There is a place in Africa where the wild elephants still roam.
The legendary Ivory Route where the great tuskers still tramp their ancient pathways through dense sand-forest and tall yellow grass. This is Tembe Elephant Park, a 300 square kilometre reserve between Zululand and Mozambique, home to Africa’s largest elephants as well as the smallest antelope, the suni.
The Big Five also find their home here – lion, leopard, black and white rhino and buffalo, as well as more than 340 bird species and myriad other animals and plants. It is a world of hot silence and white sand, where the busy modern world ceases to exist and only the rising and setting of the sun marks the passage of time. It is also the ancestral home of the Tembe people, who co-own and manage Tembe Safari Lodge: a place of warm African hospitality, classic safari food, world-class personal service.
To view the busy waterhole from the comfort of your home, there is a 24 hour webcam.
Your accommodation is in tents, made of light wood and canvas so as not to block out the sounds of the bush; an outdoor shower under the stars. However, there is no sacrifice of luxury – the en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds, superb service – all of these will make you feel like African royalty.
