Game Drives

Early morning Game Drives departs while it is still cool in north bushveld and the animals awake from their resting places. While sipping a welcome cup of coffee listening to the bush coming alive with birds and animals alike, as the sun pokes its head higher and higher into the beautiful African sky. Be on the lookout for beautiful birds and antelope moms bringing their young out of hiding.

Late afternoon Game Drives depart as the fierce heat of the day cools, the inhabitants of the bush become restless, and the animals move out of the shade of the trees. The Guinea fowl call reverberates through the bushveld, followed by the howl of the jackal. You will become aware of colours softening to the beautiful, gentle hues as the sky turns to the sensational vibrant reds, golds and oranges typical of Limpopo/Northern bushveld sunset. Evening scents fill the air as the sun dips behind the horizon. Here you can view over 25 different animal species and hundreds of bird species. Be part of different herds as they wander around in search of their favourite grazing areas.
