Out on a approx 4 hour game drive from 15h30 or 16h00. Return after a period of night driving where the nocturnal species are searched for by spotlight. These drives normally carry 6 to 8 passengers and are in open Land Rover type vehicles. The driver is an experienced guide who will make the drive more interesting. A tracker sits in front and follows the animals, often off road to secure sightings which are often really close and clear.
Early next morning at dawn its up, coffee and rusks and out on a game drive again for about 4 hours returning to breakfast. After breakfast there is an opportunity to go on a guided walk in the bush with an armed ranger. This usually focuses on the tracks, insects, birds and the smaller animals. Alternatively relax at the Lodge. Many have a lovely outlook into the bush, possibly a water-hole at which a variety of animals visit during the day. Lunch and then the cycle repeats with the afternoon safari game drive.
Some of the venues dine in open air bomas. Guests sit at tables around a fire in the enclosure. The accommodation is generally rustic, three to five star. There are some super luxury venues too.
