Accommodation at nDzuti is a choice between luxury safari tents and two-room chalets.

The four luxury safari tents are permanent structures with en-suite bathrooms, doors, and not zipped flaps and air conditioning. The tents all have a un-uninterrupted view over the waterhole in front of the camp.

The four chalets have two en-suite bedrooms in each with a central lounge in between. There is a large covered patio out front, ideal accommodation for families or groups of friends traveling together.

Luxury Safari Tents

Four permanent safari tents have uninterrupted views of the renowned nDzuti water hole. The raised verandas have comfortable outdoor seating for hours of game viewing. The exterior door leads into the tented bedroom - with air conditioning and en-suite bathroom off the back wall under the canvas canopy.

The large bathroom has a glassed apex, twin his and her basins on a vanity counter, and spacious shower space with twin shower heads. Sleeping arrangements can be configured to an Imperial King Sized or two 3/4 sized twin beds.

Bedside lamps and a writing / dressing table add to the comfort. Bull denim curtains hang at the large gauze windows and outside canvas flaps are rolled up for when needed.

Two Room Chalets

Four chalets with two private en-suite bedrooms, lounge, and patio. The well-established garden houses four well-spaced chalets, just ideal private space for a group of friends traveling together and needing to catch up or for a family with kids who need quiet time to sleep.

The thatched units have a deep covered patio screened from the walk-way with lush greenery and scattered with seating and coffee table. French doors lead into the central lounge with tea and coffee station, wildlife prints and doors into opposite bedrooms.

The chalets are cool in summer and cozy in winter. The bathrooms have both a shower and bath. Bricked pathways lead from each chalet to the main dining pavilion and swimming pool with its raised vantage over the camp waterhole.

Program

Day 1: Arrival at the camp

Lunch is served upon arrival after you have checked into your luxury safari tent or two-room chalet. The afternoon game drive sets off as soon as the afternoon cools off.

The Maseke Game Reserve within the Balule area of the Greater Kruger Park has a diverse variety of wildlife found within this region of the Greater Kruger and includes all of the Big Five as well as giraffe, zebra, hippo, wild dog and pleasing birdlife. The terrain is undulating with interesting rocky outcrops dotting the land cape as well as sections of the Olifants River.

Sundown is celebrated with a drinks stop and the last section of the drive is at night by spotlight searching for nocturnal animals. Dinner is served in either the dining pavilion or in the boma by the fireside.

Day 2: Morning and afternoon game drives

An African drum beat announces the day and calls guests to coffee and a light breakfast before the onset of the game drive.

The three-hour morning outing is at leisure, seeking out relaxed viewing of the African wildlife and birdlife, and stopping en-route for a hot box with tea and cake, fruit, and juices. A cooked breakfast is served once back in camp.

The morning is then at leisure to relax at the pool or on the viewing decks, watching the animals make use of the waterhole or alternately to catch some shut-eye in air-conditioned comfort. A light late lunch is served at 15:00.

The afternoon drive leaves camp when the day cools down and then comes back after dark for an amazing dinner at the fire.

Day 3: Bushwalk and game drive

An early morning game drive explores areas of this 8000-hectare traverse within the Greater Kruger looking for new species and diverse landscapes. Tea can be taken on the banks of the Olifants River while listening to hippos and kingfishers greet the day. A cooked breakfast is prepared once back in the shady campgrounds.

After breakfast, a guide will offer a walk. Walking in the bush is an eye-opener and the guide will interpret the many signs and tracks left by animals going about their daily dramas of survival in the bush and explain how to estimate the ages and times of the sequence of events.

Your guide will also spend time birding and going into the fascinating vegetation and its traditional medicinal uses and folklore surrounding some plants. This area also has a fascinating geology. Walking in Big Five country has risks so the guide will be armed and competent in protecting guests. No children under 16 may go on the walks.

Later, lunch is served as usual and siesta time is available before the afternoon game drive.

Day 4: Full day in Kruger National Park

An exciting full day in Kruger National Park is on the itinerary for this day. You will drive through the Maseke towards the Eastern gate and exit the park just 20 kilometres from the official Phalaborwa gate into the national park. Initially, the terrain and vegetation are pretty similar but as you put some distance in, it changes.

You will stop for a picnic breakfast overlooking a dam and then slowly make your way to Letaba Camp and the intriguing Elephant Museum. The route will vary with game movements and the season but along the way, you will stop at a rest camp with a restaurant for lunch.

Head east towards the Lebombo Mountains and the open plains on the foot-hills where there is a possibility of seeing cheetah, ostrich, and Kori Bustard and Tsessebe. Exit the park at dusk and head back to nDzuti - an easy half-hour drive.

Day 5: Morning game drive and departure

  • A last morning drive and breakfast are on the agenda before saying goodbyes.

Location

nDzuti Safari Camp is based deep in the Maseke Game Reserve with no boundaries between their concession and the rest of the Klaserie, Timbavati, and Greater Kruger Park’s vast block of wilderness. Animals are free to come and go following ancient routes between breeding and feeding grounds.

Maseke Game Reserve, Balule North, Greater Kruger Park

The Maseke Game Reserve is made up of four properties amounting to 7500 hectares that were awarded to the Maseke Community of Ba-Phalaborwa in April 2014. A further property was later added to the reserve bringing it to approximately 8000 hectares (19,800 acres). The condition of the land restitution was that the farms be retained as conservation areas.

Today Maseke is part of the Greater Kruger Park; a vast tract of land that crosses international borders and covers many eco-zones and an essential player in African conservation.
