Helen’s Luxury Tented Experience

Helen’s Luxury Tented Experience


Helen’s tour offers the wonderful experience of tented camps in Africa’s premier destinations. As she says, “I really think there is something incredibly special about staying in luxury tented types of accommodation and adding incredible safari destinations to the mix you can’t beat it! The locations are also fabulous and really just the best in terms of what we can offer you. It is ideally for romantic honeymooners or for those couples celebrating something special.
“Ngala Tented Camp is so romantic at night with lanterns around the camp and romantic riverbed dinners for special occasions. There are stunning views onto the Timbavati River coupled with wonderful food and typical of a 5-star AndBeyond service.
“Elephant Camp is another great location on a private concession. Each suite has a private plunge pool, which is very romantic. You get incredible views of the Smoke that Thunders and also the gorges that separate both Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is close enough to the Falls to still do all the activities too and the elephant inter-action is not to be missed!
“Machaba is a great location in the Khwai area of the Delta and is reminiscent of yester-year with incredible furnishings. The lodge has a 1950’s style safari tents – so really something from a classic safari movie like Out of Africa. It’s pretty secluded with really amazing game viewing all year round.”

Arrive at Johannesburg International Airport and travel via scheduled light aircraft to Ngala Tented Camp. Ngala Tented Camp, situated in the Timbavati Reserve, is renowned for sophisticated accommodation in tranquil African bush surrounds. Set on the banks of the great seasonal Timbavati River, the camp was built with a light footprint to minimise the impact on the environment. Enjoy Big Five game viewing on interpretive game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles led by expert rangers and trackers.

From these tented verandas, one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp.
