GAME DRIVES | TOURIST ATTRACTION AND ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES

One of the leading private game reserves in the greater Durban – KZN

MORNING GAME DRIVES

The morning game drive unfolds the miracle of daybreak in the wilderness. Depart into the approaching dawn on a 4×4 safari vehicle with your guide. Watch the sunrise paint its glory across the vast plains, and see the wild world emerge fresh and new. Birds bring greetings, herds gather to drink at watering holes, and predators show themselves before taking shelter against the heat of day. Tracks, trails, middens and carcasses hint at the escapades of the night, and the ongoing rhythm of life in the wilderness unfurls.

AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES

The afternoon game drive departs when the heat of day begins to subside, and pauses to toast the sunset. After nightfall your safari hosts will track the impressive nocturnal animals that every safari-goer hopes to see. Expectancy mounts as your guide and tracker put their skills and acuity to good use. Add a measure of luck, and guests can look forward to sightings of Africa’s most legendary creatures.

BUSH WALKS

This is an all time favourite. Book a walk with one of our experienced game rangers. Being close to the ground alerts all your senses. The ranger will point out spoor, and the little 5. Don’t miss the opportunity to stop and take in the moment.
*Available on special request, please book in advance. Contact the office to book.
