as the scorpion’s heart, and the massive planet Jupiter visible in the east, directly perpendicular below Antares!  We have been blissfully viewing Jupiter all night, all month!  Planets are normally only visible during the time when the sun is setting or rising the Sun sets and rises as they need to be in line with the Sun to reflect its rays. Planets have no fuel of their own and don’t “burn” as stars do.  Over this period, Jupiter is visible all night as it is closest to the Earth and between the Earth and the Sun.

Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system is 11 times the size of Earth but nowhere near as dense. In “brightness” or magnitude, it scores -2.6! Second only to Sirius, our brightest star at -1.46. (Our sun not counting). Jupiter has massive storms and swirling clouds that make it fascinating to view through binoculars. One might even see a couple of the four moons that orbit Jupiter.
