Wonderful first safari experience with the guys at Tydon - all staff are welcoming and very knowledgable and the wildlife, the area and the bush, and a lot of fun to spend time with. All game drives are well organised and the tents are wonderful. Food was particularly good (the recipe for the poiki would be much appreciated please!!), all... More

If you want a 5 star hotel experience with some naff safaris thrown in GO ELSEWHERE. This is all about the safari experience with very comfortable accommodation and good food thrown in. Excellent guides and a good mix between the private reserve and the Kruger. We were lucky and saw the big 5 (inc. black rhino) all on the same... More

Tydon Safaris is the real deal! I had a brilliant experience with Tydon Safari, staying at the Tydon Bush Camp, and Debbie was our guide. I highly recommend this experience. The guides (we spent time with Debbie, mostly, and Jacque) are VERY experienced, and passionate about the Bush, and about giving you the best experience possible. This is a family... More

We were two families (total of 9 people) staying at Tydon Safari Camp. We were lucky to have the camp to ourselves From the moment we were picked up from our hotel in Johannesburg until the moment they dropped us back, we had a fabulous time. Jared and Bernette were fabulous hosts, guides, cooks and friends and made our first... More

Its hard to write anything that hasn't already been written about this fabulous safari camp. Sure, saw all the big 5 plus many others, the accommodation was excellent, as was the food, however the big winner for me was the staff. Everyone from Gavin and Vangie, through the various guides (in particular Jared) and the kitchen and room staff went... More

We visited Tydon Safari Camp in April 2014 for 4 days and had an AMAZING time! We were picked up by Gavin at the Outlook Lodge where we enjoyed a lovely meal and night's rest. Our safari experience was amazing, visiting both Sabi Sands and Kruger National Park. Our guide Jared was outstanding, and extremely knowledgeable, and very friendly. We... More

I've been dreaming of a safari since I was a young girl....to say that Tydon Bush Camp exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Our group of six had the Bush Camp to ourselves. What a treat. Jacques was our extraordinary tracker...he was determined that we would see the Big 5, and we did....even if it meant he took us out... More

I can't speak highly enough of this place....... We were picked up from the excellent Outlook Lodge - see seperate review, by Jared, who was our guide for most of our trips, the long drive from Johannesburg was broken up well with Jared's useful tips and information. The luxury tents were very comfortable, almost boutique luxury, meals were excellent, held... More
