Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, South Africa
December 2006

We stayed at Umlani Bushcamp, a well run tented camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve just outside the Kruger Park. The advantage of being at a camp outside the Kruger, rather than in the Kruger itself, is that many of these camps have vehicles that are allowed, under the right circumstances, to go "off-road". This gets you much closer to the action.

Other camps in the Kruger Park area we have stayed at and liked include Tanda Tula which is also in the Timbavati, Notten's Bush Camp and the very luxurious Mala Mala in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve and Tangala Safari Camp in the Thornybush Game Reserve. Of these only Tanda Tula, like Umalni, is tented so if you don't like the idea of being under canvas maybe one of these others is for you.
