A Day on Safari

An early start!
We wake up with the sun to beat the heat of the day and witness the wildlife and landscapes bathed in the beautiful morning glow.

Dressed in light, layered clothing and sturdy shoes, and after a quick coffee or tea, we board our safari vehicle. The mornings can still be quite cold so we suggest you also bring a scarf and beanie.

Our safari vehicles are normally 7 or 9 person 4WDs so everyone gets close to the action. For touring in East Africa, our 4WDs travel with only 6 people in each - meaning everyone gets a window seat. In some of the national parks our vehicles are open-top, and in others we're enclosed for protection.

Have your camera and binoculars ready. Our drivers and guides are experts and will find the best spots to see a myriad of local wildlife over the next few hours.

Relax and recharge
After an exciting morning we'll return to the lodge for breakfast. Then it's time to relax, lounge by the pool with a book or explore the grounds.

There's some more time at leisure after lunch where you might want to catch up on sleep after our early-morning start.


Evening excitement
As the sun begins to set, we prepare for our second game drive of the day. We head off on another incredible game drive, this time to capture the magnificent wildlife and scenery in the golden hour.

It wouldn't be a trip to Africa without sundowners overlooking the vast savannahs. We'll then return to our lodge and prepare for dinner and an evening under the stars.

 


 

Permits Included

We don’t like added extras, so our tour and independent and extension package prices include entrance to all national parks and reserves.

We've also covered the permits for gorilla and golden monkey tracking.

To give you an idea, a gorilla-tracking permit costs approximately US$1,500 per person and a golden monkey permit around US$100 per person.
