Game safaris are done either in closed or open vehicles or by walking under the supervision of experienced nature guides who are aware of the areas’ wildlife.
They will guide you to the areas where game can be watched and encountered carefully, as we do not want to disturb them but rather observe them in their natural habitat. This is mostly done early in the morning when the heat hasn’t yet risen and the animals are active, and then later in the afternoon until sunset when different species will get active.
Nowadays open safari vehicles are most common in game parks and reserves with a ranger sitting left forward of the engine compartment. This is done so that he has a good view of the animal tracks that may occur and check the animal behaviour signs so as to guide the driver in the right direction.
A special event is night viewing.
All of this is part of the great wildlife that is on offer in Africa, guided by professionals who have the expertise to offer an extraordinary experience of a lifetime.
