A typical day at Tambuzi Baobab Camp starts with an early morning wake-up call and an activity. During the winter months morning game drives begin later and evening drives start a little earlier.
In between the morning and evening activities there will be more than enough time for rest and relaxation. Alternatively other activities can be arranged upon request.
Below is a rough schedule of what an average day on safari looks like. Times may vary depending on season and weather conditions.
05h00 – Wake-up call
05h30 – Quick coffee and depart for activity
08h30 - 09h00 - Return to camp and enjoy a hearty breakfast
14h30 - Lunch
15h30 - Tea/Snack
16h00 – Depart for afternoon/night game drive
19h00 to 20h00 – Return to camp
20h00 – Dinner followed by campfire chatter/drink.
The average rainfall for the year is 350mm, with most occurring during mid-summer (November-February). The rainfall generally occurs in the form of thunderstorms where a downpour is experienced and very seldom lasts longer than a few hours.
The average maximum temperatures range from 24.5 degrees C in July to 31.5 degrees celsius in January with the average monthly minimum occurring in July at a temperature of 8.5 degrees C. The dry season, in winter, is the peak safari season - this is when the bushveld is thinnner and it's easier to spot wildlife.
During the summer months the weather can be hot and sticky. You may want to bring a few outfits:
Tambuzi Baobab Camp is located in a relatively unknown reserve in the corner of the Balule Nature Reserve (Maseke). There are barely any lodges and camps in the area; giving guests a thrilling experience with wildlife, and in particulate the big five. There are two game drives a day, and you are able to get a lot closer to big game than you would in a national park.
Life at camp is relaxed. Guests can choose to stay in the dome safari tents or the garden cottage. The boma area and outdoor seating area is the perfect place to stargaze and chat around the campfire.
