First ever safari experience. Mind boggling five days! Jacques delivered as promised on the final day with a beautiful pride of lions sunning themselves in a creek. There were cheetahs, leopards, hyena and the almost mythical wild dog sightings too. The tents were spacious , luxurious and comfy. The park only minutes away. The food, authentic and tasty :) I...

First off all we have to say, that we might have been really lucky to spot the magnificent 7 in just 2 game drives. Maybe we just had the perfect group of guests, that we had so much fun with. May also be, the guides just had an outstanding week. But I suspect, that camp is just one of the... More

I spent four nights with Tydon during December and had an absolute blast! Initially I booked at the Bush Camp only, but due to heavy rains I had the opportunity to experience both Tydon Lodges. The Safari Camp is situated right outside the Sabi Sands Game Reserve's gate and a short drive from the Kruger Gate, Kruger National Park. When... More

I struggled trying to find a place for safari in Kruger and felt so bombarded I didn't know which to pick. From start to finish we had such an adventurous time! All the guides are friendly and truly know their stuff. We were driven from Joburg and on arrival checked in to our tent. If you want glamour and a... More

We did a 4 Day Tent Safari that split our time between Sabi Sands Game Reserve and Kruger Park. From the minute Jaques picked us up from our hotel the experience was top notch. We had a fairly long drive from Johannesburg and Jaques gave us interesting information about each area we drove through on the way. Once at the... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Bush Camp and 2 at the lodge and enjoyed them both. The bush camp is nice and in the actual reserve so you have the chance to see more animal in the camp although we did not. The best thing about the camp is that that it saves you the 30 minute drive that... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at Tydon Safari Camp and we loved every minute. The staff are so amazing. The communication leading up to the event was great and quick considering we were on different sides of the world. The guides knew so much about the surrounding areas that no question was left unanswered. The atmosphere at the... More

With permanent raised tents, two game drives a day, and dinner around a campfire, Tydon felt like our vision of an authentic safari without roughing it. Everything was excellent from pre-tour communication through dropping us off at the airport.  We spent five nights at the safari camp (and four nights at Tyson's bush camp -- see separate review).  The tent...

We stayed at Tydon Safari Camp for 5 days before moving on to their Bush camp for a couple of days. The atmosphere at both camps is just incredible, the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and they made our first ever safari an unforgettable experience. We were lucky enough to have some amazing sightings and the proximity of the... More

Great experience with the Tydon team and their camp. If you're looking for a more authentic experience than a resort in the park, this is a great choice. The tents are quite nice and provide for the feel of camping. We heard lions roaring at night and fell asleep to the sounds of the African bush. Great to experience both... More
