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!
