  • I recently returned from my first Safari experience in South Africa. Not only did the Ndtuzi camp experience meet every expectation I had, but it far surpassed them! I give my highest recommendation to anyone seeking a comfortable and exhilarating safari wishing to see a host of animals (including the big 5) and birds with a truly knowledgeable and genuinely caring staff. Brett, Sherie, Don, Bruce and the staff could not have been more accommodating and professional throughout the entire 5 day Safari and stay at Ndtuzi. The vast knowledge of every animal, bird and plant that our guide Brett presented was only surpassed by his ability to track them down. The landscape allowed for breathtaking views high above rivers and made for some amazing photo opportunities. Getting close to the animals was an absolute thrill and a feeling that I will remember for a long time to come. I will not soon forget the elephants, lions, wildebeests, rhinos, giraffes, cape buffalo, antelope, water buck, hippos, zebras, and birds too numerous to count that we encountered during our safari. We loved it so much that we decided to extend our trip an extra day, just so we didn't miss a thing. Sherie made delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner that gave the experience a wonderful touch of home cooking. The entire experience was made even better by the comfortable atmosphere and friendships that we developed with our guide Brett and cook Sherie; I could not imagine that a better Safari experience is possible than my experience at Ndzuti, an experience of a lifetime and one that I will always cherish!

The little town of Hoedspruit and the surrounding private nature reserves of Timbavati, Klaserie, and Balule that make up part of the Greater Kruger Park are situated in a fairly arid area of South Africa (It’s just this characteristic that bestows us with our converted sweet grasses.) Rain is revered; we pray for it, dance for... read more »

Things go croak and jump in the night.

During this season of plenty, our nights in the bush are filled with a cacophony of sounds that are often unrecognisable. Frogs are responsible for many of these and even for the most determined nocturnal explorer, the frogs in question can be very difficult to find. They can be tiny, well camouflaged and concealed in... read more »

      The World Heritage Site of Mapungubwe while being of enormously significant historical value has had a rocky past and seems destined to face future difficulties. The discovery of the site in 1933 confirmed the existence of a population of commercially active indigenous people that thrived and traded in this area of Southern Africa in the... read more »
