Game Drive

Morning game drives introduce you to the beauty of the South African dawn and nature’s waking glory.

Experience magical sunsets on evening game drives, when, as dusk falls, a whole new world of nocturnal wildlife will enchant you as it comes to life.

Morning drives – Between 6:00 and 10:00 – depending on the weather & season.

Afternoon/Evening Drives – Between 15:30 and 20:00 – depending on weather & season.

KINDLY NOTE that children 2 to 12yrs are welcome to join us on our game drives, however; these drives will not be allowed within 50 meters of a big five sighting, however this is at the discretion of the ranger at the time of the sighting. This arrangement is for the safety of the children as well as for the rest of the people on the game drive vehicle. Small children must remain quiet on drives so as to not inconvenience other guests and other game drives. Unruly behavior will result in the game drive returning to the lodge and continuing without these children / guests.
