When night falls, the savannah develops a life on its own. A Night Game Drive is a great way to spot predators hunting and other species putting on a show. Wrap yourself in a warm blanket, get into the vehicle and discover the other world of the bush at night. Nocturnal species like Bush Babies, Serval cats, Aardvarks or Dik Diks are a fascinating part of the African wildlife experience, hunted by predators – hyenas, lions, leopards and jackals.
Get close to the bush and its wildlife! Our experienced guides will take you for a real-life bush walk experience. A bush walk is a great opportunity to experience the savannah in a way humans did ages ago.
