Depending on your time of arrival, you may get to experience your first-afternoon game drive. Game drives cover a lot of ground, offering the best opportunity of seeing plentiful wildlife. These game drives are led by experienced rangers who are incredibly knowledgeable and have a good understanding of animal behavior and tracking.
Returning to camp, you are greeted by the staff and sit down to enjoy a sumptuous dinner and roaring campfire.
The next morning, you head out on an early morning game drive. The cooler times of the day are best for game viewing as the animals are drinking from waterholes and walking around before the heat of the day sets in.
