So this is a review that is a year late, sorry guys. My husband and I visited Tydon Safari Camp in March 2013. Gavin was really sweet in giving us a honeymoon discount... Thank you. We reached a bit late on the first day and so missed the afternoon safari. But the morning safari more than made up for that.... More

The guides were extremely knowledgable; they explained many facts about animal behavior during our bush drives and they made sure we saw as many animals as possible. The tent accommodations were very suitable (equipped with A/C and a rotating... More

Yes, I had read all of the reviews prior to our family spending a week in December and as such had pretty high expectations. But, the overall experience, from communications, to guiding, to meals and accomodations was so exceptional, that is exceeded even our high expectations. We travelled with our two teenage children, 15 and 14, and prior to the... More

Over the whole trip, we saw all of Big 5, as well as monkeys, babboons, zebras, giraffes, and others. Jared was very knowledgeable, humorous, and a great host. Priced very fairly. We... More
