Talamati is a Xitsonga word that means "Lots of Water”, yet despite the meaning of the name, the N'waswitsontso river is actually dry....however, the clay soil acts as a giant sponge holding vast amounts of underground water and keeps the vegetation lush all year round.
Talamati Bushveld Camp has fifteen bungalows spread out amongst trees along the river.
Each bungalow is serviced daily and provided with towels, bedding and soap. Electricity is generated by solar panels for the lights and fans.
Each bungalow has a fully equipped kitchen with a Fridge, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. A small room at the main gate provides communal freezers.
There is a small lounge, veranda and braaing area at each bungalow.
A boma area at Talamati Camp provides the ideal venue for family get togethers. The boma is situated between the two hides and away from the bungalows so other visitors won't be disturbed. It has a lovely view overlooking the veld.
The camp has two hides, one at the entrance of the camp, facing south and overlooking a floodlit waterhole...animal activity at the water hole is a great experience so keep an eye out after sunset to spot some of the more elusive nocturnal wildlife coming to drink.
In 2009 a leopard was photographed drinking at this waterhole at night - you can see the photographs inside the hide.
Since then, a few fortunate guests have witnessed a lion kill against the camp fence and our friend, Kaja Voth, saw two leopard cubs in a tree in front of her cottage!
The second hide faces west and is located at the other end of the camp...
