Tuli Safari Camp is about 90km west of Beitbridge on the eastern bank of the Shashe River. Had a chance to visit sometime before the elections we had this year and these are some of the photos I took of the wildlife and landscapes in the area. Obviously being a Hunting Safari Camp, the game is very elusive, and also traveling with hunters, priority is to get game, photos later. So one has to be well fast/experienced and have the right gear. But there is all kinds of animals, including elephants, giraffes, eland, kudu, impala, zebra, jackals, hyena, leopard and lions. I won’t forget the one day we spent all morning till midday trying to track eland, I haven’t walked that much ever! After tracking for about 3hrs, a lion roars and its so close. There is nothing nearly as terrifying as a lion roar, I forgot how tired I was and followed the guide and hunters right back to where we had left the car. Network coverage for Econet, Telecel and Netone is actually still an issue in Tuli, so if you are to visit there you need to switch to roaming when you get to Gwanda or you can buy some of the MTN lines and cards sold by the locals in the area. Tuli was fun!
About to cross the Shashe river to where camp was. You will need a 4 x 4 truck for this or you will get stuck.
Shashe river has flow restricted to a few days of the year, but if you dig a little you will hit water, and this is the water we used at camp.
