9 Day Makalali & Timbavati Safari Review

Judy from United States travelled with Discover Africa in November 2023

Trip of a Lifetime!

From the moment I started working with Diane at Discover Africa, I knew I was going to have an amazing trip. She listened to what I wanted to do, what type of accommodations I really wanted, and the feeling of security I needed to go on my first solo adventure. And everything was perfect, just as she had promised!!

I really wanted to do Glamping, and I stayed at the most amazing place, MCH Tented Luxury Camp in Garonga. It was beyond my wildest dreams! Such beautiful accommodations, such luxury, and the staff was beyond amazing. The safaris were out of this world, and we saw so many beautiful animals.

I could not have asked for a better intro to a safari. My next camp was at Timbavati at Kambaku Lodge, and it also had fabulous accommodations! The thatched roof pod was so luxurious and fit for a queen!! The guides and trackers were amazing, and we found the big 5 quickly.

We saw amazing things I never actually believed I would get to see. A mom lioness with her 3 cubs, a leopard with her kill, a pride of 23 lions, and elephants galore, including precious babies! I even was lucky enough to see a baby elephant nursing!!! As a labour and delivery nurse for 15 years, little things like this truly make my day.

We saw both black and white rhinos, numerous hippos, a cheetah, giraffes, wildebeests, hyenas, and even wild dogs! I could not have asked for anything more. I believe the reason my safaris turned out so well was the perfect planning by Diane from Discover Africa.

I cannot recommend them enough. Truly an awesome company with employees who care. My next trip I wont hesitate to contact Diane and set her to work on another wonderful vacation.
