Game Drives

A safari means nothing without its animals, also known as ‘game’. We offer daily morning and evening game drives in open jeeps, led by qualified guiding rangers who will provide fascinating insights into the complex ecosystems of the South African bush. Our expert guides will bring you thrillingly close to the Big Five for an unrivalled wildlife encounter. The restriction of private vehicles in the reserve makes for a particularly intimate bush experience.
