Explore the nocturnal life in the wild with an evening game drive. A night game drive offers you a chance to see predators stalking their prey (however, a kill is not always guaranteed). See night birds like owls, watch the shining eyes of wild animals, listen to the chirping crickets and howling animals, and watch hippos come out of the water to graze. A night drive is a perfect way to enjoy being in nature while watching the stars and experiencing the cool nighttime breeze.
Day 2: Early morning game drive
The bush never sleeps! Wake up before sunrise to go on an early morning game drive and watch the wildlife enjoying the cool early-morning breeze. If you are lucky, you might spot a kill or a leopard dragging its kill up the tree. Watch lions roam around before they hide from the heat of the sun. Enjoy a coffee while you watch the beautiful African sunrise and then continue the game drive. At 10:30 am, your return to the lodge to relax for the day. Enjoy lunch, chill by the pool, and take a nap.
You will finish off the day with a sunset game drive that starts at 4:30 pm and ends at 7:30 pm. A sunset game drive is a great way to watch the sunset while you enjoy the wildlife and see the animals come to the waterhole. You will end the day with dinner at the lodge and prepare for the next day.
