Game Drives 2017-05-22T00:00:57+00:00

Experience the thrill of a 4×4 Safari

The most common way to view the iconic wildlife of Africa is by 4WD vehicle. Styles of vehicle vary according to regions, generally with open-sided Land Rovers in South Africa to closed 4X4s in Namibia, Kenya and Tanzania with pop-up rooftops for photography and closer inspection.

Game drives usually take place early in the morning and in the evening, when animals are at their most active. Night drives are an eye-opening experience uncovering rarely seen nocturnal species such as pangolin and aardvark, while off-road driving is both a thrill and an opportunity to follow more elusive members of the animal kingdom through the bush. Both these activities offer exceptional close encounters with wildlife but bear in mind that they are only usually allowed in private concessions outside of national parks.

Exciting Wildlife Encounters

Travelling with our trusted operators, you are assured of an experienced driver/guide who will scour the bush searching out creatures to show you. See the “Big 5” – elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino – and perhaps even learn about all the different smaller species that inhabit the African wilderness.
