Tengile River Lodge sits in the Sabi Sands Private Reserve – prime Big 5 country and home to Africa’s other big animals – hippo, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog and the larger antelope such as kudu and sable. It is famously good for predator sightings and one of the few places you can almost count on seeing a leopard.
The day begins with an early morning wake-up call and a light breakfast before departure at first light. This is when the more interesting animals are still on the move – last night’s hunters like wild cats and honey badgers – as well as lions, hyenas and leopards. You’ll explore in a specially-adapted 4X4 with open sides and high clearance – great for photography – and there’ll be an expert guide behind the wheel with a sharp-eyed tracker up front.
Back at camp there is the chance to enjoy a late morning walk with your guide, a great way to view the smaller details such as animal tracks, insects and birds. After lunch and an afternoon rest, it is time for an afternoon game drive, more often than not ending with sunset drinks and a slow drive back to camp with a spotlight in search of nocturnal animals.
