Game Drives

The word “safari” conjures up images of open-air vehicles, vast open plains and herds of great animals. A game drive is an iconic way in which to take a safari and get in touch with the wilds.

An experience you can't put a price on

The beauty of a game drive is that you can cover vast areas of ground to find the animals you want to see from the safety and comfort of a customised open-sided vehicle.

  • Robust open-air vehicles designed for comfort and spectacular game viewing.

  • Experienced guides who share their knowledge while keeping you safe.

  • Span vast terrains and biomes, seeing a variety of fauna and flora.

  • Get off the beaten track and get up close to animals.


Game drive highlights

See animals in their natural habitat

Our rangers agree – no two drives are ever the same. Each outing is ripe with potential. Sometimes it will be a pack of African wild dogs trotting on the hunt and at others, it may be a lioness drinking at a waterhole with her cubs. It’s nature’s version of the lotto.

  • Get into the animal’s environment and see how they live.
  • Our highly trained guides and hosts will open your eyes and your mind. 
  • Uncover the fine balance between animals, their environment and conservation.
  • Witness the drama and majesty of predators and prey.

There is no better place to learn about the delicate relationship between biomes, plants and animals than in the bush – where the animals greatly outnumber the humans.
