My husband and I had planned our trip to Tembe for six months and it was a fantastic place to eventually be. The tented accommodation was great and spacious with en suite bathroom etc. A walk along a sandy path to get to the central area is a bit 'scary' at night. We didn't know what animal would be around. On one occasion when we were going to the diningroom we heard noises in the bush as we were walking from our tent. We shone our torch but did not see anything untoward. Once at the dining area we heard a man say his wife had phoned him saying an elephant was blocking her in and she could not leave her tent! So that answered the question as to what was making the noise we heard. One of the men from Tembe was told and he went along and managed to get the elephant away! The game drives were very interesting, as the driver was a local resident and very knowledgeable. He managed to find a lioness lying off the road and we drove close by to have a better look. She did not move away and it was a lovely sight. The driver found a number of elephant in an open vlei area and we sat in our vehicle watching them for a long time. When one of them made to come towards us, the driver drove off. We saw wildebeest too. My husband went on an early morning drive which he thoroughly enjoyed especially when they saw his favourite wild animal, the rhino. It is so sad to see rhino in the game parks, when they are being slaughtered by poachers. The whole stay was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely big water hole and we were taken there to sit and watch the animals coming down for a drink. We saw zebra, impala, kudu, nyala and elephant. They have a Webcam at the waterhole and I get a lot of enjoyment when at home watchihng the animals at the waterhole.
