Essence of a Safari

Most classical safaris involve either a game drive in a safari vehicle or a bush walk.
The word “game” refers to wild animals.

Game Drive

Exploring the African savannah
in a game drive vehicle allows
you to see lots of animals as you
can cover long distances.

Wild animals are usually active early mornings and late afternoons. Game drives occur in early mornings between 6 and 10 am, including a little bush break consisting of rusks, coffee and other nice goodies before going back to the lodge for a proper brunch.

Another game drive is usually offered in the afternoon between around 3:30 and 7pm. These drives offer a new dimension to the safari as it gets dark – you will experience the excitement of spotting nocturnal animals such as bushbabies, spring hares, an aardvark or an elusive leopard or other predator stalking its prey.

Walking Safari

We encourage participants to go on a walking trail, including the option to sleep under canvas or right under the stars.

Why?

The purpose of a walking safari is not to tick the big five off a list or to see as much game as possible. It is about giving you a more authentic and thrilling connection with the environment surrounding you and allowing the magic to unfold.

A transformative retreat in true wilderness, more specifically walking with your guide in a big 5* area, invites you to embrace your vulnerability towards the unforeseen. It triggers your senses and brings you in touch with your intuition as you become alert to the slightest signs and sounds of the bush. You become humbled as you find yourself being integrated back into the fabric of nature, taking your place among other species as your rank and status is re-calibrated.

Safety

Safety is paramount. The guides leading those walks are extremely qualified, have rifle handling and first aid certificates, and have logged hundreds of hours of walking in dangerous game areas.

They will make sure that all participants feel relaxed, although being out of one’s comfort zone is part of the experience. This close-up contact with wild nature will give you memories you’ll keep forever.

As you’ll make your way through the bush, you will stumble upon sightings that we wouldn’t normally look out for on a game drive. Your guide will teach you how to identify animal tracks, tell you about birds and insects and the local geology, and share the conservation challenges they face. You will kneel down and watch in awe as a herd of elephants or buffalos passes.

By the time you retire to your canvas tent for the night, with the smell of dust and campfire on your clothes, you may hear an owl calling and the faint laugh of hyenas in the distance. Civilisation and technology totally forgotten.
