Game Drives

Thabamati's Safaris

​Thabamati offers two safari game drives per day – one in the morning and one late afternoon/early evening – in one spacious game viewer seating 8 guests comfortably (4 rows of 2 individual seats).  Immerse yourself in nature while seeking out animals and birds of the Southern African bush and enjoy morning coffee and sunset stops along the way.

Each safari activity is led by a qualified field guide who will share with guests his passion and knowledge of the animals, birdlife and vegetation.  A full safety briefing will be conducted prior to embarking on your first African safari.

A typical day on Safari

Upon your arrival at Thabamati Luxury Tented Camp, you will be met by one of the guides or front- of-house staff members and proceed with your check-in procedures. After check-in, you will be shown to your tented accommodation. Enjoy high tea, before embarking on your safari game drive.
