Seriously though..any leopard sightings at Talamati lately?
I heard that (what must have been the one I heard) was regularly seen from the camp & its surrounds.


When we were in August for the second visit (same trip) in Talamati, there had been two days before, a leopard kill on impala.
Visitors have seen the whole lot from the little bird hide.
After the kill he hung it into the closest tree, so everybody could enjoy this sighting very much (except for us, because we had a meeting with Leopard at Satara :lol: )
When we were there, there was a leopard kill just behind our cottage.
And we had leopard female and cubs at the Mahlabyanini waterhole.
So I would say there is plenty of opportunity to see leopard and rhino and lion and ellies and sable and and and..... GREAT CAMP!

Hi I've been to Talamati and I really enjoyed the things I saw @ the hide. I mean you could sit there for hours and see probably everything. Does anyone have anything to say about the hide.

The entrance is at the left. The bungalows are numbered left to right, ending at 15 at the right above the managers house, the blue one.
If I look at this photo I would opt for number 11 or 12, but in this topic 14 seems to be the favorite while it's almost on top of 15.
Which should I take?

I presume you are looking for a 6 bed?
I prefer the ones nearer to the gate, an easy walk to the waterhole hide, but not # 1 as the baboons sleep in the tree next to it :roll:
I like # 2 but that is a 1 bedroom and 2 sleeper couches in the lounge.

I think only 2, 4 and 10 are four sleepers, I prefer #2 but any is OK :wink:
Please give my regards to GP :)

Number 11 is the most private, we pretty much want to be by ourselves when in Kruger and I say number 11 is the most private.
And personally i think the most entertaining guide in Kruger is at Talamati and his name is Andre, the animals were scarce that night because of the wind but that was the best night drive I've been on, beating one's with great sightings.

Hi Forumities,

just a short question regarding the cottages at Talamati. Does each Cottage has got it's own Braai facility???

Talamati has got it's own reception, right???

Thanks in advance for your help.

Correct, Pumbaa, te only funny thing is that the units face each other, not like at Biyamiti where they face the river.

Go on a night ride from T, you often see unusual animals.

Talamati has a hide overlooking a waterhole. Serval are regularly sighted on night rides. The game seems to be a bit sparse but have also seen lion, rhino, ele, AWC, civet, & friends also saw honey badger & sable near Fairfax waterhole on the same trip as us.

Hi Talamati Fans

Staying for four nights at Talamati in October. Do any of the chalets have a reasonable view of the dry riverbed, which chalet numbers would that be?
Has anyone been there in October before? what is the game viewing like in the area and what waterholes are worth the visit.
Who is currently managing the camp and does anyone have an e-mail address for the camp manger.
I would appreciate any input and recommendations on how to make the most of our four nights at Talamati.

Can't wait to see Kruger :dance: :lol:

Hi Canine & welcome to the forum.
Stayed in Tal in sept 2001, and once in may.
The game is a bit sparse, but great sightings. On a night ride had rhino, lion, eles, and the highlight , a serval.
All the units face the back of the next for some reason, strung out along the fence next to the riverbed so each unit has its bit of river.
The manager while we were there has moved on, but I believe the ever smiling Patson is still there.

We will be staying at Talamti for the first time and would like to know what the camp is like and if there is any good viewing spots close by


Hi, Talamati is one of the nicest bushveld camps you can ever stay at, I'm going there next week, but unfortunately only for 3 nights, would've loved to stay longer, there is two birdhides, one has got spotlights and the other not, and you can expect to see many ellies having a drink at the borehole that is situated just outside the perimeter fence.

It will be now my 8th time I'm visiting this camp and it will be great to hear your responses on your return! :D

Just came back from a 5 night stay at Talamati and it was great.
We had a male lion that was hanging around the camp for 3 of the nights and we often heard him roar.
We also sighted him often from both hides during the day and night.
It was a great experience to see how other animals react when the lion appeared out of the bush to come for a drink at the waterhole.
Even a herd of elephants decided to leave when he arrived.

We also had a wonderful sighting of a cheetah close to Fairfield waterhole and a black rhino just after that!
we also saw a honey badger on 2 occasions.

The camp itself was well kept and i will definitely visit again. :D
