Safari & Activities at Nkelenga Tented Camp

Take advantage of the natural activities that come along with a visit to the bush, such as bushveld walks and safari game drives. Maximize your stay by taking part of the optional activities such as spa treatments, cruises on the Blyde River Canyon as well as helicopter rides over the Drakensberg escarpment.

Dawn and dusk safaris – Driving out into the bush during the morning or late afternoon, you will have an unfiltered view of various wildlife species from the open safari vehicle. Allow your ranger and tracker to assist you in seeing the nocturnal creatures hidden in the darkening bush.

Bushveld walks – Track the fresh footsteps found on the many bush trails alongside a trained ranger and tracker as you take a step closer to the bush life.

Optional activities:

Amani African Spa – Experience rejuvenation in its most natural form as you are treated to a choice of spa rituals and massages, while centred in the bush with the sounds of water and an abundant bird life providing natural background music.

Drumming –Transform to tradition as you partake in an ancient form of unifying groups. Each guest receives a musical instrument and contributes to the spontaneous mass music production.

Traditional dancers – Be exposed to the rhythm of Africa as you watch a traditionally-attired group of tribal dancers complement traditional music with an impressive variety of dance moves.

Balloon safari – Look down onto plains decorated with herds of game as you drift across the morning sky in a hot-air balloon safari.

Flight of the Dragon – Take a helicopter flight across the Drakensberg escarpment, looking down on the picturesque Blyde River Canyon and God’s Window. Enjoy a stop at a private mountain stream where you can refresh in a quick swim and enjoy a picnic lunch in the midst of a perfect setting.

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre – Experience the process of rehabilitating wildlife and returning them to the bush as you take a tour of the Centre and the Blyde River Canyon and the Swadini Dam and Museum.

Canyon Cruise and lunch – Cruise along the Blyde River Canyon as you engrave the breathtaking views in your memory. Be educated on the geology, wildlife and biology of this natural wonder as your guide talks you through the cruise. Enjoy a scrumptious lunch as the boat makes its way to the base of the Tufa Waterfall.
