An Example Tour Itinerary:
(Your own particular safari schedule may well differ depending on where you are staying, what you see on safari and if you are in a vehicle or on foot.)
6am – Meet your guide for tea/coffee. Early morning game drives are an excellent time to find the Big 5 and many other wildlife species.
9am – Breakfast/ There will be beautifully prepared cooked or cold breakfast options available.
11am – Game walk/ tree & shrub ID/ medicinal uses/ swim/ or just relax…
1pm – A delicious lunch is served. Then just soak up the beauty of your surroundings.
4pm – Meet with your guides for your 2nd safari of the day with the African sunset as your backdrop. Many animal species are more active now the day is cooler and predators are out hunting.
6pm – Sundowner. Still out on your safari your guide will find a suitable spot for a ‘sundowner’ glass of wine, beer or soft drink or your choice. This is a great African safari tradition.
7pm – Dinner is often taken outside by the camp fire. If there are good sightings on safari, dinner will wait for you.
8pm – Night safari. There is a wide variety of animal species to be seen by torch light and your guide will use a very powerful torch for this. With lions roaring and hyenas calling, the African bush is alive and a wonderful place to be at night.
