The experience of a life? Maybe. For sure something unforgettable. We went to South Africa last summer for work reasons, and took the occasion to plan a safari. After some search on the web and some discussions among the four of us we got convinced by the description of Tydon Safaris and finally booked a five-day safari tour. Probably the simplest thing we can comment about it is: meeting the expectations, possibly even beyond that. You experience two basic types of drives: the ``standard'' one in the Kruger Park, along roads open to private drivers too, and the game drives into the Sabi Sand, a private area still within the Kruger, where you can have much closer (and sometimes breathtaking) contact with lions, rhinos, leopards, elephants, ... . Although any single meeting with an animal gives indeed some special emotion hard to forget, (and we do have something strong to look back on, like the family of lions with cubs playing around our cars during our first game drive, just to mention one) even deeper than that can be the feeling of being in the middle of the African nature at dawn or at sunset, for instance. Two small pieces of advice: seeing the big five is something great, sure, but don't underestimate apparently ``minor'' spottings, like birds, for instance. On the practical side, take something warm and comfortable to wear: at dawn or after sunset it can be quite chilly (and windy) even inside the car. About the premises and accommodation: the camp was charming, and our tent was quite comfortable. Basically we never had something to complain about, only the other two friends of us had some problem with the shower the very first day, soon fixed as far as we remember. The food was good, and every evening we had something different and special, in the romantic atmosphere of their campfire. Our opinion on the staff is similarly very good, in particular the guides were knowledgeable and well disposed to share with us and to answer our frequent questions. Finally, our travel back to Johannesburg was in itself an experience, driven by Gavin through the spectacular God's Window. As you can see it took some time to us to eventually write our comments, but take the right side of this: after one year our impression is still quite strong.
