Imagine enjoying a sundowner just 10 minutes from Hoedspruit while hearing lions roaring in the background and watching the sun set behind the giant silhouetted mountains! Because of the reserve size being 5 500 ha/ 13 500 acres, it is big enough to host most of the Big 5 animals, but small enough to almost guarantee a good sighting each and every time. As we change over from the buzzing activities of daytime, nocturnal animals and predators become more active. They make their way down to the waterholes, graze or begin to prepare for the hunt. Regular sightings of Lions, Leopard, Hyena, Jackal and even Honey Badgers are not unusual. The fact that you’re able to search for Africa's large carnivores from an open vehicle, which permits you to observe the animal’s close-up, makes for a highly recommended activity.
Part of the drive will be with low light, so you might want to bring your camera’s flash as well. Don’t forget your wide angle lens for sundowners!
On shared game drives, you book your seat and will be billed individually with the possibility of other guests joining on the same vehicle. Although the vehicle is registered to carry 9 x guests, we limit our shared game drives to 6. This gives all our guests the opportunity to sit comfortable and next to a "window seat". This adventure offers the perfect introduction to South Africa’s wildlife and is a must for first-time safari-goers. Nature doesn’t work to a schedule, and no two game drives are alike. But that is also what makes going on safari so fascinating!
Please remember to arrive on time, or even better, 15 minutes before departure time. Upon arrival, we will leave your vehicle in the secure parking area and exchange it for the open safari vehicle (Toyota Land Cruiser).
We will start our search for those extraordinary sightings while the sun is still up. We will slowly make our way towards one of the best places to enjoy a sundowner. The refreshment stop will allow you to stretch your legs and admire your breathtaking location. We will provide something to snack on before we carry on with our search.
After dark, we will search for more wonderful sightings by means of powerful spot lights. Depending on the weather, we will stop and spend a few minutes stargazing.
The game drive will take approximately 3 hours after which we will drop you at your vehicle and say our goodbyes until next time!
Pick-up and drop-off services could be booked, but this is done separately.
