Tembe is the backyard of all our experienced guides and trackers. Combined with local knowledge, they are proud to welcome visitors to their ancestral home. What makes Tembe unique is the special interactions you have with the elephants.
Your guides know the elephants and the elephants know the guides. The elephants are relaxed around the game drive vehicles, offering you unforgettable encounters with these gentle grey giants.
Tembe is home to an abundance of wildlife – including the Big Five.
Black and white rhino, buffalo, leopard, hippo, serval, eland, zebra, giraffe, hyena, jackal, wildebeest, nyala, kudu, waterbuck, reed buck, red duiker, warthog, and other small mammals thrive in abundance.
Your guide will share their stories, and their place in the ancient, unspoilt tapestry that is Tembe.
All of our rooms boast a fully equipped outdoor spa treatment area. Enjoy a pampering private massage under a tree canopy surrounded by the sounds of the African bush.
