Activities at Talamati Bushveld Camp
Night drives enable you to observe some of the nocturnal wildlife of Kruger Park.
Talamati Camp is a good game viewing region in a sloping valley and hill area, that is dominated by Knob Thorn and Bushwillow trees. Night drives enable you to take part in the nocturnal activities of Kruger, in the company of experienced guides and trackers. Guided bush walks, in the company of trained field and transportation guides with backup rifles take groups of up to 8 people out into the bush for a few hours.
The boma area at Talamati Camp could prove to be the ideal venue for family dining get togethers. Catering is also available for group gatherings. The boma is situated away from the cottages so other visitors won't be disturbed by functions held there.
Please Note: If you must walk around at night please do not so so without a torch.
Track Rhino, Elephant and Lion on foot while learning and observing fascinating facts about the African bush. Some of the animals to be seen in the area are Giraffe, Kudu, Eland, Impala, Zebra, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Hyena. Animal activity at the water hole is an 24 hour experience so insomniacs can keep an eye out after sunset to spot some of the more elusive nocturnal wildlife coming to drink.
Prominent birdlife attractions in the area are redbilled Buffalo Weaver, Glossy, Greater Blue-eared and Burchell's starling and mourning Dove. Also look out for the masked Weaver and their hanging nests. At night, Giant Eagle, Barn, Scops and Pearlspotted Owls can be seen.
The site is exceptionally active bird-wise, with many passerines coming to drink and joining the ubiquitous Hammerkop, Greenbacked Heron and Great White and Little Egrets. However it is an excellent venue to see Bluecheeked Bee-eater that is regularly in attendance here. In camp one can see sunbirds feeding on the aloes in the gardens.
