The camp’s waterhole attracts a diversity of wildlife and gives one a sense of awe with every new encounter. Transforming you back to a past age when giant fauna ruled this planet. Roaring lions. A fish eagle’s call. The constant high-pitched buzzing of cicadas during the heat of the day. Hyenas crying from a distance in the pitch-black darkness at night. Countless birds – each with their own distinct call that it brings to this natural choir. Isambane will play with your senses. Nature’s orchestra never quiets down.

4. Unique Experiences Every Day
With every dawn and beautiful sunrise, there is no telling what you will see when go out on a game drive to explore the bush. It is quite thrilling not knowing what is waiting behind the tree up ahead or around the next bend. A pride of lion with a kill? An elephant that lazily grazes on grass next to the road? Or a herd of Zebra with young foals? And as the day draws to a close, witnessing the sun disappear behind the African horizon has got to be one of the best. Accompany that with a sundowner at a lookout point overlooking the Olifants River with honking hippos during your Isambane wildlife safari, and it will become one of the highlights of your trip. Every day holds something new.
