Tanda Tula is proud to be the first in the Timbavati to offer a remarkable once-in-a-lifetime experience: the Two Night Walking Safari.
The Two Night Walking Safari is based out of a secluded location, some 5km from Tanda Tula Safari Camp, called “Machaton Hide”. Machaton Hide is a double-storey wooden structure on stilts, with the top floor as the sleeping area and the lower floor utilised for storage. The hide overlooks a popular watering hole on the banks of the Machaton River.
The Two Night Walking Safari provides an opportunity for nature lovers and adventure seekers to experience the beautiful African wildlife on foot and up close, and to sleep under the stars, exactly as the early explorers did. This experience is ideal for guests who love to hike, enjoy bird watching, flora and fauna and game tracking on foot.
Each Walking Safari itinerary is individually tailored to suit guests’ requirements.
On foot and up close!
Every safari expedition is led by one of our highly qualified ranger and tracker teams. Guests will kick-start the day with an early-morning outdoor shower, steaming hot coffee and homemade rusks, before venturing out on a game walk. The group walks for between ten and twelve kilometers per day, tracking wildlife and bird watching and stopping to take in the magnificent scenery and biodiversity of the reserve.
After a day spent exploring the great outdoors, guests return to the secluded Machaton Hide. Here, they are treated to a hearty dinner cooked over a fire in the traditional ‘bush kitchen’ style. The Hide is rustic yet fully equipped with all the necessary creature comforts of camp beds, linen, mosquito nets, oil lanterns, bush showers and a loo. Memories are made and stories are shared around the campfire before guests retire with nothing but a mosquito net between them, the wilderness and the big night sky.
An intimate group of a maximum of four people per walking safari can be accommodated, making the experience ideal for families, friends and couples travelling together. This is an exclusive experience and guests are guaranteed that their group will be the only group on each walking safari.
Guests are also able to enjoy the two night walking safari from Tanda Tula and sleep in their luxury tent, should they not wish to sleep out at Machaton hide.
The walking safari experience cannot be used in conjunction with any other special or package. Please note that this experience is only available from 01 April until 30 September.
