Description
Du Toitskloof Pass, (English: Du Toit 's Gap) Is situated in the Western Cape province of South Africa, on the Regional road R101 between Paarl and Worcester. The pass was named after Francois Du Toit, a 17th century Huguenot pioneer who settled in the foothills. It was initially an animal track where a road was built around the time of World War II. Originally 48km long, the pass climbed to 820 m. The Huguenot tunnel was opened in 1988 (the largest curved structure in South Africa) shortens the road by 11 km - it is operated as a toll road. There is an impressive viaduct on the Paarl approach side. The surrounding peaks often sport a covering of snow and the Mountain Club of South Africa has huts in the area. Du Toit's peak is the highest mountain at 1995 m.

Kruger Park - Tamboti
Kruger Park - Tamboti (Website)

Tamboti tented camp is a small camp situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2 km east of Orpen Rest Camp. Due to the size and location of this camp, Tamboti is one of the most popular camps in the Park. A great feature is a boma, which makes it ideal for small groups of people to gather around the campfire and relive the animal sightings of the day. For the birding enthusiasts, Tamboti offers a bird hide in which to spend hours looking for that exclusive raptor that has up to now eluded you. The natural bush feeling is kept inside the camp, which has the result of emphasizing guest privacy.
