Day on Safari

We give you a wake-up call at sunrise with hot water for your morning ablutions, followed by a light continental breakfast. Then we then set off for an early morning game activity (a game drive in an open safari vehicle to track the nocturnal animals making their way to bed, boat trip, game walk, canoeing, etc). We like to keep the activities flexible depending on what surprises we might find in the bush. We usually return for brunch and siesta. Tea & snacks are served before we set off on the afternoon game activity. We return to camp at dark to find the campfires blazing and drinks on ice and snacks ready. Hot showers are available to wash off the day’s heat and dust. Dinner is served in the dining tent or under the stars to the blissful call of lions, hyena and jackal.

 

On days when we are moving from one campsite to another we rise early, have a light breakfast and spend the day game viewing and driving to our next destination with a picnic lunch en route. Once we are out of the way the staff will break and move camp. We will then meet up and drive in convoy to the next campsite where the staff will set up camp while we explore our new surroundings.
