Work From Safari

Having watched this new “Work From Safari” movement evolve online for some time now, we decided that it was time for us to put it to the test with a work getaway to the Timbavati region situated in the world-renowned Greater Kruger National Park. After all, what could be better than working remotely from the peaceful serenity of the untamed African bush, coupled with game drives, bush walks and visits to some of our favourite partner lodges? We had to try it for ourselves.

With our entire team having worked remotely in isolation for months on end, it was time for all of us to reconnect back with nature and with each other. We were all in desperate need of a change of scenery and a chance to get back into the bush for some much needed team building, strat meetings and team discussions.

Our three day “Work From Safari” getaway would be held at Ranger Buck’s rustic bush hideaway situated right in the heart of the Timbavati – the perfect place for our team to spend some quality time together and start preparations for what seems like the final downturn of the global pandemic.

As with any safari, each day started well before dawn with an early morning game drive as we set out in search of the Big Five and other prolific wildlife. The Greater Kruger’s icy winter mornings meant that a coffee stop accompanied by a spectacular African sunrise would be absolutely crucial for the success of the trip – almost as crucial as a delicious bush breakfast back at the camp. Finally, when the fun was all over, it was time to settle into some strat meetings and team discussions at the camp before heading back out into the bush for a number of afternoon meetings.
