A great way of seeing the bush is from the comfort of an open 4x4 vehicle. Ride in small groups with an intimate and personal contact with your guide and the environment. Book this in advance. For those who prefer a two legged safari, a guide will expertly guide you through the bushveld on foot or you are more that welcome to walk on your own.
