The camping accommodation is very comfortable, beds good, staff fantastic, great knowledge, food was excellent. We were catered for as vegetarians with no problem, traveled with a 12 year old fantastic. Very reasonable choice. About 6 hours all up each day looking for animals.

We had an incredible time staying with Tydon. All of the guides were extremely knowledgeable, welcoming, and fun to spend time with. Kara was absolutely remarkable and made our trip that much better. If you get the privilege of riding with her, ask her about Ferrari Safari--she will not disappoint. The other guests were fun to be around, the meals... More

Right from the beginning when we booked the process was easy and Gavin was really helpful with the booking! We booked the 6 day safari which was a great amount of time as we were able to see everything we wanted... More

Tydon Safari was the highlight of my entire South Africa trip. I wish I would have had more time to stay a few extra days. The entire staff was amazing, helpful, knowledgable, and extremely nice. The game drives were so good and we were lucky to see all of the animals in the four days we were there. Sabi Sands... More

My wife and I decided to choose Tydon Safari Camp for our Christmas 2015 safari experience and we are so glad we did. We could have never imagined we would be in for such an amazing experience at Tydon. Our trip started on Christmas Day when Jared from Tydon collected us from our hotel in Johannesburg for our transfer to... More

After extensive research we chose Tydon as it ticked all the boxes for us. Quality of staff and game drives in Kruger and a private reserve, small guest numbers, good accommodation and an authentic safari experience, traditional food served at campfire together with all the guests, no pretensions. Tydon Safari was an unforgettable experience for us. We were picked up... More

When making plans for a Mid-October 2015 South African Safari for my wife and I and my son and his wife, we quickly found out that there were hundreds of options and choices. We also found out that there was a large variance in prices for Sabi Sands lodges. Being frugal retirees and being more interested in quality animal sightings... More

Tydon Safari's was our first stop on arriving in South Africa. After a long flight it was great to be met at the airport by Jarred, and sit back and enjoy the drive to the camp. We wanted to do a safari trip where we had the benefit of visiting not just the Kruger, but also stay on a private... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our Honeymoon, picked up by Jacques from Johannesburg. From the moment we started chatting to Jacques in the van, we knew we had found something truly special. The main reason we wanted to visit the Sabi/Kruger area was wildlife and the knowledge of the guides we met was remarkable. I probably... More
