Walking Safaris

Walking Safaris

Visitors may head out on foot with their armed ranger. The perspective of the bush is entirely different to that of a vehicle, and guests will learn to read the signs of the wild, and perhaps come into close contact with the different animal species on the reserve.

Game Viewing

Game Viewing

In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road or watching animals from the hide.

Game Drives

Game Drives

Game drives are interpretive drives in the bush specially adapted four-wheel drive vehicles, with the purpose of finding wildlife in a natural habitat. Rest your feet while going deeper and farther than you ever thought possible for up-close game encounters you won’t believe. Also, there are night drives, with the aid of powerful spotlights, which bring the bush to life at night.

Boma Dinners
