A wild time
Raw and refined, complex and simple, inspiring and distracting – the Lowveld has the power to confound, and that is why we love it. With each new day, whether we are climbing up Tomjachu Hill, studying the behaviour of our iconic wildlife, watching the quick, rumbling storms of the rainy season, or simply drinking in the wonderful sights, smells and sounds of the African bush, our affections for the continent that spawned humanity grow deeper, as does the knowledge that there is even more to explore by foot.
A Noah’s Ark of wildlife brings these epic landscapes to life, with a tangible and sometimes profoundly mysterious presence that adds so much personality to the African wild. So many of the great beasts, including giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, and of course the ‘grey ghost of Africa’ – the kudu – call our retreat home. Going on safari may be something of a travel cliché, but we’re yet to find a traveller who has watched the wildlife world in motion at our Eastern Pan or stumbled upon the paradise that is the Tipperary River below the Gorge, and has not been reduced to a state of childlike wonder.
If you are looking for a walking safari in the greater Kruger region, or a holiday submerged in relaxation in the bush, consider joining us at Tomjachu Bush Retreat. A trip to Tomjachu is arguably one of the most relaxing bush holidays in the region, with the perfect mix of leisure, scenery, and wildlife – creating timeless memories .
