A safari to delight and surprise you
- A wonderful adventure
The chance to see Africa’s iconic animals
If there’s one thing Africa does better than anywhere else in the world, it is wildlife. And there are few wildlife experiences that can beat the undiluted thrill of an afternoon spent seeing Africa’s iconic animals from the back of an open vehicle.
From searching for the Big 5 to spotting a busy dung beetle cleaning up the veld, an afternoon in the bush is a fascinating and exciting experience.
- Waterholes can be busy
After a long dusty day in the bush
The waterholes can be busy in the afternoons as the animals, after a long dusty day, come down to have a drink or in the case of the elephants, rhinos, buffalos and warthogs cool down by immersing themselves in water and having a good old mud bath.
And where there are prey bathing and drinking there are very often predators lurking.
- PREDATORS BEGIN TO EMERGE
Things get busy towards the end of the afternoon
As the golden light of the setting sun sweeps over the vast landscape there are some tremendous viewing opportunities. The predators begin to emerge after resting in the shade during the hottest part of the day. Their prey become ever more active and alert and this is also the time the listen out for alarm calls of various prey species.
And of course, there is always a spectacular African sunset to round off the day.
Why we love it
We love it because seeing an African sunset’s spectacular colours splashed over the bush is a wonderful way to end your day.
We love the way the animals become more alert and active as night begins to fall, seeking out shelter or prey. The anticipation of what we might see is a thrill that never diminishes.
