This was our last port of call before returning to South Africa. The camp is one of two which have been built on the banks of the Limpopo River which separates Botswana from her first world neighbour to the south. The area in winter has a stark beauty which by itself would merit a visit. The camp is the usual layout of central area and outlying very comfortable rondells (traditional round African cabins with thatched roofs), all of it in something of a green oasis which is in sharp contrast to the ruggedness of the surrounding terrain.

A charming feature is the number of dussies (rock hyrax) that have made their home here. These normally little-seen animals who look like overgrown gray chipmunks are in fact the closest relative to elephants, and have learned that here they are safe from the attention of the serval, a little known African cat who is their greatest predator.

There is plenty of game to be seen on an early morning drive, if rarely any of the big five, but the draw is the beauty of the terrain. Tuli Lodge is 500km by road from Johannesburg and from Gabronne, and also has its own airport complete with customs and immigration called Limpopo Valley.
