MEET YOUR PROFESSIONAL GUIDE, WHO SHARES YOUR INTERESTS
The game drive will form a key part of your overall experience on a safari holiday. This is where you will set out from your lodge or camp in an open topped vehicle to explore the surrounding areas, both in search of animals and also to absorb the untouched natural world around you.
You will normally either set off on your game drive early in the morning, later in the afternoon or evening, or even after dark. Animals are normally more mobile early in the morning and in the afternoon as they often choose to rest during the heat of day, so this timing makes them a little easier to spot when you head out.
A morning game drive is fresh and crisp, if not cool in winter, and is about bringing in a new morning in the wild. You will feel the early morning dew on the leaves of trees, see the early morning sunlight - which is also great for photography - and share the experience of wild animals as they prepare for a new day.
On an afternoon or evening game drive, the feel is more of a day coming to a close. As the heat of day on an African savannah starts to subside, things begin to come to life again. Herds of antelope are on the move, and predator cats begin to become mobile as they prepare for a night of hunting ahead.
The game drive is peaceful and serene, natural and enjoyable. The times of not seeing much wildlife allow you to appreciate the expanse of your surroundings, while the times of spotting exciting wildlife bring exactly the excitement you’re looking for.
