A beautiful day in Tembe – Joy Resor Safari

We started off with an early-morning game drive in Tembe Elephant Park (always one of our favorite places)! We enjoyed fantastic sightings of a herd of buffalo, scores of elephant, and some really cool birds!

We then decided to explore the Tembe area. This included a stop in a remote area close to Tembe Elephant Park, to try some of the local palm wine, called Njomane. The palm wine is tapped from the Ilala palm trees and this particular area belongs to the chief’s son, whom granted us permission to visit. Very few tourists get to see this area, so it was truly a treat for our guests, Joy and Andrew!

Joy getting a taste of the Njomane!

We also had the chance to visit a local Tembe Sangoma (traditional healer). It was a true taste of local Africa wrapped up into this beautiful day!

We enjoyed laughter, sunsets, elephants tussling and drinking water, hippos in St. Lucia estuary, dipping our toes in the Indian Ocean and so much more. It truly was a wonderful, memorable visit that will linger inside us forever. Thank you Outdoor Africa!

THANK YOU OUTDOOR AFRICA for providing me with the experience of a lifetime. Toby customized the trip based on our specific preferences and abilities. Hayden was truly a wealth of knowledge about all things South African and I learned to really appreciate nature in a way that I never had before.

We could not have had a better trip! My husband worked with Toby Brown in the U.S. who then coordinated with Hayden Elliott over in SA. We had three weeks with Hayden driving us the entire time. His knowledge of the area, animals, birds, etc. was amazing.
