Your Tuli Adventure itinerary:
Day 1 Meet your ranger at Pont Drift border post or Limpopo Valley Airfield and transfer to Nokalodi Tented Camp in time for a light lunch served under an ancient Nyala Berry Tree. Nokalodi overlooks beautiful riverine bush and is backed by a massive sandstone cliff where resident Black Eagles nest. The comfortable tents have en-suite outdoor bathrooms & private patios. A brief rest, then off on your first adventure with an afternoon game drive followed by a stop for snacks and optional sundowners and a twilight drive home with the spotlight. A traditional potjie dinner provides a warm welcome back to camp.
Day 2 Wake up to a light breakfast before setting off on a morning walk, exploring the beautiful wilderness of Tuli on foot before retuning to camp for a sizzling brunch. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure in the peaceful atmosphere, perhaps spotting some wildlife from your patio and enjoying sundowners overlooking the Limpopo. After an early evening dinner, it’s time for the excitement of a night drive and the opportunity to spot some of the area’s nocturnal species.
Day 3 Awake to the sounds of the bush & after a light breakfast enjoy a game drive to the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo rivers, a unique and scenic spot where Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe meet. There’s the opportunity to spot the resident Pel’s Fishing Owl and water birds in the permanent pools. Return to camp after a picnic lunch and get ready to stretch your legs with a guided walk to the hide. After dinner overlooking the waterhole, you’ll be ready for a well-deserved sleep under the stars. Don’t forget to have your binoculars handy
just in case!
Day 4 Sunrise out in the bush together with tea/coffee & muffins before another fascinating walk takes you to Tuli Safari Lodge - your charming home for the next two nights, nestling on the banks of the Limpopo. Once you’ve settled into your suite, you’ll be ready for a hearty breakfast and then have time to enjoy the lodge – perhaps having a swim, visiting the hide, touring our conservation centre or maybe just having a snooze! A light lunch, then more relaxation time before enjoying a late afternoon drive with a stop for snacks and optional sundowners at one
of our dramatic viewpoints. Dinner this evening will be in the lodge’s boma together with entertainment from the Tuli staff choir – ending day 4 on a high.
Day 5 After a good night’s sleep you can set the pace of the day with optional activities including an opportunity to visit a local village or maybe a horse ride (extra charge applies for riding).
