The Tamboti trees have a high concentration of tannin in its leaves, which make it unpalatable to most wildlife species but the Kudu and Black Rhino have a special affinity for the Tamboti tree leaves, while Porcupine feed on the bark. Night drives enable you to take part in the nocturnal activities of Kruger's secretive creatures, in the company of experienced guides and trackers.
Guided bush walks, in the company of trained field guides with backup rifles take groups of up to 8 people out into the bush for a few hours. Learn and observe fascinating facts about the African bush along the most picturesque route of the Timbavati River area.
