    One of the best alternatives to a game drive or walking safari is to journey off into the wilderness in a hired 4x4. The trip through a game reserve will be accentuated by the feeling of the tyres on the classic dirt roads in any reserve you choose to travel into.

  • AM Spa – Orpen

    AM Spa – Orpen

    Orpen Rest Camp which is situated centrally on the western border of the Kruger National Park. It is a small camp that derived its name from the surname of the donor of the land, Eileen Orpen. The scattered trees and wide-open plains covered by sweet grass attract many browsers. This in turn, attracts the eye-catching cheetah, lion, and leopard. Well known for its diversity of habitat and wildlife, Orpen offers visitors an excellent opportunity to experience close encounters with elephants, rhinos, buffalo, lions, and leopards in a natural environment. Wild dog, cheetah, zebra, and giraffe are also indigenous to this area, a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast.

  • AM Spa – Talamati

    AM Spa – Talamati

    Talamati Rest Camp, in the Kruger National Park. Talamati is a Xitsonga word that means "Lots of Water.” Yet, despite the meaning of the name, the river is dry. The clay soil, however, acts as a giant sponge holding a vast reservoir of underground water and keeping the vegetation lush all year round. Talamati Bushveld Camp is situated in a large open valley, affording superb game viewing opportunities. The luxuriant grassveld in the area attracts large herds of grazers, and the predators never lurk too far behind.
