Up for breakfast with big smiles on our faces, we move on to our completely private camp in the company of a tracker and a guide in the Balule Game Reserve. The thatched chalets are built on a 5 000ha stretch of land on a cliff above the Klaserie River. The reserve affords a ‘one of a kind’ breathtaking view of the Bushveld and provides you absolute comfort while retaining the charm and ambiance of a bygone safari era. Your days at the camp will be spent getting up early and enjoying game drives that are specially designed around you and your friends when searching for Africa’s Big 5! and major animals such as giraffe, zebra and kudu – providing you with amazing photography options. Lions and leopards are often seen in the area. With the knowledge of your experienced tracker and your guide, you will also be introduced to smaller and lesser known creatures and learn about the local bird population, indigenous plants and their medicinal properties.
