This is Tasimba – Your Own Private Wilderness

Chapter Four of Eight




You’ve probably seen photos taken in some of Africa’s best-known public safari areas in which a beautiful wildlife scene is surrounded by other safari vehicles, minibuses or private 4X4s.  Do you really want your safari photos to look like they were taken at the “safari park” or a zoo here at home?

On our Tasimba safari, you’re unlikely to see any other vehicles all day, let alone to have them in your photos.  Tasimba guests are almost the only visitors in this huge, unspoiled wilderness.



Whether you’re in a safari vehicle, on a bush walk or sitting quietly on the private deck of your beautiful room in camp, the vastness will take your breath away.  Without all the distractions of everyday life, you will feel completely enveloped in the never-ending landscape that stretches out to meet the huge sky above you.  The amount of space makes you realize just how small we humans really are, and you will experience a deep personal belonging to nature unlike anything you’ve ever felt before.



You will cherish the fact that, apart from a few vehicle tracks, there are no other signs of human presence here.  No noise.  No traffic.  No litter.  Not even the sound of a jet high in the sky.  It’s just you – surrounded by unspoiled nature and the abundance of animals and birdlife all going about their day, naturally wild.



The experience feels intensely personal, as if all this wildlife, all this nature, all this vast open wilderness is yours alone.  Our Guests have told us that this newfound connectivity with nature and the wide-open space inspires them to think more deeply about themselves and their life’s purpose, to immerse themselves in mindfulness, and to gain new awareness of who they are and how they want to be. 


Just imagine being in your own private wilderness; having all that space, together with 100 species of animals and over 400 species of birdlife!  That’s exclusivity
a truly unique benefit that makes Tasimba so different from any other safari.
