Game Viewing Big 5 Greater Kruger National Park Area
This is the reason you come to the bush, to explore its wonders and learn about the amazing flora and fauna which call it home…
Your safari at Nyala Safari Lodge is all about giving you an authentic African experience, where you can learn about the wonders of the wilderness from professional, qualified safari guides and understand the incredible way that plants and animals have evolved to live in complete harmony as part of a marvelously intricate extended environment.
From the fabled Big Five – elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard – to the smallest insects and birds – the African bush is filled with incredible flora and fauna and is, quite simply, breathtakingly beautiful.
Game drives at Nyala Safari Lodge take place twice a day, early in the morning and late in the afternoon. They last approximately three hours. We use open safari 4×4 vehicles which immerse you completely into the surrounding eco-systems, allowing you maximum viewing opportunities as we traverse the network of roads and trails on the reserve. Your experienced safari guides will share their years of experience and knowledge with you, helping you to understand the ways of wild Africa and giving you fresh appreciation for the world around you.
Please let us know any areas of particular interest, so that our guides can help you to get the very best out of your safari experience. We have a range of field guides and reference books on hand, because game viewing doesn’t stop in between game drives, as there are always birds and animals to be spotted in and around the lodge.
