Wilderness trails are (IMHO) the best way to enjoy the bush. Watching Elephants taking a mud bath from just 100m away is simply stunning and unforgettable. As already pointed out, the setting of the camp is absolutely stunning: the tents just adds to the feeling of being out in the bush. And sitting in the camp and overlooking the river... More

I can only echo what others have said about this trail. The setting for the camp on the Luvuvhu River is out of this world and both Christopher and David were excellent guides who really opened our eyes to the bush. One of my best moments was walking along listening to them imitating bird calls backwards and forwards. Very special... More

I was hoping that this temporary site would become the permanent spot for it at the river setting is stunning. Christopher, David and Herbert were excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable. We have been lucky enough to have been doing trails in the Kruger for over 20 years and each time we do one we feel so privileged to be able... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed the Nyalaland Wilderness Trail. It was a wonderful and very memorable experience. This was largely due to Christopher and David, the rangers who lead the trail. They ensured that the trip ran smoothly from start to finish. Their knowledge of and enthusiasm for the environment, animals and bird life was astounding. It was a... More

The setting is truly fantastic! The campsite is not quite your average camping experience, with ensuite tents and a wake up call, which starts with a warm basin of water delivered to your tent. Christopher, Alfred and Winston were incredible. It is evident that Christopher is very experienced as he was able to answer almost all the questions and identify... More

A HUGE thank you to Christopher, David and Winston for a fantastic experience yet again. The setting of the temporary camp is awesome and the best in the Park. We had wonderful walks and the information provided was brilliant. The food was pretty good and Winston should be proud of the meals that he has prepared. It was our 17th... More

Nyala trail base camp overlooks the Levubu river with a spectacular view of nature. There are no fences but our safety never felt compromised in an area where the big five walks freely. Our guides David and Christopher were very good and the camp cook did a great job. The area is not renowned for masses of wildlife but we... More

We are a group of regular trialists, all with over 10 walks behind us. Nyalaland has been a favourite of the group in the past, but after having our trip cancelled last year due to the floods, we were trepidatious to what lay in stall for us this year. Not tot worry - Christopher and David made a plan together... More

Wilderness trails are three nights and you walk for two. Wake early, walk all morning with a bush breakfast of crackers etc, back for brunch , eggs and bacon. Then rest or siesta and walk early evening and sundowner back for evening meal, braai or stew. Our guides were both very experienced, extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic about the bush. We...
