This undulating landscape means that there are many great vantage points, perfect for spotting any movement below from the iconic big cats to the bushveld's scavangers. The flowing waters of the Olifant’s River run through the reserve and crocodiles can nearly always be seen lurking in the water or basking in the sun.
Nambu Camp is built in the heart of the Balule Private Nature Reserve which is open to the Kruger National Park. This wild and diverse reserve is home to the big five and overall a vast array of wildlife. The camp itself overlooks a winding dry riverbed and bustling waterhole. There are also many natural springs dotted throughout the traverse, which attracts much life, of all shapes and sizes. Animals are free to move and roam, you may come across herds of elephants down at the river, towering giraffes to the bushveld's most elusive predators, you never know what you may see, out in the wild.
The Balule birdlife is second to none with a huge variety of riverine species drawn to the winding waterway. The rare pel’s fishing owl has often been seen as well as kingfishers, herons, vultures and many eagle species. However, a perfect location to observe the birdlife, is at the camp itself – where a tawny eagle’s nest can be seen in front and vibrant sunbirds are attracted by the flourishing gardens here at Nambu.
Bird-watching at camp is a true highlight.
