Enhance your nature experience with guided game drives and bush walks. A game drive in an open safari vehicle not only gets you closer – you can smell nature and your sight is increased by the elevated seating position – but it gets enriched by the wealth of knowledge and experience the qualified field guides are sharing.
During your morning coffee with home baked rusks or sundowners in a secluded area in the middle of the bush or on the riverbank, your guide will share legendary tales of mating ostrich and laughing hyena.
Guided game drives come with age restrictions for children. Please check details with your chosen operator. You can’t get more exposure than with a guided bush walk. In very small groups guided by two especially trained guides it is all about tracking animals and observing them in their natural habitat without them even sensing that you are there. And being on foot gets you so much closer especially to the small things that otherwise you may just ignore. You learn about tracks what what they tell and even if you don’t find the big encounter you may get hooked into e.g. dung beetle activity and how fascinating the small things are. And time flies by.
If you consider a walk be prepared with appropriate footwear and clothing and enough water. A certain level of fitness is required and your medical condition must allow exposure to the sun and temperatures for 3 – 4 hours.
Bush Walks are not suited for children as their size and behaviour may fall into prey patterns of the predators.
