THE ULTIMATE SAFARI CHECKLIST

Binoculars and ranger
The first item on your ultimate Safari packing checklist should always be binoculars.

also help you see the pearly whites of lion, or the eyelashes of elephant…

Goodmorning 2

When you’re out in the wild, it’s always best to blend in. Unfamiliar, bright colours like red or yellow may unnerve some timid wildlife – this is of particular importance on Walking Safari. In the bush, glitz and glamour can be found in nature itself. Make sure you pack comfortable easy-to-wear clothing for walking, and the rugged paths you’re sure to encounter on Open Vehicle Safari.

The benefits of being in nature

Game Drive
Did you know that being submersed in nature, doesn’t only feel like it benefits you, but there are actual studies that prove the bush improves your health?

Having a holiday retreat in the bush has a host of health benefits like:
Lowering blood pressure
Improving sleeping patterns,
De-stressing
Additional vitamin D intake
Having a “digital detox”

Not only are these the proven benefits of being in the bush, but you also have the opportunity to feel more refreshed and ready to tackle life.
Swimming Pool

When you take the time to retreat at Nambiti Hills you also experience the excitement of going on Game Drive and seeing wild animals in their natural habitat, indulging in gourmet cuisine and relaxing at our pool, overlooking the Nambiti Valley. Have a treatment at Zolile Spa, and unwind with a glass of wine or cocktail while you cosy up with a book, fireside.
You will also have quality bonding time with loved ones, friends and family.

Why Are They Called the Big 5?

If you are visiting Nambiti Hills you might be lucky enough to see all of the Big 5.
Lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino.

18102015-IMG_0183-4

There are only 11 countries in the world that have the Big 5, and all of them are in Africa.

But have you ever wondered why these specific animals are called the big five?

These animals were named the “Big 5” because they are not only among the most poached animals, but also the most difficult and dangerous to hunt on foot.

These five large African mammal species were known to be treacherous and it was considered a feat by trophy hunters to bring them home.

Today, however, the expression takes on a gentler form, referring to seeing the Big 5, as opposed to hunting them, during safaris on the African continent.

The word then spread about the Big 5, this name sticking in people’s minds and later becoming a great tourist attraction for foreigners.

Elephant and Game Viewer
A lot of people ask why these animals were chosen, as mentioned above they were extremely dangerous to pursue on foot and many hunters lost their lives while trying to get that prestigious trophy – primarily because they hunt back!

Let us know if you manage to see all of them on your next Open Vehicle Safari – and send us your pictures, if you wish to have them featured to marketing@nambitihills.com

the reason buffalo are in the big 5

Buffalo Herd - Hippo Dam - Nambiti
Is the African buffalo a dangerous animal? The reason early trophy hunters included the African buffalo as one of the Big 5 is that they were considered to be one of the most dangerous species to hunt.

In general, Buffalo in herds are placid, although some of the old bulls in the herds tend to be easily angered and prone to charge when disturbed. Large herds are usually very relaxed and unlikely to attack.

If you’ve ever been on a Game Drive with Ranger Joe, you will know this all too well…

Tracker Joe

Joe joined us as a Tracker, and his roots in tracking are deep.

His Game Drives are usually filled with action and he likes to get as close as possible to these big beasts.
Joe’s incredible ability to read animal behaviour becomes apparent in situations like this.

You’ll often find yourself right in the middle of a Buffalo herd with Joe – this is when he will ask all those seated to remain still as the Dominant bull approaches, knowing that this bull in particular has a temper.

Buffalo Safari

Occasionally a full-scale fight occurs, where combatants will charge each other with their heads up, and at the last moment, lower their heads for a bone-crunching crash.

The weaker bull will be pushed sideways and immediately breaks and runs to avoid a horn in the flank.

Did you know that when two 800kg African buffalo bulls charge towards each other head-on, the impact is equivalent to a car hitting a wall at 50km/h?

Buffalo
Watch out for these incredible beasts on your next Game Drive.
