Dag 3:

Game drive in the Big Five area

In the morning, you will go on an atmospheric morning game drive. The footprints from the activities of the night are still fresh, and you might get the chance to experience the Big Five – the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard.

You will also have the possibility to experience many other African animals such as giraffes, zebras, kudus, warthogs, and impalas.

During the game drive, you will have a tea / coffee break by a beautiful vantage point, where you can enjoy the first rays of sunshine.

Afterwards, return to the lodge to have breakfast, relax by the swimming pool, and enjoy the amazing view of African wildlife in one of the small observation terraces.

In the afternoon, you will go on an intense bush walk* with a ranger, who can tell you about animal footprints and plants along the way. A bush walk gives you the opportunity to experience the wildlife very differently than from a safari vehicle.

If you are travelling with children, please be aware that children under the age of 12 cannot participate in the bush walk (current legislation).

Returning to the lodge, you will have time to relax before dinner is served.

 

*If you are going on a safari in South Africa during the South African summer months, the bush walk will be replaced by a game drive focusing on animal footprints. Children from the age of 3 can participate. The visibility in the bush during the summer months is too poor for it to be safe to move around by foot, but if the ranger considers it to be safe, you might get the chance to take a little walk in an area of good visibility.
