Morning Safaris begin with a knock at your door, as your guide does wake you up. Get up, dress warmly and make your way to the Main Lodge for a warming cup of coffee or tea to start off the day. Now the adventure begins! Find a seat on the Land Cruiser, settle in and prepare to experience the early morning stirrings of the African bushveld. Each day is different and, depending on the weather, time of year, herd behaviour and various other factors you may encounter.
Afternoon Safaris begin in the late afternoon and provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy a different side of the bushveld, as day-roaming animals prepare to settle in for the night and our nocturnal friends emerge to stalk the plains. We drive into the veld as the sun begins to set, painting the sky with streaks of amber, ochre and gold, making our way into the approaching gloom of an African dusk.
