Frequently Asked Questions
Why go to the Kruger National Park with Tambuzi Safaris?
At Tambuzi Safaris you will find people that have a passion for the Kruger National Park. We love to share our knowledge of the bushveld with everybody that we meet. We are highly experienced and have lots of insight about the Kruger National Park. One of our best characteristics must be that we focus on small groups to give each safari trip the best chance of seeing the best sights that the Kruger National Park has to offer. Our safaris depart every day of the week to suit our clients needs.
Where do you pick up your clients and at what times of the day?
We are based in Hoedspruit (Limpopo Province) and will pick up from any lodge/ hotel in the area. We pick up at 5:30 in the morning for a full day open vehicle Kruger Safari, or half day morning safari. For afternoon safaris, we pick up at 13h00 in the afternoon. At Tambuzi Safaris we are flexible and we will pick you up later if that is what you prefer. Most of the wildlife in the park prefers hiding in the shade during the hot afternoons, so we highly recommend joining us for the earlier safaris to get the most out of your trip.
Is the Kruger National Park a malaria area?
Yes the Kruger National Park falls in a malaria area. But most foreign people are pleasantly surprised at how few mosquitoes are actually encountered during their visit to the Kruger Park. Mosquitoes breed in water, and even in the middle of our rainy season during December/ January mosquitos are not common. It is better to consult your doctor and take malaria prophylactic drugs for peace of mind.
Is there any places to stop in the Kruger National Park to buy supplies, beverages and souvenirs?
Yes there are many little towns around the Kruger Park and camps with restaurants inside the park where you can find anything from grocery stores, souvenir stores, petrol stations and much more.
Is there a recommended type of dress code for a Kruger National Park safari?
You are going to be driving around for the majority of the time on your safari experience, it is advisable that you wear clothes that are not too tight and not too hot. Winters can be cold, so check the forecast beforehand, but summers are the opposite, so just take a jacket with you, in case it gets cold, and stay away from high heel shoes.
