Big 5 Game Drives
One of the main features of a safari is a 4x4 game drive. On game drives you are able to get a lot closer to big game than on a self-drive safari, as you are guided by experienced rangers and in appropriate vehicles. The animals are generally habituated to the vehicle. This enables to you to get within 5 to 10 metres of the large animals - and safely!
All game drives are conducted in open 4 x 4 Land Rovers; which are perfect for photographic and video opportunities. The afternoon game drives generally leave at 16:00 and include late afternoon game spotting, a sundowner stop and a game drive that continues into the night.
Sundowners in the bush
Every game drive includes a leg-stretch at sunset, at which point, guides unpack a cooler box containing refreshments and snacks. A safari tradition known as 'sundowners' is an opportunity to set foot on the African soil and admire the surrounding bush as the sun sets, while sipping on an ice-cold G n T!
